Turkey Sausage and Cabbage Soup Recipe

Day 2 of Turkey Sausage and Cabbage Soup

Perhaps what I love most about this recipe is it is tasty and very good for you.  I whipped this up today before heading outside to enjoy the spring day.  It was nice to return indoors to a fragrant house and warm meal.  All of the ingredients used for this soup I keep on hand in my pantry most of the year.  Turkey Sausage is one of the best priced and easy to find meats right now at my grocery stores.  I throw a few of the bulk packages in my freezer so I can enjoy it anytime.

what you will need:

  • Turkey Sausage
  • Olive Oil
  • Sweet Onion
  • Garlic
  • Carrots
  • Green Cabbage
  • celery
  • Spices (Salt, Pepper, Crushed Red Pepper Flakes)
  • Canned Diced Tomatoes
  • Cannellini Beans
  • Chicken Stock

My son loves things on the spicy side so I added a fresh jalapeno diced.  I grow jalapeno pretty much year-round so this is a great addition.

Turkey Sausage Cabbage Soup Recipe

Recipe by Bren HaasCourse: SoupCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy


Prep time


Cooking time




  • 1 pound of ground turkey sausage

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1/2 cup of sweet onion  (diced)

  • 2 teaspoons of garlic (minced)

  • 1/2 cup carrot (shredded) 

  • 1 1/2 cups of diced cabbage

  • 1/3 cup celery (diced) 

  • salt and pepper (optional)

  • 12 ounce can of diced tomatoes

  • 4-5 cups of chicken stock

  • parsley and parmesan cheese topping


  • In a stock pot brown the ground turkey sausage.  If needed, add water to prevent from going dry while cooking. Turkey sausage should be cooked to 165*F .

  • Once meat is cooked, move to the side to sauté onions.  

  • Move meat aside and heat up olive oil to sauté onions.  If there is 'grease' in the pot just use that instead of olive oil to sauté onion. 

  • Add celery and garlic to the saute mixing well.  Cook an additional minute before adding the remaining ingredients.

  • Slowly pour in chicken stock.  I use 4-5 cups of water and chicken bouillon. 

  • Cook the soup for about 10 minutes at a high boil.  Be sure to stir so the ingredients do not stick to the bottom of the pan.  Add additional water if needed. 

  • Let soup slowly simmer for about 20 minutes or unti lthe carrots and cabbage are soft.. 

  • The soup can be left in the slow cooker on low all day and enjoyed with ready for a meal. 

  • Garnish soup with parsley and parmesan cheese if desired. 

  • Sourdough bread goes great with this recipe.
