Easy Ground Turkey Rice Soup (Gluten-free, Dairy-free)

Servings: 6 people
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 shallot , minced (or 1/2 of an onion minced)
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 3-4 large carrots, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 piece/stalk of celery, sliced into 1/4 inch rounds
  • 1 pound yellow potatoes, diced into 1 inch sized cubes
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast, (optional but adds great flavor)
  • 1/2 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup white rice, (I used basmati)


  • Add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to a large soup pan, along with the minced shallot and garlic and sauté over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Then add the ground turkey to the pan. Break up the ground turkey while mixing it into the shallot and onion. Saute until the turkey is cooked through and light in color, 4-6 minutes.
  • Lower heat to low. Add in the chicken broth, carrots, celery, potatoes, parsley, thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, peas and almond milk.
  • Increase heat until the soup boils, then reduce heat to low medium so that it simmers or soft boils. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the rice, and cook for 15-20 more minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
