Cabbage is a funny little green veggie that can be hard to figure out how to eat and incorporate into meals. Aside from liking the taste, there’s a lot of positive reasons to eat cabbage. It’s a good source of protein and calcium and is a very good source of dietary fiber and most of the major vitamins. Here is an easy, no hassle way to prepare cabbage that serves as a delicious meal or side dish.
What you need:
1 small cabbage
4-5 artichoke hearts from a can
chili powder (if you like it w a kick)
1 cup of tomato sauce (or stewed tomatoes)
1 cup of water
Rip the leaves of cabbage into smaller pieces and put in a sauce pan with about 1/2 cup of water. Bring the water to a boil and then settle on a simmer. While the cabbage is reducing down sprinkle in some chili powder (I put about a tsp). Once the cabbage is no longer leafy add in the artichoke hearts. Then while the pot is on simmer, pour in the tomato sauce. Add another 1/2 cup of water to the pot. Place a lid on the pot and let sit for about 20 minutes, occasionally stirring. When the cabbag
e and artichoke are done cooking they will be soft and the artichokes will start to fall apart. Drain the liquid from the cabbage (keep a little as “juice”) and you are all done! Serve warm.
