sauerkraut with turkey sausage
(no ratings)
sauerkraut with turkey sausage

This is my version of a sauerkraut recipe from an old cookbook called "Cooking for One is Fun". A little bit goes a long way, and I find it satisfies me for a long time. If you like, you can serve it with a side of boiled baby red potatoes with their skins on. The juice will moisten the potatoes enough so you don't need additional stuff to make them palatable.Submitted by OAKSHAVEN

MAKEOVER: barbara's low sodium dump soup (by OAKSHAVEN)

Had this at work luncheon and really liked it. I drained the vegies and added low sodium broth instead of "dumping" all of the liquid from the cans in. The canned vegies have so much sodium, I figure I saved a lot of it, whether it shows on the "calculations" or not.

This will get better if it sits for awhile, so make it the day before if you are really going to serve that many people at once. If you are cooking for one (as I am) get some freezer bags so you can keep the rest of it for later in the freezer--lots of meals for a long winter.Submitted by OAKSHAVEN

Spring Rolls

This recipe is really easy; it's really more of a process than a recipe. Rice paper wrappers, which are available in the ethnic sections of most larger supermarkets these days, are a great way to wrap your veggies and protein for a quick snack or light lunch.
