Here's an old favorite that I cooked up last night. It's a "mom" recipe (except for my own stylings) and I've been doing it for years. This is very high on the comfort food scale. It has only four primary ingredients: two long polish sausage (polska kielbasa, preferably gluten, soy & HFCS free and uncured), a large yellow onion, two cans diced tomatoes (or equivalent of fresh; I like the canned so I can get ones with the spices included, which I vary or mix/match), head of green cabbage. Takes a half hour to make, tops, the advantage of using a pre-cooked meat. Easy, inexpensive, fast, and wonderfully nutritious. [Later: thanks to Jack for emailing. Yes, you add water, but only to about an inch below the chopped cabbage. As water is released from fiber, you'll have plenty. Boil down to desired consistency.]
This time, in addition to salt & lots of black pepper, I did quite a sprinkling of Italian seasoning and herbs de provence. Also, a bit of crushed & dried mint. For the final "secret" touch, a teaspoon of curry powder. Over the years, I have found no end of great uses for curry powder. The secret is to get it just on the edge of being able to say "hey, curry." My favorite unconventional use is in mayo-based tuna or chicken salad.
So, here's dinner.
And, a slotted spoon makes for a great addition to eggs for breakfast. Eat with a spoon and do that yolk good. This was fine, but after I had a small bowl with the broth and decided that breakfast tomorrow will be a bowl of this and bacon. The broth is amazing, and it's primarily the tomatoes that do that.
It's a big pot and I'll probably be digging into it throughout the day today and tomorrow.
