  • 3 slices thick-cut bacon — chopped (whole30 complaint)
  • ½ yellow onion — finely chopped
  • 2 large carrots — peeled chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic — minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey Italian sausage — (whole30 compliant)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 32 oz chicken bone broth
  • 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 large head cabbage — thinly sliced


  1. Place the chopped bacon in a large stockpot and heat over medium-high. Cook until bacon begins to soften and sweat, about 2 minutes. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and continue cooking until vegetables have softened but are still al dente, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Scoot the vegetables off to one side of the stockpot and add the turkey Italian sausage, paprika, oregano and sea salt. Allow meat to brown on one side for 2 minutes, then flip it and continue cooking 1 minute more. Add the bone broth and diced tomatoes, cover, and bring soup to a full boil.
  3. Add the cabbage and replace the cover. Cook 40 minutes, stirring occasionally until cabbage has cooked down.
  4. Taste stew for flavor and add sea salt to taste.
