1 lb ground pork sausage (I used Jimmy Dean all natural)
1 medium onion chopped
1 small head green cabbage cored and coarsely chopped
3 large cloves garlic minced
1 (14.5 ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes
8 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning (more or less depending on taste)
1/4 cup tomato paste
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 cup uncooked long grain white rice
In large pot or dutch oven brown sausage over medium heat. When almost fully browned add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add cabbage and cook until soft; approximately 15 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add fire roasted tomatoes, chicken broth, Cajun seasoning, tomato paste, brown sugar and rice.
Bring to a low boil. Turn down to simmer and cook about 30 minutes or until rice is tender.
