New Years "Good Luck" Soup

Submitted by: PRINCESSANG0131

Introduction

I found a recipe a year ago and changed it to be a little healthier and this is what I've come up with. This soup is fantastic especially on a cold day outside. You can also add less water and shred the turkey thinner and use as a dip. My Mom's always told me to eat my black eyed peas and cabbage on New Years Day for good luck... This is just an easier way to do it and tastier too! Enjoy. I found a recipe a year ago and changed it to be a little healthier and this is what I've come up with.

  • I made a dish similar to this one with stewed tomatoes which adds more flavor. Add a little hot sauce or salsa, if you like some more heat. Also, turkey sausage and beef broth is very good or Boca soy crumbles and vegetable broth for a vegetarian dish. - 2/2/10
