DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and cut cabbage head.
  • I usually quarter, then cut in half again.
  • Be sure core is removed and discarded.
  • In large pot, sautee garlic in hot olive oil until tender.
  • Add cabbage, chicken broth, salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Immediately reduce to a simmer and cover.
  • After about 45 minutes, add beans, then re-cover pot.
  • Cook until everything is heated and tender throughout and all flavors have blended.
  • You can add hot pepper flakes when serving, if desired.
  • We also like to drizzle a bit of fine quality olive oil on the top of our bowls before eating.
  • Enjoy with good crusty bread and you have yourself a healthy meal!
