E-I-E-I-O


Old MacDonald had a farm. 

And I visited his market yesterday.  The Bryan Park Farmer’s Market.

I got a few goods, 🙂

which I turned into a rather tasty dinner.

Sautéed cabbage, lentils, and a toasted sandwich round topped with Earth Balance “butter.” 

The cabbage was the very first thing I noticed as I walked up to the vegetable stand.  I have never made cabbage before, so this was unusual for me.  As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. 

Maybe this is what they mean by intuitive eating.

This dinner definitely made me happy. 

To sauté the cabbage, I sprayed a large pan with olive oil spray and heated it over medium.  I sliced the cabbage into tiny sliver pieces and chopped 3 carrots into matchstick sized pieces.  I added the carrots first, because I knew they would take longer to cook.  I then added the cabbage and cooked until it was slightly caramelized.

Delish!

Larry, who hates cabbage, said it was the best cabbage he’s ever had.  I think that’s a compliment.  😉

There was something about eating a cabbage that was pulled from the ground yesterday that made this meal extra spectacular. 

Tonight we’re having sautéed kale and mung beans (yes, I said mung!).  Larry is having reduced fat kielbasa and I’m having Tofurkey vegan kielbasa.   We may also be having not-so-very-healthy Jiffy Corn Bread 😉

Have a great night! :) 

Peace!

  2. I’ve never cooked with cabbage before, but you’ve inspired me to try! 🙂
