Happy 2011!

Happy New Year everyone!Hope it brings the realization of all your dreams and wishes. Whose resolution list includes points such as eat more healthy or lose weight? I thought that I would start my 2011 blog posts with a healthy Kale, White Bean and Turkey Meatball Soup.

Ingredients: 1/2 lb ground turkey, 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning, 1/4 cup breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons milk or cream, 1 potato cubed, 2 carrots cubed, 1/2 lb kale stemmed and chopped,1 16 oz can of white beans washed and drained,4 cups turkey or chicken broth, 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.Begin by making the meatballs. Mix ground turkey with breadcrumbs, milk, breadcrumbs and Italian seasoning.

Form round meatballs and lay on a buttered cookie pan

Bake for 30 minutes until the meatballs are throughly cooked through. Add olive oil to a pot on medium heat. Add potato, carrots, salt and pepper.

Cook for 7 to 10 minutes before adding kale

Cook for a few minutes and add the broth. Simmer for 20 minutes. Add meatballs and beans.

Cook for another 7 minutes and serve
