Hi, I'm Nancy Olah, and thanks for joining us today at Today, we're gonna make a healthy sausage recipe, and I've chosen to make kielbasa and red cabbage. Now, a standard kielbasa is made with pork. So they're a lot healthier alternatives for you with either turkey kielbasa or a vegetarian kielbasa, which is what I'm gonna be using today. I've sauteed my red onions, and now I'm going to be adding my chopped purple cabbage. Some people call it red cabbage, some people call it purple, but I call it delicious. This is fresh North Carolina mountain cabbage, never get precut cabbage, it's so easy to do your own fresh cabbage pieces. After I've sauteed it for a few minutes, I'm gonna add my fresh carrots. And again, make sure you're buying those carrots with the green tops, because they're a lot healthier for you than the ones that have been sitting in the bag forever. Next, I've got a graded granny smith apple. I'm gonna put all of that in, and that's gonna give just a little bit of sweetness. I'm gonna add a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar to keep my apple from browning. And next, I'm gonna add about a tablespoon of caraway seeds, which is a lovely spice that goes well with corn, with cabbage and kielbasa. I wish you could smell what I'm smelling right now, cause this smells really good. I'm gonna take a quick break from stirring my cabbage and make my sauce. I'm gonna put the corn starch in a small bowl, and add about a half a cup of vegetable stock. Whisk it, and then add a quarter cup of white wine, a quarter cup of brown sugar and some salt and pepper. It doesn't need to be perfectly smooth, but it just needs to be a nice, sweet mixture, that's going to enliven the taste of this cabbage once I get it in the slow cooker. Now that I've sauteed my cabbage, carrots and apple, I'm gonna go ahead and add the contents of the skillet to the crock pot. Then I'm gonna pour on my sauce. Give it a good stir, put the lid on it, and set it on low for about three hours, or about two hours on high, so this is a very flexible recipe. It can be adapted to your needs. After two or three hours, I'm gonna bury my cut kielbasa in my red cabbage mixture, making sure that they're nice and well covered. Keep that heat on low for another two hours, and I'm gonna have the most delicious, stick to the ribs dinner tonight without meat. This is a healthy sausage recipe from Nancy Olah at
