This is a delicious side dish with a vegetable that is readily available at any time of year. When you cook the cabbage this way it caramelizes. Caramelizing brings out the natural sugars in foods so there is a natural sweetness to the dish. Try tossing with cooked linguine and fresh grated parmesan cheese for a delicious vegetarian main dish.
1 small head of cabbage, core removed and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
Salt and pepper
Dried parsley flakes
1) In a large heavy deep pot, add oil and butter and heat over medium heat.
2) Add cabbage all at once. It will seem like a lot of cabbage, don't worry, it really cooks down. Season with a couple of pinches of salt and pepper. Stir often. It will take 20-30 minutes to cook down and get caramelized. Be careful towards the end of cooking as the sugars will burn easily. Garnish with a sprinkle of parsely flakes if you wish. Enjoy!
