I’m a big fan of putting a little Greek flavor into my recipes. These Greek Crescent Rolls are a must-make appetizer.

This Greek Crockpot Breakfast Casserole is one of the most popular recipes on the blog! And this Greek Quinoa Salad is one of my favorite recipes for meal-prepping for lunch throughout the week!

Greek food is a type of Mediterranean cuisine and therefore focuses on fresh vegetables, olive oil, pasta and herbs. You’ll find lemon juice, oregano, onions and tomatoes in most greek dishes, including this Greek Turkey Soup!

A serving of this soup is only 461 calories and packs in 44 grams of protein! And one serving can easily be eaten as a meal.

This soup is delicious reheated. Toss it in the crockpot on Sunday or Monday, then eat it throughout the week for a healthy, delicious meal!

How to Make Turkey Soup in a Crock Pot

Sauté onion and garlic in olive oil on the stove over medium heat. Add ground turkey and cook through, then transfer to a slow cooker. Add chickpeas, sun dried tomatoes, capers and spinach to the slow cooker.

Pour chicken broth or chicken stock into the slow cooker, then add lemon zest, lemon juice, dried oregano salt and pepper.

Slow cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.

I used my new Calphalon Sauté Slow Cooker to make this recipe. It’s so cool! The cooking pot can actually be used on the stove.

I was able to cook the onion, garlic and ground turkey in the pot on the stove. I then transferred the pot straight to the slow cooker to add the other ingredients. Less dishes = happy Whitney!
