  2. Peel and grate the carrot and add to the onion.
  3. Chop the cabbage, add a pinch of salt, and squeeze it with your hands to release some juice.
  4. Add the cabbage to the skillet. Next add 1/2 cup of water, bay leaves, salt and pepper.
  5. Cook the vegetables, covered, on medium heat until almost ready (~25 minutes).
  6. Cut the sausages and saute in vegetable oil in another skillet, until a slightly darker color appears.
