Ground Turkey and Rice Soup

So I really don't know what to call this soup.  I was in the mood for something really easy after a long morning of cleaning the house...all my chicken was frozen and I had a pack of ground turkey to use.  So, I put my thinking cap on and started cooking and throwing ingredients into the crock pot (my best friend once school starts!).  And the outcome was absolutely delicious and my family LOVED it!

So for those of you who have never used a crock pot or don't have one...RUN, don't walk to go get one today!  This is seriously my favorite appliance in my kitchen (ok...VitaMix is right on up there too).  I need to do an entire series on crock pot meals because I love them so much!  I'm on my 3rd one!!

Ok, back to the soup!  Here's the ingredients below...everything is an "about" measurement.  When I'm making soups, I really don't measure things, I just throw them in!  You can't "mess up" a soup in my opinion (ok, I'm sure you can...but not the ones that I's a free-for-all of whatever I have in the pantry and freezer!!).  So feel free to adapt and change as you see fit!

Ground Turkey and Rice Soup


  • 1 pound of ground turkey (browned and drained)
  • chicken stock (I use "Better than Bouillon" about a tablespoon and then fill up my crockpot with water and taste as I go)  
  • 1/2 onion, chopped - browned in skillet
  • 2-3 carrots, chopped small and browned with onion
  • 1 to 1-1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup of brown rice (no need to be cooked it will cook in crock pot, as it cooks a long time this gives the soup a little "thicker" consistency to it!)
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Oregano (or more to taste)
  • 1 tsp Thyme (or more to taste)
Put everything into the crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or more.  Top with cheese!  Enjoy!
