I don’t think I am lying when I say I could eat this every day and not get tired of it. I usually have it several times a week, and I love it!
I know there are probably thousands of these types of recipes on the internet, but this particular idea came to me during my recent Trim Healthy Mama Fuel Cycle. I was looking for Deep S meals, and thought I would try a sausage and cabbage skillet. As a last minute idea I added the nutritional yeast, which really gave it a bump in flavor AND added nutrients!
(For Trim Healthy Mamas, make sure you use sausage without cheese if you are using this recipe as a Deep S meal. If you use sausage with cheese, it works great for a regular S fuel.)
If you have never heard of Nutritional Yeast, you need to try it!
According to this article on Nutritional Yeast, Nutritional Yeast has the following benefits:
- Preserves Immune Function
- Holds Antiviral and Antibacterial Properties
- Improves Digestion
- Is high in B-Complex Vitamins
- Only one teaspoon gives you 50 to 100 percent of your daily value for all B vitamins! (and in this recipe you are consuming more than 1 teaspoon)
If you have never tasted Nutritional Yeast, you do not need to be afraid to try it! It has a deliciously cheesy and nutty flavor. It can be found at most health food stores, or you can order Nutritional Yeast on Amazon.
Another thing I love about this recipe is how FAST it is! You can literally have it finished in less than 15 minutes - depending on how long it takes to cut up your cabbage. Sometimes I add other vegetables to it to add bulk. I have added asparagus and onions, but you could even add green beans or mushrooms!
If you are dairy free, you can replace the butter with refined (no flavor) coconut oil for a great dairy free meal.
So, what do you need for this Cheesy Sausage and Cabbage Skillet?
