  • 11 ounce White Cabbage (320g)
  • 10 Baby Potatoes
  • 3 ounce Italian Sausage (90g) - See note 1
  • 1 Large Onion
  • A Handful of Fresh Parsley
  • 1 tsp Salt - See note 2
  • ¼ tsp Black Pepper
  • tsp Caraway Seeds , crushed - See note 3
  • 3 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • Roughly chop the cabbage (you can also shred it). Cut the potatoes and sausages into chunks. Cut the onion into quarters and separate the layers.
  • Transfer everything into a large bowl and add chopped parsley. Season with salt, pepper, caraway seeds and drizzle with olive oil. Toss the salad around several times until all the ingredients are well coated.
  • Transfer the mixture onto 4 large sheets of tin foil. Wrap each pocket well, making sure there is no holes or gaps.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 400°F/200°C for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through.


  1. Use any kind of sausage you like – Polish kielbasa, Spanish chorizo, spicy sausage, smoky, …
  2. The amount of seasoning can be easily adjusted to your liking.
  3. Caraway seeds can be omitted but are recommended. I crush mine with pestle and mortar. You can also use powder instead.
  4. The cabbage will reduce in size quite significantly and will have similar texture to onions.
  5. Make sure to toss the salad around well. If this is not done properly, some veggies will be over-seasoned while others will lack in flavor.
