Here’s what you’ll need to make WW Cabbage Soup:
You might be wondering if you need all of these ingredients, it might seem like a lot, but in reality we are building flavors and all of these things come together to create a delicious final product.
You’ll need some super lean ground turkey breast, jalapeños, onions, cilantro, chili garlic sauce, egg whites, ginger root, red pepper flakes, low sodium chicken broth, Napa cabbage, matchstick carrots, bell pepper, lime juice, Asian fish sauce, and salt/pepper to taste!
