I love cabbage! It’s one of my favorite vegetables, not only because of its flavor, but because it boasts the fewest calories and the least fat of any vegetable. It’s so nutritious and a good source of vitamin C, fiber and potassium. Aside from all of that, you can be creative with a cabbage dish – like this recipe for Savoy Cabbage with Sausage.
We have a couple of rainy days coming our way in the Dallas area which always puts me in the mood for comfort food. This recipe hits the spot offering southern comfort. Plus, it only takes about 10 minutes to cook. I pulled the recipe out of a magazine a few years ago and modified it to make it healthier…enjoy!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3/4 pound turkey sausage, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
- 1 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1 small head savoy cabbage, cut into quarters, cored, and sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch wide strips
- Salt to taste (optional – and I sometimes use a little Tony Chachere or Adobo)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
Over medium-high heat, in a large pot or Dutch oven, heat oil. Quickly brown sausage. Add bell pepper, cabbage, salt and pepper. Pour in broth; sprinkle with parsley. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover pot with lid and simmer until cabbage is crisp tender, about 10 minutes (or desired tenderness). Delicious served with warm corn bread.
