Real Food Recipe of the Week: Leftover Turkey & Bean Soup

divini rae recipeIf you ended up with leftovers from your Thanksgiving feast, don’t you worry. This simple soup recipe will help you use it all up easily (not to mention deliciously.)

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 tsp. coconut
  • Leftover shredded turkey
  • 3 tsp. chipotles in adobo sauce, blended
  • 2 cans organic vegetable broth
  • 2 cups black beans
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¼ tsp. salt


  • Melt the coconut oil in a pan, and add in your turkey. Cook just long enough to brown (about 3 minutes, usually.)


  • Add in the chipotles, broth and beans, mix together, and bring to a boil.


  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to a medium-low, and simmer for about 5 minutes with the lid on.


  • Add in half the cilantro and your salt, and stir. Cook about 1 minute, and remove from heat.


  • Serve up in individual bowls, and top with the remaining cilantro.


If you have limes, this dish tastes great with a quick squeeze of lime juice over top. Hope you all had a wonderful, delicious and, hopefully, healthy Thanksgiving!
