Black Bean & Cabbage over Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kathy228

This can be a hearty side dish or a meatless main course with a green salad and chunks of rye bread. Regular butter can be used with the same result.

I loved this recipe. I changed the ghee to one tablespoon of canola oil as ghee (which I like) contains more saturated fat. Instead of a fresh tomato I used canned diced tomato -- not the whole can of course -- I will definitely make this recipe again. Thank you.
