New Recipe: German Kielbasa with Broccoli Slaw and Cabbage



This month’s recipes are all going to be inspired by a different ethnicity. Last week was the Coconut Curry Chicken Stew with an Indian influence, and today’s deliciousness has a German flavor to it.

If you’re in the mood for something hearty and filling, this German Kielbasa with Broccoli Slaw and Cabbage is a unique twist on the usual sausage and sauerkraut. You can buy broccoli slaw (thinly sliced broccoli, carrots, and cabbage) where you buy the bagged salads, so it’s easy to prepare this healthy meal. Then shred some more cabbage and you’ve got your veggies ready to go.

If you can’t find broccoli slaw anywhere in your supermarket, just substitute it with extra cabbage or thinly slice up your own mix of broccoli, carrots, and cabbage.

Kielbasa is just Polish sausage – usually pork – but you can use any kind of bratwurst or other German sausage if you can’t find kielbasa. It doesn’t need to be pork, either – it can be lamb, turkey, chicken, buffalo or whatever.

Remember, when choosing sausages, make sure you buy high quality – preferably pasture raised and/or organic – meat to keep it Paleo friendly and as healthy as can be. You can always search for local meat on
