And the best part?  It’s freezer friendly, which means you can save it to make later (just in case you’ve had enough turkey for now!) To make it as part of a freezer cooking day, just split the soup into multiple bags, then throw it right into the freezer–no cooking required!

Step 5: Ladle into bowls, top with grated Pecorino Romano and serve with your favorite bread.

*If wanting to freeze, place soup mixture in gallon size freezer bags ( be sure to label bags first). And place in freezer until ready to use. On cooking day, place frozen soup directly into slow cooker. Set to high and cook for 2-3 hours or on low for 4-5 hours.

    This looks super healthy I love vegtables. The chicken broth looks like it would add tons of flavor. I’m on a diet I bet this would be a tasty meal that would be filling and help with losing weight. Great recipe. It,s definitely on my bucket list.

    This looks so delicious! I am wanting to freeze a bunch for later in the winter – does the rice freeze well? Or does it get mushy when taken back out and re-cooked?

      It will get a little mushy. But what will happen is it will make your soup a little thicker. 🙂
