Looking for a delicious soup recipe? My Hot and Sour Turkey Soup is a favorite in my community on Phase 2 of the Fast Metabolism Diet and among many of my clients on the Fast Metabolism Cleanse!
Phase 2, Cleanse Days 1-4 | Serves 4
Prep time: 20 minutes | Total time: 20 minutes
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons tamari
1 teaspoon grated ginger root
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon powdered stevia
1 tablespoon arrowroot
1 tablespoon cold water
2 cups shredded cooked turkey breast
2 cups sliced cabbage
1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
3 egg whites, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions
- In a large pot, combine the first seven ingredients (broth through stevia). Bring this mixture to a boil.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together the arrowroot and cold water. Slowly stir this into the boiling broth mixture. Cook and stir until the mixture is thick and bubbly, and then cook and stir for 2 minutes more.
- Stir in the turkey, cabbage and red bell pepper. Pour the egg whites slowly into the soup in a steady stream while stirring two or three times to create shreds.
- Remove the soup from the heat, stir in the green onions, and serve.
