Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: STomlinson


1 cup celery-chopped
1 cup carrots-chopped
1 cup potatoes-peeled and diced
2 cloves garlic-minced
1 lb ground chicken or turkey (optional)
1/2 cup frozen carrots
1/2 cup frozen green beans
1 cup uncooked pasta-your choice(penne, rotini, etc) (optional)
2-3 Tbsp olive oil
5 cups chicken stock
1 Tbsp oregano
1 Tbsp basil
1 cup onion-chopped
1 15 oz can diced tomatos
5-6 Tbsp whole wheat flour (optional)


In a large stock pot, heat olive oil. Add carrots, onion, celery, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, until onions and celery start to get translucent.

Add ground chicken or turkey and cook until lightly browned.

Add potatoes, chicken stock and tomatoes. Season with salt, pepper, basil and oregano. Bring soup to boil then cover and lower heat to simmer about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add frozen vegetables and uncooked pasta and bring back to a boil. Lower heat again and simmer about 10-15 minutes, or until pasta is tender.

Turn off heat and add flour to thicken broth to desired consistency. If you like soup as is, do not add flour as it will thicken to more of a stew consistency.


My 2 year old is allergic to dairy, and she loved the Gerber Graduates chicken and turkey stews, but they are loaded with salt and other ingredients I cannot pronounce! So I decided to make this for her instead, and I only use the flour to thicken the soup, because she prefers that consistency. If you or your child like regular soup or have an allergy to wheat, omit the flour and it's still really good! I make this is a large batch and freeze the soup in individual freezer bags for her so I can have a healthy lunch or dinner for her in a matter of minutes. This soup will make about 8-10 servings for a toddler and will freeze for a month, perhaps a bit longer. Hope you enjoy it!


Can substitute rice pasta for regular pasta.

Can substitute any frozen vegetables for corn/green beans, or add extra for more veggies!

If avoiding wheat/gluten, omit the flour or use a different thickener. Use rice based pasta or omit.

Be sure to check your ground poultry for seasonings or other flavorings.

Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
