The first time I prepared this dish was about 4 years ago after receiving Heidi Swanson’s cookbook in the mail “Super Natural Every Day". I followed the directions and ingredient list to the letter. It was simple to make, somewhat hearty and perfect for the cold winter day. As time went on I began making simple changes to this dish depending on what I had on hand and what was available seasonally. As with most of her recipes the ingredients used are mainly whole and natural and many of her recipes can be used as a sort of template or as she states in her introduction as “starting points”.
This time I stir fried the potatoes, removed them from the skillet and then added back the potatoes and the chicken sausage at the end. This step made for a more crispy potato (crouton) atop the beans and cabbage. Also I used savoy cabbage instead of the regular and sliced it a little thicker. You could also swap out kale or chard for the cabbage and add quinoa or farro for even more flavor. Have fun with this dish.
This recipe has been adapted from Heidi Swanson’s book, "Super Natural Every Day".
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 large russet potato (peeled and diced small)
1 clove garlic (minced)
1 - 15 ounce can white beans (rinsed and drained).
1 medium savoy cabbage (sliced 1/4 inch)
1/4 pound chicken sausage (sliced 1/4 inch thin)
Grated Parmesan, for garnish
Preheat oven to warm.
Add canola oil to a large skillet over medium high heat, place diced potatoes in pan and let sit. Saute; stirring every few of minutes, about 8 to 10 total. Remove potatoes from skillet and place in a heat proof dish in the oven on warm until the rest of the dish is done.
Add sausage and cook one to two minutes until lightly browned, remove from the pan, set aside in a separate dish. Now back to the skillet; add the beans and let cook until just browned; about 3 to 4 minutes, add in garlic and stir another minute longer.
Place cabbage in skillet over the beans and with a pair on tongs, gently mix together; cook until wilted. Serve with potatoes and sausage in the center family style. Garnish with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
Cheri Savory Spoon
Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
