This is a GREAT RECIPE!! I used a smoked Turkey leg - it was hard to pull the meat off but I'm glad I did! This was a terrific recipe and the first time I cooked with fennel - yummy!! Read More

This was too sweet. Way, way too sweet. I liked the flavors, but we just never did eat much of it. I gotta say - in our house - food is never thrown out. It was weird. I think that if I try this again, I would use chicken broth instead of the juice and instead of dried cranberries I would use fresh (or the fresh frozen I keep in the fridge.) Like I say - the fennel, cabbage, turkey, cran flavors win - lets just not douse them in so much sugar, all right? Read More

Instead of dried cranberries I used half a bag of frozen cranberries that I had leftover from last Thanksgiving. It was terrific! I'll definitely be making this again! Read More

ABSOLUTELY YUMMY AND TOTALLY VEGANIZABLE!! so I used a half lb of super firm tofu instead of turkey. Everything else is exact... Served with some soy sauce. WOW. I might try this over some thin savory crepes... yep... delicious recipe!! Read More

LOVE this! We served it with biscuits but I think it would be good with noodles maybe with some kind of sour cream sauce. Read More

Good Recipe. Not an all time favorite but good in a pinch and very easy to make. I used real cranberries instead of dried. I do think it is missing something but I can't think of what it would be. I look forward to seeing what other reviewers add to make it their own. Read More

So good! Didn't have a bulb of fennel so I used 5 stalks of celery. Also used fresh cranberries and didn't have the cranberry juice so I used extra broth (homemade turkey broth). The fennel seeds went great with this. I will make this again! Read More

This is a good recipe and easy to veggietize. I added firm tofu instead of the turkey and a bit more broth (because I had more and did not want to waste it) and it was wonderful. The cranberries are really a key part if it. Read More
