Chock-full of ground turkey, cabbage, carrots and tomatoes, this speedy stew delivers delicious down-home comfort on cool days. If you don't like cabbage, replace it with chopped green peppers. Simply saute the peppers with the turkey, onion and garlic.—Susan Lasken, Woodland Hills, California

"This is the first time I made this soup and it has an unbelievable taste. I added chicken Broth instead of water and used Rotel tomatoes for a "spicy kick". The soup is delicious and I am glad I doubled the recipe. I will freeze the soup and use it as needed. Prep time was quick and easy to make. healthy and light!"

"Great soup in thirty minutes! Choose this recipe because closely resembled Dr. Oz's healthy turkey cabbage soup. It was great. Easy to make. Like others, replaced water with broth. You will be happy it makes a lot!"

"This was delicious. I made even quicker, using bag angel hair cabbage and left over turkery from T-giving and left over cooked chicken, which I added at the end to just heat the meat through. Will make again"
