Sauteed Cabbage + Sausage

One Skillet + 20 minutes = Dinner Done ✔
I’m often amazed how just a few simple fresh ingredients can turn into such a satisfying and delicious meal in minutes.

This skillet meal comes together in under 20 minutes, and all of the ingredients are very interchangeable and customizable to YOUR taste preferences (use whatever veggies you have on hand, it’ll turn out great!)

Do you ever come home at night and think, “What in the world?! Now they want dinner?! I just want to throw everything in a big skillet and call it a day!”


Skillet meals to the rescue! Throw all the things into a big skillet, create something really GOOD, and phew…just ONE pan to clean!

➡️ So is Sausage Healthy?!

Can sausages be included as part of a healthy lifestyle? Absolutely! Especially if you know what to look for:

A very easy rule to follow is to choose sausage with the fewest ingredients, those are usually the healthiest choices.

I always read the ingredients carefully and choose sausage based on that combined with what’s on sale.

It’s a good idea to always check the packaging and look at the sodium content. Ideally, choose the sausage with the lowest amount.

I try to buy chicken or turkey sausages that are mostly the actual chicken or turkey meat, gluten-free, nitrate-free, no added sugar, and no weird stuff in general.

There are actually quite a few good options these days! If you need help be sure to ask your butcher for a recommendation.

🌱Cabbage is a very underrated vegetable in my opinion.

In terms of price per cup, a report by the Department of Agriculture has shown cabbage to be the second most economical cooked vegetable in terms of price per edible cup. Yes! Grab you some.

Many people don’t know what a powerhouse cabbage really is. I’ve been eating it on the regular for the past several years… in soups, roasted, and quick stir-fried like this.

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that increases the production of antioxidant and detoxification enzymes, and stimulates the production of liver cleansing; it actually helps your liver break down toxins so they can be more easily expelled, and it also has diuretic properties that help rid your body of excess liquid, carrying toxins along with it. Vegetables are pretty amazing!

➡️For Meal-Prepping:

Divide your mixture equally into 4 separate air-tight containers.

Cover with lids and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

4 servings


  • 2 Tbsps olive oil, or avocado oil, divided
  • 4 nitrate-free chicken sausage links, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices
  • 4 fresh garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 medium head of cabbage, shredded
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp white wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish
  • fresh lemon wedges


Heat 1 tablespoon of your oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.

Add the sausages and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until nicely browned. Set sausage aside on a plate.

In your same preheated skillet, add the remaining oil and saute the garlic for 1 minute.

Add in the cabbage, paprika, vinegar, sea salt, and pepper and cook for about 8 minutes stirring frequently, or until tender.

Return the sausage and cook for 3-5 minutes more, or until the sausage is heated through.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, and squeezes of fresh lemon, and enjoy!
