Steamed Sausage and Vegetables

Contributed By: Linda Permar


1 package of frozen mixed vegetables (the ones with broccoli, cauliflower,
and if you want, carrots)
1 large or 2 small yellow squash
Half a large head of cabbage
1 ring of 97% fat free smoked turkey sausage (other fat content levels can
be substituted)
Cavender's Greek Seasoning, regular or salt free (your choice, I prefer
the salt free because it has no MSG)
Steamer basket
Medium sized pot with tight fitting lid


Cut up the cabbage and squash. Place the steamer basket in the pot and
fill to the bottom of the steamer. Open it up to reach the sides. Spread the
cut up cabbage in the basket, add frozen vegetables, then cut up squash. Cut ring of sausage into inch to inch and a half segments. (If you prefer you
can coin the sausage instead, it's up to you) sprinkle a thin (or more if
you want it spicier) Greek seasoning over the top of the sausage layer.
Close the lid, place it on a burner on the stove, and turn it up to a
medium high setting. I cook this for 20 minutes, but you can go shorter times if you like your vegetables less soft.

Helpful Hints:

This is very low fat, all carbs are vegetable carbs instead of grain
it has no measurable sugar content, and you can scale up the sausage if
you are on a high protein diet.
This is one of my top go-to recipes, and a variant of it will be dinner
