Shred’s Xmas Turkey Minestrone

  1. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a large saucepan. Add the bacon and fry over a medium-to-high heat for 4-5 mins or until golden, then set aside.
  2. Put the remaining oil, the onion, carrot, celery and a pinch of salt in the pan. Cook gently over a low heat for 8-10 mins, stirring occasionally, until the veg is soft but not coloured. Add the garlic and herbs, and cook for 2 mins more.
  3. Tip in the celeriac, potato, beans and stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 10-15 mins. Add the cooked turkey, orzo and the bacon, and cook for 10 mins.
  4. Just before serving, tip in the kale, give everything a good stir and return to the heat for about 2 mins or until the kale has wilted.

Cooking time: 55 mins.
