It’s definitely starting to feel like soup weather where I’m at so I thought a nice turkey soup recipe would be perfect for today’s Turkey Tuesday recipe. A delicious classic!

1/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup minced onion

1 cup uncooked Egg Noodles (or another type of noodle)
3 cups chopped cooked turkey
3 cups thinly sliced Napa cabbage

Heat oil in a large dutch oven (6-8 quart size) over medium-high heat. Add carrots, celery, onion, and garlic and sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add water, pepper, and broth and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook 8 minutes or until pasta is done. Stir in turkey and cabbage and cook  for 2 minutes or until cabbage wilts.

Asian Turkey Cabbage Cups

I’ve seen different versions of these lettuce and/or cabbage wraps before and always thought they looked interesting but never tried them…well, I’m glad I finally did because they are delicious!

Ingredients

1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 jalapeño pepper, finely chopped  (I leave this out since I don’t like anything spicy)
12 large Napa (Chinese) cabbage leaves (about 8 ounces)
1/4 cup chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts

Directions

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add turkey and ginger to pan and cook until turkey is done, stirring frequently. Drain the turkey mixture and place in a large bowl. Add green onions and next 8 ingredients (through jalapeño) and mix well. Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture into each cabbage leaf. Top with peanuts.
