Great Northern Bean Stew

Always searching for more bean recipes... I was intrigued when I saw that the recipe called for bulk breakfast sausage and just had to try this nice hearty Great Northern Bean Stew on a snowy Saturday. No doubt this will fill you up, using mostly pantry items, and I have to say it was very good! It might be a little prettier if we go to the work of rolling the sausage into little meatballs-ah, nah... But I say all of the flavors in this rustic stew play well together! If you love beans and cabbage, this recipe is a no brainer folks.
I made half of the recipe but used the whole 15 oz can of beans.
Also chose regular diced tomatoes over petite for some extra bite.
This begs to be served with a bottle of hot sauce and a nice crusty cornbread:@)

Great Northern Bean Stew-from Taste of Home
1 lb bulk/tube breakfast sausage
1 C chopped onion
28 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
15 oz can great northern beans, drained and rinsed-can easily add more
2 C chopped cabbage
1 C sliced carrots-I made thick julienne
1 Tblsp white vinegar
1 Tblsp brown sugar-I added a little more, some times you just need it...
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp hot sauce
2 Tblsp minced fresh parsley-I did not have this
Hot sauce for serving-my suggestion
  1. Brown sausage and onion. Drain fat if necessary.
  2. Add everything except parsley, bring to boil, reduce to simmer and cook approximately 45-60 minutes or until veggies are tender.
  3. Stir in parsley and cook five minutes longer.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  5. Yep, I'm hoping to make this at my little mama's house, Lynn! It looks perfect for a cold, wintry day.

  6. I love using sausage in dishes like this! So much flavor without a lot of effort. I know Bill would love this, too :)

  7. Did I ever tell you the story about how Taste of Home used to be published in our little Wisconsin village? Yup, and we even had a restaurant called Taste of Home! Then Reader's Digest bought all of the magazines published by Reiman :( Good for him, sad for us! This sounds like a perfect dish for this cold weather and will be pinning it to remember!
