Comfort Food, ME News, Vol. 2, Issue 4
Comfort Food Season – anytime the temperature gets below 60 degrees, I believe comfort foods are in order. It’s been as low as 13 below this month, so I’m seeking comfort. Pizza is one of my favorites, but it’s not so nutritionally sound. I recently came up with another way to enjoy the taste of sausage and peppers that is a whole lot healthier. Derived from the wonderful Selin Cabbage Casserole I was served last weekend, I altered the recipe a bit to get my comfort cravings in there. The fresh vegetables let the missing winter nutrients sunshine in, too.
"Sausage" Cabbage Casserole
1 large head of cabbage, chopped into bite size pieces
1 large green pepper, seeded, diced
1/2 small bag of mini carrots, sliced
1/2 package Morningstar Farms Meal Starters “Sausage” Crumblers
2 ten ounce cans Campbell's Tomato Soup, straight from the can as is – do not add water
Crock Pot low, 3.5 - 4.0 hours, or oven 350 degrees, covered, one hour.
Estimated nutritional content per 1 cup serving: remember I’m not a scientist, just want to be one…
100 Calories, 7 grams of protein, 2 grams of fat, plus a decent amount of fiber, vitamins c, k, and a.
PS: Feel free to add an onion or two, and some diced tomatoes, if the mood hits you.
PSS: Just for the record, I also believe comfort foods are in order any time the temperature gets above 60 degrees.
