    1.5 tbsp olive oil
    9.6 oz lean 93% ground turkey (0.6 lb)
    1 whole onion, chopped (approx 1.1 cup)
    2 celery stalks (approx 85 g)
    2 carrots (approx 87 g)
    1 bunch of scallions (approx 16 g)
    1 large head of cabbage, coarsely chopped
    32 oz box of chicken stock - fat free and 50% less sodium
    40 oz water
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    1 (14.5 oz) can Italian-style stewed tomatoes with juices
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
    1/2 tsp turmeric
    1/2 tsp basil
    1/2 tsp marjoram
    1 cup dry lentils


1) In large stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and onion for 2 minutes. Then add ground turkey to the pan. After a few minutes, add the celery, carrots, and scallions to the stockpot. Cook until veggies translucent, approximately 5 minutes.

2) Stir in water, chicken stock, black pepper, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes (optional), turmeric, basil, and marjoram. Bring to a boil, then stir in the cabbage. Lower heat to a simmer until cabbage wilts, approx 10 minutes.

3) Stir in can of undrained tomatoes. Return to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Add the lentils and let simmer 15-30 minutes, stirring often. The longer it simmers, the more the flavors meld together.

The recipe makes 8 servings, each approx 1.75 cups each.

** Please note that if you're sensitive to spicy foods, you should exclude the red pepper flakes and reduce the cayenne to 1/4 or a few shakes. The recipe is spicy as written above! You can also substitute the Italian style stewed tomatoes for regular diced tomatoes and adjust the seasonings as needed. The above nutritional info captures all the ingredients listed in the recipe. The end result can be eaten as a hearty soup or drained as a nice cabbage side dish. Enjoy!
