Un-Stuffed Cabbage Roll Soup

One thing I’ll give winter credit for is the desire to eat hot soups. Okay, and snowboarding, I think I love it now.

We’ve had some really warm weather in Utah for the last couple weeks. But snow is back on the schedule, perfect timing for some soup. Soups are great too for living the FitLife (more so when we choose a broth based soup) because they’re usually pretty quick to make but they also nourish our bodies. Often, we end up making a large batch which means extra meals in the week.

If you’re a saurkraut fan, use the other half to make some of your own. It’s actually pretty simple. Here’s the recipe I followed.

This cabbage roll soup has a hearty serving of protein and veggies.

With the ground turkey, you get your lean protein. And with the cabbage, tomatoes, and onions, you get quite a bit of veggies. It’s a definite win. If you’re like me and don’t like to cry chopping onions, try the Vidalia chopper. Not only does it make chopping veggies more efficient, but it keeps the tears at bay.


Pin this one for later, you don’t want to miss out on this goodness!
