Scale

Ingredients

Optional Garnishes: Sliced green onion tops (green parts only), shredded Cheddar cheese (or other low FODMAP cheese), crushed corn tortilla chips


Instructions

Stove-Top Instructions

  1. Heat a Dutch oven or soup pot (with cover) over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil and leek leaves. Saute leek leaves until bright green, fragrant, and soft.
  2. Add ground turkey and cook, breaking into crumbles, until almost completely browned. Once the turkey is almost cooked, stir in the tomato paste and cook about 1 minute more.
  3. Add the low FODMAP chicken broth, sweet potatoes, chopped tomatoes, low FODMAP taco seasoning, and ground cinnamon to the turkey mixture and stir to mix. Adjust heat to high, and bring soup to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 12-15 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender.
  4. Stir in drained and rinsed lentils and continue cooking until soup is heated throughout. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve warm with optional garnishes.

Slow Cooker Instructions

  1. Heat a medium skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil and leek leaves. Saute leek leaves until bright green, fragrant, and soft.
  2. Add ground turkey and cook, breaking into crumbles, until almost completely browned. Once the turkey is almost cooked, stir in the tomato paste and cook about 1 minute. This helps to bring out the flavors of the tomato paste. Transfer the turkey mixture to the slow cooker.
  3. Add the low FODMAP chicken broth, sweet potatoes, chopped tomatoes, low FODMAP taco seasoning, and ground cinnamon to the turkey mixture in the slow cooker and stir to mix.
  4. Cook on low for about 4 hours, or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
  5. Stir in drained and rinsed canned lentils. Continue cooking for 10 minutes or until the lentils are hot. Season with salt and pepper
  6. Serve warm with optional garnishes.

Storage: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3-4 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.


Notes

Substituting canned tomatoes: If you don’t have fresh tomatoes, a 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes works well in this recipe. If your canned tomatoes and taco seasoning contain salt, you may want to reduce the amount of taco seasoning used or add it at the end, adjusting to taste.
