The coarse, almost crunchy, feel of this Scottish whole-grain mustard is the perfect highlight for this peasantlike dish.
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)
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup whole-grain mustard (such as Arran Whole Seed Herb Mustard)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can cannellini beans, drained
Thyme sprigs (optional)
How to Make It
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. Garnish with thyme sprigs, if desired.
I really like this dish, although I see it more as a family night recipe than something I'd serve to company. The fennel and coriander really give the cabbage a different twist. I do think it could use more mustard. Served it with Aidells chicken and apple sausages, which really went well with the seasonings. Really a meal all to itself, although some crusty bread is nice with it.
