Normally when I share a new slow cooker recipe on Kalyn’s Kitchen I wait a few months before I feature that recipe here, but since Thanksgiving is less than a week away and this Slow Cooker Lemony Turkey Soup with Spinach and Orzo was so, so good, it went right to the front of the line. I shared this delicious soup with my sister Pam and her family, and they all pronounced it to be a keeper; hope you enjoy!
Ingredients for this recipe:
- Homemade chicken or turkey stock (or canned low-sodium chicken broth)
- poultry seasoning
- dried thyme
- black pepper
- Penzey’s turkey soup base (optional)
- chopped onion
- chopped celery
- chopped carrots
- whole wheat orzo
- diced cooked turkey (or chicken)
- fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Suggested Slow Cooker Size:
I used a Crock-Pot 5-Quart Smart-Pot Slow Cooker, but a slightly smaller size will work.
