My Meatless Mondays - Cabbage and Mushrooms

I know that many of you don't appreciate the taste of cabbage but I consider it comfort food when it is warmed up.  I don't feel this way about cole slaw although I do like that salad.

I make cabbage and noodles which is scrumptious so it did not surprise me when I made this dish.  I basically added onions and mushrooms to make the dish and it made for a wonderful side dish.


Cabbage and Mushrooms


1 large yellow onion, sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup reduced-sodium vegetable broth
3 cups thinly sliced cabbage
1 cup sliced mushrooms


Heat oil in a 12-inch  skillet over medium heat.

Add onion and mushromms to the skillet. Season with black pepper and add 1/4 cup broth . Cook for 5 minutes.

Add cabbage and the remaining 1/4 cup broth and simmer until tender, about 10 minutes.

This is not a pretty dish but it is tasteful.  To add color, cook orange or yellow pepper along with onion and mushrooms. 

Let's take a peek at a few items from last week.
