Cabbage, an important garden crop in Atlantic Canada, shines in this hearty main course, which is equally effective when made with kielbasa. Caraway seeds not only add their distinctive flavour, but also help to cut the gasses caused by cruciferous veggies.
- Ready In:
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon caraway seed
- 1 large sweet potato, peeled, quartered and cut into 1/2-inch chunks
- 3⁄4 cup onion, coarsely chopped
- 6 cups green cabbage, coarsely shredded, firmly packed
- 1 lb sausage, fully cooked (i.e.knackwurst, kielbasa)
- 1 large firm apple, quartered, cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
- salt and pepper
- In a large deep saucepan or Dutch oven, bring the combined chicken broth, mustard and caraway seeds to boil over high heat.
- Add sweet potato and onion. Reduce heat to medium and cook, covered, for 5 minutes, giving pan an occasional shake.
- Stir in cabbage and sausage. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add apple, season to taste, cover and cook another 3 minutes.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

This made a great dinner and leftovers were perfect for lunch later in the week. I used a chicken sausage and russet potato. I do think I would like to make it again using the sweet potato. I did toss in a red bell pepper for extra color. I loved the combination of flavors and the ease in preparation.
Well, Downeast Maine is pretty darned close to Atlantic Canada, so I guess it's appropriate that I should be the first to post a review! I made this recipe using turkey kielbasa (a healthy but also tasty option) and red onion (what I had on hand). What a nice combination of flavors! Really liked the sweetness of the sweet potato against the tartness of the mustard and the earthy flavor of the carraway seeds. And pretty quick and easy to fix as well. Will definitely make this again, especially since the DH liked it too. Thanks!
