Russian Cabbage Soup

Several weeks ago, Elena at Eat Cake and Lose Weight posted this yummy sounding recipe for Russian Meat and Cabbage Pie.  I love cabbage and I love turkey and I love anything in a pie shell, so I definitely want to try this recipe.  However, when she posted it, I was really looking for a soup recipe to try, so I decided to turn it into a soup.  I was really happy with how it turned out.  I took out the egg and pie shell (obviously) and added chicken stock.  It made a lot of soup, which I love because I can freeze it and I don’t have to think about soup for awhile.  I think when I make it again I will try adding some more herbs (oregano and bay and sage come to mind) and chicken bouillon to bump up the flavor a bit since the addition of the stock kind of waters the flavors down a bit.  Also, I may try smoked sausage.  I’m in love with smoked sausage right now and I think it would go well with the cabbage.  And the addition of yummy croutons on top would not be a bad thing either!  :)

Yield: 8 Cups

1 pound Lean Ground Turkey
1 head Cabbage, finely chopped
1 Sweet Onion, finely chopped
4 cups Chicken Stock
6 ounces No-Sodium Added Tomato Sauce

Thoroughly brown turkey meat.  Add the cabbage and onion in small bunches at a time in order to fit everything in the pot.  Cook until everything is soft - about 15-20 minutes

Add chicken stock and tomato sauce.  Bring to boil and then turn down to simmer for about 20 more min until all flavors have combined.

Add dollop of greek yogurt right before serving if desired.
