Fusion Chinese / Polish Stir Fry Pilaf
Serves 5-6 (or 1-2 at various points in time if you plan for leftovers on following days)
1 red cabbage - cut into strips
1 white onion
7-8 carrots - cut into strips
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
6 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon honey
1 cup of cooked sausage - sliced
3 cups of pilaf food mix (or rice or some other grain) of your choice
Step 1- Chop onion into small units. Chop cabbage into strips and peel carrots and cut them into 3 inch-ish strips.
Step 2- Heat 5 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chopped onion and basil and cook for 2-3 minutes. Then add the carrots. Cook for 5 minutes, and then add the cabbage and cook for 10 more minutes or until just a slight bit of vegetable crispness remains.
Step 3- While the vegetables are cooking, make the pilaf, heat the sausage, and prepare the Asian-cuisine-inspired sauce. Cook the pilaf food (or rice or some other grain) according to the directions on the package, and heat the sausage however you heat sausage. For the sauce, mince the garlic, and mix it with the 1 remaining tablespoon of olive oil, the soy sauce, and the honey.
Step 4-When the vegetables are done cooking, remove them from heat and pour the sauce on top of them and mix well. Then, put some vegetables on the pilaf food or grains when they are done cooking.
