Sautéed Cabbage With Smoked Sausage

It’s near the end of the month, so my pantry is looking a little bare. I challenged myself to create dinner from what was on hand: half of a cabbage, 2 links of Conecuh smoked sausage, 1 onion, 2 carrots,  and 1 apple. All of these ingredients are things we like and that pair well together individually. The combination really worked. Fennel and celery seeds and a splash of apple cider vinegar added just the right flavor notes. Enjoy!

Sautéed Cabbage With Smoked Sausage
1 onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
2 carrots, chopped
Olive oil
1/4 to 1/2 lb. smoked sausage
1/2 cabbage, thinly sliced
1 apple, cored and thinly sliced
1 tsp. fennel seeds
2 tsp. celery seeds
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper

1. Cook onion and carrots in hot oil 10 minutes. Stir in sausage, and cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until sausage is browned. Stir in cabbage and apple; cook 5 more minutes. Stir in fennel seeds, celery seeds, and vinegar. Cook, stirring regularly, 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper to taste.
