Meatless Monday: White Beans & Cabbage

I know, I know, this sounds sort of “austere.” You’ve got to trust me on this one.

My neighbor, Aileen, gave me this head of cabbage and I was wondering how much SLAW my family can eat. But I also had a few potatoes and this can of beans. I knew there were a few really simple recipes in my fave cookbook. Sure enough!

Honestly, I was really bored with this recipe thinking about how unappealing it was How surprised I was to keep eating & eating this! This is yummy!! This is filling!!! This is nutritious!!! Best of all this is easy to make & tasty the next day too!!

All you need:

INGREDIENTS:
2 TBSP olive oil
4 oz potatoes, scrubbed, unpeeled & cubed
salt
1 large shallot, sliced finely
1-15oz can white beans (or chick peas if that’s all you have!)
3 c finely shredded green cabbage
grated parmesan cheese

Don’t be fooled by how simple this is, it’s still sooooo satisfying yet you won’t have the sick gluttonous feeling you can get after a heavy meal. And perfect to take to work…

1. Heat olive oil on medium high in a large skillet. Add the potatoes & a pinch of salt.


Cook until potatoes are brown taking care to toss or turn potatoes every few minutes. This should take about 8 minutes.

2. Add the shallots & beans. Brown the beans, being sure to scrape & combine the browned bits every few minutes.

3. Once beans are somewhat browned, add the cabbage. Don’t be alarmed by the volume of the cabbage – it will reduce as it cooks down. Stir to coat with the oil and browned bits as that’s the tasty stuff!

Salt & pepper to taste!

4. Serve with sprinkled parmesan to taste.
