This recipe actually comes from my sister. The funny thing is that she isn’t a THM’er and she wasn’t even trying to make a recipe that worked in my eating plan, but she did and it was so good!
My first time creating this soup myself I used Italian sausage and realized after the fact that that meat combined with the beans probably created a crossover instead of on E.
When my sister made it for me and my husband she used ground chicken instead of sausage. That’s the wonderful thing about soup like this, there are so many ways you can make it and it will still taste good.
Pair this soup with a side salad and a sprouted grain roll or peice of toast for a complete meal.
Italian Minestrone Crockpot Soup (THM-E)
1 lb lean meat (ground chicken or turkey)
1-14.5 oz diced tomatoes
3-14.5 oz chicken broth
1-15.5 oz can rinsed and drained Great Northern Beans
1 Med zucchini chopped
1 cup copped carrots
1/2 medium onion diced
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
Brown meat of choice in a frying pan with the onions. (if you want to use Italian sausage I believe the meal would then become a crossover)
While cooking put all other ingredients in the crockpot
Rinse meat under hot water to get rid of excess grease, add to crockpot
Cook on low for 8 hour or high for 4 hours
Serve with a green salad and sprouted toast or roll.
