What You’ll Need
- olive oil

- black pepper
- 8" medium pot
- baking sheet
Preheat oven to 450°F. Drain and rinse white beans. Rinse carrots and quarter lengthwise, then cut crosswise into ¼-inch pieces. Rinse kale and trim and discard long stems, then thinly slice leaves crosswise. Peel onion and cut into small dice. Mince 1 garlic clove; halve remaining clove lengthwise for Step 5.
Sauté carrots and onion
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add carrots and onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until softening, about 5 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired.
Brown turkey and wilt kale
Add spice mix and minced garlic to pot with aromatics, still over medium-high heat. Sauté, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add turkey to pot and cook, breaking up, until meat is browned, about 5 minutes. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Add kale and stir to combine, about 30 seconds more.
Add diced tomatoes and their juices, chicken stock, bay leaf, white beans, and 1½ cups water to pot with turkey and stir to combine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce to medium and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes.
Make mozzarella garlic bread
While soup simmers, slice ciabatta roll open horizontally and arrange cut-side up on a baking sheet. Rub cut sides with halved garlic clove. Lightly drizzle with olive oil, season with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired, and sprinkle over mozzarella. Bake until bread is crusty and cheese is golden, about 5 minutes.
