Sauerkraut and Sausage

This is a delicious recipe that the whole family loved but is on the pricier side, especially with a higher end jar of $7 sauerkraut (which was well worth it for those like me who don’t love all kinds of sauerkraut). Serves 4

1 package of 4 Field Roast Apple Sage Sausages

1 T coconut oil

2 c Bubbies sauerkraut (about 2/3 of a jar)

2 green apples, diced

6 c cooked brown rice

Optional: white beans

My new favorite way to cook rice is to combine the rice and water over medium high heat and after boiling for a couple of minutes (longer if the rest of the meal will come together quickly), turning the heat off and leaving the pot covered until the rest of the meal is ready.

Remove the sausage from the casing and slice into coins and then half-moons. Saute  the sausage with coconut oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Dice the apples and heat in a small saucepan or microwave with the sauerkraut until the apples are softened.  Alternatively, you can saute the apples with the sausage.

Divide the rice among 4 bowls, then add the sausage, apples, and sauerkraut.
