  • 1 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 Medium Fennel Bulbs, sliced thin
  • 1 Large Onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 C. Nueske's Applewood Smoked Turkey, cubed to 1/2"
  • 2 Large Carrots, coined
  • 1 Can (15 oz.) Cannellini Beans, drained
  • 1 Can (15 oz.) Butter Beans, drained
  • 1 Can (15 oz.) Diced Tomatoes & Juice (a jar of homemade diced tomatoes would be great!)

Remove the bay leaf and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.  Stir the torn spinach into the soup just before serving.  Serve garnished with the grated parmesan cheese.

Best Soup EVER!


Hubby said this is the best soup he has ever had. I agree! I think the ingredients needs to be edited to say 8 cups of chicken broth; 8 cups chicken broth is currently listed twice. I made it with 8 cups. THANK YOU!
