Cabbage and Beans
This is another childhood meal.
My Mom used to make a huge pot.
One big head of cabbage, sliced very thin
2 cans of white beans with the liquid
6 big cloves of chopped garlic
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 big bouillon cubes, chicken or vegetable
3 cups water
Heat the oil and add the garlic
Cook till it is soft
Add the beans with the liquid
Add the cabbage, bouillon, red pepper and water
Bring to a boil and then simmer till the cabbage is soft
Serve with the crusty bread
My Mom, ever so often, would serve this with Italian sausage. That was a real treat.
Good vegetable meal or not , it is very good and worth the fifteen minutes to make.
