The lastest comfort food in the Wooleybooger household is Cabbage with onions, sausage, and tomatoes served on a bed of quinoa or you could use rice. And to gild the lily if you have a lot of leftover pinto beans or extra cans of pintos put the cabbage/sausage/quinoa dish on top of beans.

1 head cabbage coarsely shredded-wide strips
1 med. to large onion coarsely diced
1 12/14 oz rope your favorite sausage cut to bite size, more if you want it
1 12/14 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups cooked quinoa (1 cup dry)

Pintos if you want/have them.

Cook the quinoa in twice as much liquid and set aside
Chop cabbage, sausage and onion. Put in large pot, cook until wilted add tomatoes. When you like the doneness add the quinoa or serve quinoa and beans if using on the side.

Interesting. I have long enjoyed sausage, onions, tomatoes, and potatoes, plus whatever is available and I do like cabbage. But Quinoa is new to me so I did a search. Looks like it will fit my limited food routine as rice and potatoes should be avoided. I do have a well stocked natural food store and certain they will have it.

I'll pick some up (and some cabbage) and play.

Thanks.

:vs_cool: I love quinoa Bud but it can be expensive in grocery stores and probably health food stores. Check out this WM link.

https://www.walmart.com/c/kp/whole-grain-quinoa

Calculate the per oz. price on that stuff.

I buy it off Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Healthworks-...1?keywords=quinoa+5+lb.&qid=1582464135&sr=8-1

$0.18/oz. in that link, best price I've found anywhere. Last purchase I bought 10 lbs.

Be patient and very careful of the prices where you buy.

I'll pick up a small package locally to be sure I like it and if so I'll have the wife order through Amazon, she likes being the buyer.

Thanks,
Bud

Also try cooking it with apple juice instead of water.

Busted. :biggrin2: Adaptation is it. I found the cabbage, sausage, tomato thing on the internet with rice or quinoa suggested to go with it. All piled together with the beans is my contribution to it.

What is comfort food? Is it hot or is it cold, or is it everything. :smile:

Last night I didn’t feel like cooking (which is rare for me)
So, I looked in the freezer and took out a pound of shrimp.
...looked in the veggie bin and had what I needed to
make a scrambled shrimp bowl...

shredded lettuce
shredded cabbage
shredded carrot
finely chopped celery
chopped scallions
a bit of leaf spinach
a handful of edamame
then made a dressing with olive oil, little bit of
sesame oil, soy sauce, chopped pickled ginger,
and garlic powder.

sautéd the shrimp with a bit of olive oil and garlic salt and pepper.
after tossing the dressing in the salad, I topped it with
the warm shrimp...served it with a bowl of Japanese rice
and sakai of course! I made enough for the next days lunch,
however, the head guy decided to eat his lunch with a second and
third helping!
I think he found the ‘evening before’ lunch, very comforting. :smile:

My goodness, what would you have fixed if you felt like cooking ??
That's some list and I'm with head knot and would have finished it as well.

It was a compliment.


If any of us thinks we are going to invent a recipe that is completely new we are kidding ourselves.

@Two Knots, have you tried Vietnamese food? I don't mean Pho so much as their grilled meat on rice vermicelli with a unique salad underneath? I didn't go for years after I tried Pho, but recently discovered the above.


Comfort food for me is Ben & Jerry's New York Super Fudge Chunk ice cream. No cooking and lots of calories!

@wooleybooger - have you tried Rotel's tomatoes and diced green chilies? I think it was Brainbucket that suggested it in a recipe. I've been using it since. Plus, it's very inexpensive.


I used to make fresh tomato salsa every night to go with dinner, but this is pretty good when you don't want to cut everything up.



Broiled chicken breast, fresh tomato salsa and poi is really good, but I don't expect most to try it. Healthy, too.:wink2:

Yes, I've used it in Velveeta cheese as a dip and put it in pinto beans. Around here it isn't cheap, almost $1/can. I've bought Aldi's version and it is good also but my 2 nearest Aldi's don't have it any more.

Yes I read that sentence as Poi. I haven't had Poi since being in Hawaii. I found some once at a grocery store, wasn't good. I can get various starchy roots, Malanga, yam, something else I don't remember, and taro actually I'll have to check. Easy enough to make. Cook the taro, pound in a mortar, and water until smooth and sticky.

Wooly, true. It depends what our bodies are used to. I usually get 20-25g of fiber daily. I like the frozen meals with Quinoa for lunch. I do best getting potassium in summer when I eat a lot of watermelon.

I ate frozen poi, heated. Imo, it's better if slightly sour after a day or so. Chicken, salsa and poi, um, um. When I first started living in Hawaii, I remember patients telling me to make their poi one-finger or two-finger. I had no idea what they meant. :smile:
