Delightful Cabbage

Organic Cabbage

When was the last time you had some “home cooked” cabbage? Do you hate to smell cabbage cooking? The organic variety doesn’t smell at all. Matter of fact you can’t tell you are cooking it unless you look in the pot and see it. This cabbage tastes like it has meat in it, but it doesn’t. This is the recipe that I use for ALL of my leafy veggies, Turnip, Kale, Mustard etc. In that way when it’s time to cook you already know what is going in the pot without trying to figure out or use different recipes. You will get a rhythm, and it won’t be a chore. Of course, there is always tweaking that can be done if you so desire. :-)

Preparation time: approx. 15-20 mins

Cooking time: 40-45 mins.

 

Ingredients:

2 medium heads of Organic cabbage (coarsely chopped, and washed)

2 garlic cloves

3 tbs of Extra Virgin Olive oil (evoo)

¼   tsp of Kosher salt

Cracked Black pepper

½ tsp of liquid smoke

1 ½ tsp of Worcestershire sauce

Mrs. Dash (table blend)

½ tsp of sesame seed oil

Red pepper flakes

1-2 cups of organic Chicken broth

1 tsp of Balsamic vinegar

Organic veggie pepper seasoning

2 tbs butter (not margarine) omit butter if cooking other greens and use EVOO

¼ tsp of stevia

 

Directions:

Heat a large pot on the stove on medium, and add oil and garlic and stir. Add cabbage immediately. (you don’t want the garlic to burn) Stir cabbage until you can see garlic pieces. Then add the lid to the pot to allow the cabbage to wilt for 3 minutes. Remove the lid, stir and replace. Allow to wilt for another 3 minutes. Now add your Kosher salt and stir. After stirring, add black pepper and stir. Now add your organic chicken broth, making sure it only covers halfway. (Because cabbage head varieties in size, you would need to eyeball it) Now add liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, Mrs. Dash, and sesame seed oil and stir. Next, add a very small pinch of red pepper flakes and stir. Then add Balsamic vinegar, organic veggie pepper seasoning, and butter. Stir until the butter has melted. Finally add your stevia and stir. (I also add a dash of “lite” salt) Place the lid and reduce heat to simmer for 40-45 mins. Stir halfway during simmering time. You can cook it longer or shorter than that, depending on how you like the texture of your cabbage. Enjoy!
