Turkey, Red Pepper, Arugula, and Hominy Soup

  • Yield servings

The name of this one says it all, for that’s all that’s in here. But the flavors come together to make something tasty and cozy that is perfect for curling up in front of the fire on a cold and rainy day.

Susan Byrnes


2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped yellow onions
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 teaspoon salt
8 cups chicken or turkey stock
1 bunch arugula, well washed and leaves chopped
2 (15-ounce) cans hominy, drained
12 ounces shredded cooked roast turkey


  1. Heat the oil in a large stockpot and cook the onions until they are translucent, about 7 minutes. Add the diced red peppers and cook until they soften, about 5 to 7 more minutes. Add the salt and stir.
  2. Add the stock and bring the soup to a boil.
  3. Add the chopped arugula and turn the heat down to a simmer. Simmer the soup for 5 minutes or until the arugula is completely wilted.
  4. Stir in the hominy and shredded turkey. Remove the soup from the heat and serve it immediately.
  5. Store leftovers in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 5 days. Alternately, store the completely cooled soup in airtight containers, frozen, for up to 3 months.
