Farmers Market Favorite | Good Luck Greens & Sauerkraut with Duck Sausage
Twice a month I have the good fortune to work as Market Chef for the Texas Farmers' Markets, creating and preparing dishes from among the best the market has to offer. In January, it's about good luck in the coming year. Below, find the dish I prepared highlighting market vendors Belle Vie Farm & Kitchen, Blackland Prairie Family Farm, Hat Creek Provisions, and Johnson's Backyard Garden.
Good Luck Greens & Sauerkraut with Duck Sausage
2 bunches scallions, whites and greens sliced thinly
1 bunch mustard greens, stems removed, chopped
½ head red cabbage, shredded (all vegetables provided by Johnson's Backyard Garden)
1 jar Hat Creek Provisions Spicy Sauerkraut
1 package Belle Vie Farm Italian Duck Sausage
Salt and pepper, to taste
Blackland Prairie Family Farm Jalapeno Cornbread
Saute scallions in grapeseed oil until wilted. Add chopped mustard greens and red cabbage, mixing well, and cook, covered, over medium heat until wilted. Add a small amount of sauerkraut brine or water to keep greens from sticking, if necessary.
Drain sauerkraut well, and add to wilted greens, tossing to combine. Nestle sausages into greens, and cook, covered, stirring greens around gently to keep from sticking until sausages are cooked through-- about 10 minutes.
Correct seasonings. Serve over warmed cornbread.
