  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 14 ounce package Polska Kielbasa chopped into large chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 small green cabbage chopped
  • 2 cups cooked white rice
  • 2 cups cooked Yellow Eye Beans or bean of choice


  • Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the oil with the onion and stir. Cook the onion for approximately 7-9 minutes, or until onion is cooked and just starting to caramelize. Stir frequently.
  • Add the garlic, salt, and Italian seasoning to the onions and stir to combine. Add the Kielbasa to the skillet. Cook the Kielbasa on each side (approximately 3 minutes), or until heated through. Stir the onions frequently, adding 1-2 tablespoons of water to the skillet as needed.
  • Stir in the chopped bell peppers and green cabbage and stir to combine. Cover the skillet and reduce heat to medium. Cook, covered, for approximately 3 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir well. Cook until vegetables reach desired doneness.
  • In a separate bowl, stir to combine the cooked rice and beans, set aside.
  • For the Meal Prep Bowls:
  • Using reusable containers with tight-fitting lids, place approximately 1/2-1 cup of the rice and bean mixture followed by a large chunk of kielbasa, peppers, and onion and purple sauerkraut. Repeat this step until the desired number of containers have been filled (this recipe makes enough for 5 meal prep bowls).
