Hominy, an unexpected change from pasta, cuts cooking time in half. Prep tips: For speediest prep, use canned olives, prewashed bagged spinach, and frozen, diced onions. Add flavor to the basic broth, if you like, with fresh lemongrass or herbs. Serving tip: Make it a meal with warm, whole-grain bread and a salad of mixed greens tossed with olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

  1. Heat oil in a large, heavy pot; add onion, garlic, celery, and carrots, and sauté until vegetables are barely tender, 4–5 minutes. Add broth, turkey, hominy, and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 5 minutes. Stir in olives and spinach, cooking for 1 minute, or until spinach is just wilted. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve, sprinkled with grated cheese.
