Turnip Green And White Bean Soup

photo(24)I had this delicious turnip green soup a few weeks ago and I’ve been trying to recreate it ever since. I’ve googled a few similar recipes and I’ve messed around with different seasonsings because – as with any recipe – my goal is SIMPLICITY. I don’t want to use anything fresh or complicated. I mean – don’t get me wrong – I love roasting fresh veggies from the Farmer’s Market. But generic crock-pot recipes? Those are the things I cook on a busy week so requiring fresh ingredients? Defeats the purpose. Last night I finally made a batch this week that I love so I’m documenting it so I can cook it forever.

One more thing – while putting together this recipe my goal was to fill the crockpot as A) We have five people in my family and B) I eat leftover for lunch every day. This recipe fills the standard crockpot. IT MAKES A LOT OF SOUP is what I’m saying.

Turnip Green and White Bean Soup

A Delicious And Easy Soup Your Kids Will Never Eat Because…GREENS! EW!


  • 32 oz carton of chicken broth
  • 2 cans of great northern beans
  • 2 cans of whole kernel corn
  • 1 can of rotel
  • 1 large 27 oz can or 2 16oz cans of turnip greens
  • 2 packets of Knorr Vegetable seasoning
  • One package of kielbasa – sliced (I use Jennie-O turkey)

Dump in crockpot. Cook on low for 5+ hours. (I left it in for 8 the other day and it was FINE.)

Now – this soup is SUPER tasty but…BUT…if your kids are anything like mine? They won’t eat it. Because – you know – GREENS! EW! Some parents force/train their kids to eat things they don’t like. I am too lazy to fight about it, so what I did was cooked some cheese-filled tortellinis to go with the soup – the kids ate the tortellinis alone and we dumped what they didn’t eat into the soup. Everyone’s happy!
