Soups and stews are so comforting - especially when you aren't feeling up to par. I have been a little under the weather (a sore throat, sinus pressure, headache and achy all over) since Thursday. Yesterday, I had a bowl of this cabbage-sausage stew -it was so good! The flavors mingle well together. And "IF" you have any left over the next day, the flavors meld even better. I like to eat this in a bowl, with a slice of cornbread (or a corn muffin). Don't forget to scoop up some of the juice into your bowl. Flavorful!

There's nothing better than a hearty stew on a cold day. This easy cabbage and sausage stew is full of delicious flavor. The smoky sausage has a nice contrast of flavor from the mild taste of the cabbage. Tomatoes bring a bit of tartness, while the carrots add sweetness. Garlic and pepper are the perfect seasonings for this sensational stew.
