Sausage Soup from Turkey

Zuppa Turca con pomodoro e Salsicciain italiano

You may not believe it but I actually made this soup on a very hot day in June.

But that’s me, I don’t mind at all, I actually need a good hot soup even on summer, I’m so much into hot soups, they make me feel better 🙂 For instance I love my Chickpeas & Carrots soup with chilli croutons and I highly reccomend it to you!

This is my own version of a typical Turkey Soup. It is not the original recipe, it is my adaptation, hope you enjoy it.

It is very hearty, flavoured and definitely to be considered a main dish since it calls for sausages as well.

He comes the recipe…



for 2 people

  • 200g of leeks, chopped
  • 200g of carrots, diced/chopped
  • 200g of courgetts, diced/chopped
  • 200g of chopped tomatoes (canned)
  • 140g of white rice
  • 2 ts of finely chopped parsley
  • 1 potatoes, pealed, diced/chopped
  • 150g of sausages
  • some olive oil
  • salt & pepper



  1. In a saucepan drizzle in the olive oil, 2 tablespoons, then when it is hot, add the chopped sausages.
  2. Cook them stirring every now and them.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Take a pot and pour about 4 glasses of water in it.
  5. Bring to a boil and put all the veggies in.
  6. Cook them for 15 minutes.
  7. Now add a glass of water and the chopped tomatoe sauce, the whole can.
  8. Add the rice and cook it based on the time specified on the box. (it varies)
  9. Water should steam out but the soup will remain rather runny. It is ok.
  10. When it is ready, add the pieces of cooked sausages and stir.
  11. Add salt and pepper.
  12. Serve hot and you can also add some chilli if you like it.


I’m sure you are wondering how could I have had this hearty soup on a sunny day in June, well I did and I really enjoyed it 🙂 😉

Please let me know if you liked it too, maybe in December on a very cold night 🙂
