6 smoked turkey and duck sausages (such as Gerhard's) or turkey kielbasa, halved lengthwise (about 1 1/4 pounds)
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 garlic cloves, minced
5 cups thinly sliced green cabbage (about 1 1/2 pounds)

Cook sausages in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat about 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

Add onion to skillet, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add the fennel seeds, coriander, and garlic; sauté 2 minutes. Add cabbage; cook 6 minutes or until tender. Add broth and mustard; cover and cook 10 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Stir in the chopped thyme, salt, and beans; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
