Jenny Craig Recipe Creation: Cabbage-Turkey Soup


Special thanks to Jenny Craig for their sponsorship of this post.

Today was the first day in Colorado where I thought… fall is definitely here.  All the trees are changing, there’s brown leaves on the ground, and I feel like we are days before our first snow.

This afternoon was especially windy and just seemed like the best day for soup.  I’ve had a cabbage soup on my mind for weeks, and today… it happened.

There’s nothing like a veggie-heavy soup to warm up your day.  I added chopped cabbage, diced onion, and some canned tomatoes to the pot to make this hearty soup.  As for the leftover Turkey Burger bun, I made it into some garlic bread and devoured it while the soup was simmering.  Assuming you can exercise more restraint than me, enjoy it side-by-side with your cozy bowl of soup.

I love cabbage soup, especially on a cool fall day. This Jenny Craig version is incredibly filling and the perfect pairing as the days get shorter.


  • 1 Jenny Craig Turkey Burger
  • 2 Tbsp. sweet onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • cup chicken broth, reduced sodium
  • cup cabbage, chopped
  • ½ cup diced tomatoes, canned
  • cooking spray
  • salt and pepper
  • fresh parsley, minced – for garnish


  • Cook the turkey burger patty on a microwave safe plate for 2 minutes. Set aside.

  • Saute onion and garlic in a sauce pan at medium heat, prepared with cooking spray. Stir frequently and cook for about 2 minutes until onion becomes tender.

  • Quarter your burger and place in a food processor to pulverize into a ground meat texture. Add to the sauce pan. Add salt and pepper.

  • Add broth, cabbage, and tomatoes to the pan and bring to a light simmer. Reduce heat to low, and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes until the cabbage becomes tender.

  • Remove from heat and to a medium bowl. Top with fresh parsley, for garnish.
