Keto Cabbage & Kielbasa

Cabbage and Kielbasa

****** UPDATED RECIPE 3/13 **********

I knew this Cabbage and Kielbasa recipe was going to be good.  

Seriously, I could just tell.

When hubby walked in with the ingredients, I could already taste it.  This is one of the meals that he enjoys.  We make it different every time though.

So THIS time, we were intentional about flavor, spices, quantities, etc.. so that I could update an older recipe from last year.  

Oh man, did it turn out amazing!  Just like we knew it would!

Keto Cabbage & Keilbasa

Kid approved.  Husband approved.  Mom approved!  

The smell while cooking will make your mouth water in anticipation. 

I made keto buns as a side dish.  Toasted them, slapped a little butter on, and went on my way!

Kitchen Essentials

Wok – if you have a large saucepan, that could work too.  But you definitely need a pan that is big enough to hold everything AND be able to stir.  A wok works great. 

Sharp knife – if you want to make clean cuts in the meat and veggies, a sharp knife will serve you well.  I don’t spend a lot on knives.  I have one or two nice ones and take care of them!

Flavors

We chose to use turmeric and paprika for the majority of the flavoring.

Turmeric – this beautiful, yellow spice has SO many health benefits!

 Turmeric is like the super spice of spices.  The king of the jungle.  The main active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin and that is what we are going to focus on.  Curcumin just happens to be fat soluble, so it is a pretty perfect additional to my fatty keto smoothie.

According to Healthline (see references below):

  1. Curcumin is a natural anti-inflammatory, and in fact, some studies have been done that suggest it is as powerful as some anti-inflammatory drugs.
  2. Curcumin increases the body’s antioxidant capacity. This lovely thing neutralizes those darn free radicals that wreak havoc on our bodies.
  3. Curcumin can lower your risk of heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
  4. Curcumin shows promising benefits against depression. In fact, the result were similar to Prozac.

Paprika – ah paprika!

Paprika is another beautiful spice that I love adding to dishes!

According to Livestrong, Paprika is loaded with Vitamin A and carotenoids!   This is where it gets its color, by the way!  Huge benefit to your eyes! 

And let’s not forget the Vitamin E and iron!

So not only are you eating a delicious meal, you are healthy an incredibly healthy meal!
