This soup is both hearty and light so you can feel satisfied without any guilt. I have been snacking on this soup the past couple of days and I just can’t get enough of it it! I hope you will love it too.
To keep things simple and to pack in lots of flavor, I used a bag of Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles. When you are grocery shopping, you will be looking for a package that looks like this:
Stockpot Soup or Instant Pot Soup.
You can make this in your stockpot on the stove-top or in your Instant Pot. I found that the quicker and easier method was actually to cook it on the stove-top so those are the directions I am giving below. If you decide to make yours in an Instant Pot just cook the onion and garlic in oil on the saute setting on the IP. Then add remaining ingredients, set for 17 minutes on HIGH pressure. Once cooking time is done, release pressure naturally 5 minutes and then quick release the rest of the pressure.
This soup makes a lot! You will have 12 cups either way you cook it. The soup is divided into 8 (1-1/2 cup) servings that are just 2 WW FreeStyle Smart Points each, so you can eat til your heart’s content! Enjoy!!
