Cabbage, Turkey and Gnocchi Soup

Talk about delicious, filling and easy? We make a cabbage dish in Jamaica at least once a week. If not steamed for a weekend breakfast, it can be found mid week next to corned beef and rice, or freshly shredded on Sundays for a colorful coleslaw.


1 Medium Cabbage
1Lb Ground Turkey 
1/2Lb Frozen or Fresh Gnocchi 
1 Can of any White Beans
1 Medium Onion (chopped)
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
Olive Oil
2 Cans of Chicken Stock
1 1/2 Quarts Water
1 Envelop of Powdered Chicken Bouillion 
1 Cap of Tastefully Simple Seasoned Salt
Crushed Red Pepper


Heat oil in a large deep pan. Sautée onion and garlic and add ground turkey. Season meat with TS Seasoned Salt and cook until meat starts to get brown. Add water, stock, chicken bouillon packet, and beans. Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Add gnocchi and cabbage, and stir. Season with pepper and more salt if needed. Cook for another 12-15 minutes or until the gnocchi rise to the top. Serve up this delicious goodness with your favorite cheese sprinkled on top. I used Swiss and Parmesan cheese and garnished with flat leave parsley!

 Use ground pork or chicken instead of turkey if you are not a fan of turkey.  Also, if you do not have Tastefully Simple Seasonings, you can use a packet of chicken noodle soup to add salt and flavor. You can buy TS products here if you'd like to try some unbelievably tasty products:
