I made this simple and delicious side dish to go with dinner tonight. I had my favorite rice and beans recipe which is also easy to make.
Cabbage is one of my best-loved vegetables because it’s cheap, cooks quickly and is delicious. Adding cabbage to soups, stews and casseroles can also give them healthy volume without being heavy.
Having a good amount of vegetables in a meal can be helpful for me in preventing a binge. If I feel full and healthy after a meal I often feel better about myself and this can be helpful in not bingeing afterwards.
Super Simple Sautéed Cabbage
1 small head of savoy or regular cabbage, or 1/2 of a regular sized cabbage
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 chicken flavored bouillon cube
1/3 cup warm water, plus more if needed
Pinch of ground pepper (optional)
Remove any damaged leaves from the cabbage and rinse.
Carefully slice the cabbage into thin slices.
Dissolve the bouillon cube in the warm water.
In a large skillet with a lid, heat on medium heat and add the canola oil. When the pan is warm add the cabbage and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the water (with dissolved bouillon) and mix well into the cabbage. Stir for another 30 seconds. Cover the pan and turn the heat down to low. Let the cabbage steam, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes or until soft but still bright green in color.
Serve with your favorite meal! Add a pinch of ground pepper on top for extra flavor.
