Turkey and Cabbage Soup

turkey and cabbage soupWhen I am unpacking our harvest boxes, I always start thinking right away about what I am going to make with each ingredient. As soon as I saw the cabbage, I immediately thought, “soup!” The head was pretty a pretty good sized one, so I decided to make a big batch. I will probably put some of the leftovers in the freezer for a quick dinner later.

There are probably thousands of recipes for cabbage soup. I looked at several, and decided to just go on my own this time. This has a nice flavor, provided by the fresh rosemary (probably the last from my herb garden) and dried thyme.
