Basil Turkey Soup

Winter marches on here in New England, and more and more, I find myself craving soup.  Some days I have lots of time to put something together.  For the days that I don't, this Basil Turkey Soup is perfect.   It's easy to keep all the ingredients on hand, and you could definitely use either chicken or turkey.  This time around, I used reduced sodium chicken broth. You can use whatever veggie combination you like, I went with a peas, carrots, corn, green bean mix. It would also be great with fire roasted tomatoes.

Thanks so much to Kate for hosting #SoupSwap and to all the #FestiveFoodies for sharing recipes!
