Re: Skillet/one pot meal recipes anyone?

This is really easy and yummy. Even my DH, who usually wouldn't touch cabbage, asks me to make it.

Red Cabbage & Chicken Sausage

Heat evoo in skillet over med heat, add a few tbsp sugar and cook until dark brown. Carefully (sugar will be super hot) add 1/2 med diced yellow onion, cook 5-10 minutes until well browned. Add a couple chopped cloves garlic and cook 2 min. Deglaze with a few tbsp red wine vinegar, then add juice of lemon, fresh ground black pepper, and any herbs & spices to taste, and thinly sliced cabbage (I use half a small head of cabbage, but just eye it). Slice 2-4 (depending how much you want) spicy chicken sausages into ” slices and add to skillet, then cover and cook until cabbage is tender.

Re: Skillet/one pot meal recipes anyone?

This is what we had for dinner tonight. Sooooo yummy!

Lentils and Rice

3 - 4 T olive oil
1 large or 2 med onions, sliced thinly
3 cloves garlic, minced (or I grate mine like RR)
salt and pepper
1 T tomato paste
1/4 - 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tsp cumin
5 1/2 C water or chicken broth (I used some of both)
1 C dried lentils
1 C rice
1 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

In dutch oven, heat olive oil and add onions, salt and pepper. Cook onions until slightly golden, then add garlic. Cook a minute or two, then add the tomato paste and crushed red pepper. Cook an additional minute or so, just to allow the tomato paste to lose it's bitterness. Add 1 tsp of the cumin, the water, and lentils. Let cook about 15 minutes, then add the rice. Let simmer 20-30 minutes, until rice is tender. Take off heat, add the remaining 1 tsp cumin and the apple cider vinegar. Yum!!
