Kielbasa, Cabbage and Quinoa (w/ Cheese)

In my pantry today:

  • 1.2 head cabbage*
  • 1 turkey polska kielbasa
  • 1/4 c quinoa
  • 2 c vegetable broth*
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp asafoetida
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

So I thought too late to take a photo of the quartered half-cabbage I’ve had in a bag of broth for the last two days. The other half of the quartered cabbage is in the freezer. Both halves, fearing the same natural end of produce’s rightful place, huddled together for salvation two days ago in a crock pot. So there was all this cabbage I’d saved from the trash can and no apparent endgame.

This bag of cabbage was in about 2c of the vegetable broth/garlic paste mixture from its crock pot. I bought a turkey kielbasa and decided upon quinoa to balance everything out. I sliced the kielbasa and let it brown on M in a deep frying pan. Once it began sticking, I poured in 1.5 c of the cabbage broth and the now-chopped cabbage. Add asafoetida, cayenne and just a hint of cinnamon. The other 1/c c of broth use to cook your quinoa. Strain cabbage and sausage out and top with quinoa and Parmesan cheese. 5 spoons!
