That's right, I'm writing about cabbage. It's an approved vegetable for Ideal Protein but other than coleslaw, sauerkraut, or boiling it for hours on St. Patrick's Day, I can't say it's a regular vegetable in my house, especially with three kids.
I was discussing cabbage with a friend of mine around St. Patrick's Day. I had half of a head leftover because I'm the only one who eats is when it's boiled.
She looked at me and said, quite simply, "Sauté it. My kids love it that way."
Who would have thought?!
Two months later, I have finally gotten around to trying it, and let's just say there's a new veggie in the house! It's so easy and truly one of those recipes where a little olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme goes a long way. So... if you're looking to mix it up a bit with the veggies, here's a new way to make cabbage.
1/4 of a head of cabbage
Cooking spray for a non-stick pan
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
Your favorite dried herb seasoning
|Sauté with a little olive oil and salt and pepper|
Slice the cabbage.
Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray.
When pan is hot, add cabbage and drizzle with additional olive oil.
Add salt, pepper and seasonings and cook until browned and a little wilted.
Serve as a side to any meal.
If you have leftovers, they are great on a salad.
You can also add some sliced leeks and sauté those at the same time.
