Paleo Cabbage Soup

*This make a lot of soup so if you are making it just for 1, you might want to half the recipe or be prepared to put some in the freezer for later*

You will need:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
8 cups chicken stock (or 6 cups chicken stock and 2 cups water works too)
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
1/2 to 3/4 head cabbage, cored and coarsely chopped
2 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, drained. (you can dice them if you like them smaller, but I left them big
6-8 large carrots, peeled and then cut into large pieces (2-3″ long)
1 lb ground turkey


In a large stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Stir in onion, carrots and garlic; cook until onion is transparent, about 5 minutes.

Add ground turkey, breaking up with a spatula or wooden spoon. Saute until no longer pink.

Stir in chicken broth, water, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, then stir in cabbage. Simmer until cabbage wilts, about 10 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes. Return to a boil, then simmer 15 to 30 minutes, stirring often.

*I’ve never really been a fan of cabbage and Kyle doesn’t typically like soup, but we both really liked this recipe. One thing to note: Kyle would have preferred for the carrots to have a little more crunch to them. If you prefer crisper carrots then don’t add them in with the onion in the beginning. Wait and add them when you add the tomatoes.*



  1. Place grilled chicken onto a bed of fresh,
    raw, organic spinach and top with the fresh guacomole. This recipe for paleo garlic bread has only
    eight ingredients and takes less than one hour to
    make. In a smaller bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, salt and baking soda.

  3. Thanks Christina. I should probably add one of those pinterest links. I started writing this blog before pinterest existed and I don’t really update it anymore so it never occurred to me. Glad you enjoyed the soup!
