1 T. olive oil
1 1/4 lb. Italian-seasoned ground turkey
1 c. sweet onion, chopped
1 c. carrots, chopped
1 T. garlic, minced
black pepper to taste
5 to 6 c. beef broth (low sodium)
1 can low sodium diced tomatoes, with liquid
1 can low sodium garbanzo beans, drained & rinsed
1/3 tsp. dried rosemary
1/2 T. dried basil
6 oz. bag of fresh spinach, rinsed
shredded parmesan cheese

In a soup pot or dutch oven, heat the oil over medium-high heat and cook the ground turkey, onion, carrots, garlic; add pepper to taste. Cook and stir until all the meat and vegetables have released their moisture and the ground turkey starts sticking a little, about 15 minutes. (This ensures the turkey is cooked all the way through, as it doesn't really "brown" much like burger does.)

Add the beef broth, then bring to a simmer and cook for about 20 more minutes, or until the carrots are tender. Now add the rest of the ingredients except the cheese, and bring back to a simmer for a few more minutes until the spinach is wilted. You can eat this now, or cover and keep warm until ready to serve.
