This a WONDERFUL RECIPE! I used Hunt's Fireroasted Tomatoes with Garlic for the diced tomatoes, and just realized, that I completely missed the wine or apple juice. But it was still fntastic. Now I have to try it with the wine!! Thanks for sharing. Koechin
Tasty one! Cabbage really shines in this stew, weather you usually like cabbage or not, it is the heart and soul in here.
A very flexible recipe, and even better the next day, and the day after that! Wonderfully rich flavor that blends and improves over time. I substituted a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes for the non-diced tomatoes in the recipe because that was what I had on hand; I also threw in a can of cannelini beans and used garlic sausage instead of kielbasa (though the flavor was very similar). I also used a couple sprigs of fresh thyme instead of dried and added a dash of cayenne pepper. I cooked it over low heat on the stovetop for close to two hours, and served it with Turkish cornbread #16641. Thanks!
I have made this twice now for two different groups of friends and everyone has enjoyed it. I cooked exactly as described, I'm sure you could get different results with another type of sausage. Get a flavourful one. This also freezes great. Thanx
To quote my husband "This is really good. Lots of flavor." (he's doing the thumbs up sign)Had to sub. the apple juice/wine with chicken stock as I didn't have either on hand.
A nice change-of-pace soup. Really enjoyed the kielbasa in it. We found the spices, especially the parsley, a bit strong but that could just be personal opinion. I prepared as directed (using apple juice) except instead of simmering in a pot for 20 minutes, I put it in the crockpot for several hours. This may have intensified the strength of the spices but I'm not sure. Served it with my homemade wheat French bread (#102132) for a satisfying winter meal. Thanks Lorac!!
