  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey; cook and stir until the turkey has crumbled and begun to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the onion and green pepper, and continue cooking until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in the chicken broth, and add the tarragon, carrots, and red potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until the potatoes soften, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stir in barley. Continue simmering until the barley is tender, about 15 minutes.

Most recipes I find on this site need modified slightly. Not this one. It is perfect as is. Kids loved it. Husband loved it. In our family, that is a true Christmas miracle!!

This was okay, but we thought it needed a lot more flavor. I had to add another 4 cups of broth as it was cooking especially after I added the barley, it just absorbed all the liquid. I didn't h...

Just so-so. I love tarragon so I thought it would be really tasty. Probably won't make this again.

This was really good, and I have been hoping to find a unique recipe for ground turkey. We really enjoyed this soup. We didn't modify it much, we used 1/4c regular barley and 1/2c orzo (my husba...
