My Boyfriend Cooks Better Than Yours (Turkey Kale Soup Recipe)

You know you've found the one when you daydream about how mesmerizing they are in the kitchen. And I'm not talking about how ravishing Matt looks in an apron 😍, but how talented he is with a pan and some spices. He's never been formally trained as a chef, yet his culinary creations are unparalleled: his bolognese sauce is to die for and his lemon-garlic chicken thighs would bring even Gordon Ramsay to tears.

But sadly Matt has made it clear that, (despite my constant nagging) he will never start his own cooking show. 😭 He has chosen to hide his gift from the world, so I have taken it upon myself to share his wizardry. That's right, get excited: because I'm finally spilling the beans on my FAVORITE soup ever: his Turkey Kale Garbanzo Soup. 😍  You can thank me later.

Turkey Kale Garbanzo Soup


1 box of pasta (aim for smaller noodles)

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 lb. lean ground turkey

1 cup of chopped onion

3 cloves of garlic, minced

1 can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed

1 tbsp. sage

1 tbsp. chopped rosemary

1 carton of chicken broth

1 small can of tomato paste

2 cups of chopped kale

3/4 cup water


Step 1. Use your noodles.

Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water for about 10-15 minutes until tender, then drain it thoroughly. 

Step 2. Make it sizzle.

Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a large pan and add the ground turkey, chopped onion, and minced garlic. Cook until the meat browns and the onion softens.

Step 3. Spice it up.

Stir in the sage and the rosemary for about 1 minute. But don't let the herbs brown! (Seriously, don't do it. I've made this mistake before...)

Step 4. Kale yeah!

Pour in the chicken broth, water, garbanzo beans, and tomato paste. Bring the soup to a boil and then add the kale. Simmer for about 5 minutes and then add salt and pepper to taste. Finally, stir in the noodles.

Bon appétit!
