A Great Snack
Someday I am going to write a "healthy recipe" cookbook. Until that time, I want to share the healthiest and easiest snack I know. Believe it or not...it is just simmered cabbage. You are going to have to trust me on this one. You can use it as a side dish or just cook it up for hungry snacking.
One head of green cabbage
Cut it into large chunks
Place it in a large pan with butter (1-2 oz) and olive oil
Add 1/4 cup of water to keep moist.
Just braise it on the cooktop and put a lid on it and let it simmer.
Give it a stir and in about 15 minutes it is done. Season and enjoy!
Leftovers can be stored and warmed up for a quick snack.
I don't know the calorie count but the only fat is the butter and olive oil. Eat this instead of a full dinner and watch the lbs melt off.
Cabbage is rich in nutrients like iron, folate, calcium, potassium, Vit C, Vit K and all of the B vitamins.
