Fall is here and I love nothing more than the cool weather outside and a warm bowl of soup inside! I’ve told you before about my favorite soup, Chorizo Chicken soup. If you haven’t made it yet, do it! It’s so good! Being that I am on Weight Watchers, I wanted to make a soup I can enjoy, but that was not very many points. I threw a bunch of veggies together with extra lean ground turkey and made the most delicious turkey cabbage soup.

- 16 oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast brown
- 10 oz Rotel Tomatoes, with Habaneros
- 29 oz Diced Tomatoes

Place your extra virgin olive oil in your frying pan and brown the extra lean ground turkey breast.

Cut up all of your vegetables and place those in the stock pot.
Add your seasonings and pour the chicken broth over top of all of the ingredients. Next add your 2 cups of water. If the vegetables are not completely covered, it's OK!
Cook on medium high and bring your soup to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 2.5 hours, or until the cabbage and celery are nice and tender.
This turkey cabbage soup is absolutely delicious! I’ve made cabbage soup before, but this is the first time I thought to add the cajun seasoning. It was a great decision. The cajun seasoning will forever be added to my cabbage soup! The nice thing about cabbage soup is that you can change up the vegetables to your liking. The only reason I added the yellow zucchini squash is because I felt the soup needed another color! Things like green beans, green pepper, etc would also be good to add to your soup! You really cannot go wrong! If you prefer beef broth over chicken broth…use it!
The fact that this turkey cabbage soup is zero points on Weight Watchers is the icing on the cake! I read once that our body burns more calories digesting cabbage than there are in cabbage. How great is that? It’s like you’re working out while you eat your soup! If you are interested in learning more about Weight Watchers, check out how my first week went! Signing up is easy.
