We made a new soup this week. It was yummy and thought I'd share. You could easily substitute Italian sausage for the ground turkey if you don't like turkey. I'm sure it would be just as good.
Turkey Stuffed Cabbage Soup
1 pound ground turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, mashed and minced
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt & pepper
1 bay leaf
3 cups diced tomatoes and the juice
5 cups chicken stock
4 cups sliced and chopped Napa cabbage and 1 shredded carrot
In large pot, heat oil and crumble turkey burgers. Cook until no pink. Remove to a plate. Add more oil and saute onions and garlic until lightly golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stirring as necessary, scraping the bits of cooked burger as you go. Stir in the seasonings, tomatoes, chicken stock, cabbage and cooked turkey. Stir and cover with round pan. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer, stirring occasionally. Simmer for 30 minutes. REMOVE THE BAY LEAF before serving.
Meanwhile, cook rice. Bring 4 cups chicken stock to boil, add 2 cups white rice and stir. Cover with tight fitting lid and reduce heat to light simmer. Cook for 20 minutes. DO NOT OPEN LID. When timer goes off, turn off the eye and allow rice to steam for 5 minutes more. THEN remove the lid and fluff with a fork. It should be soft and cooked through.
To serve, ladel a bowl of soup and top with a red scoop of rice and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
Hope you'll give it a try!
