A Mouthwatering Dish of Cabbage and Beans
Posted by Kristen on Dec 25, 2011
This is a delightful recipe that some friends shared with us several years ago. It provides a perfect blend of sweet and savory, and pairs beautifully with freshly cooked rice, quiona, or any other grain dish.
Rich in healthy protein and a variety of cancer-fighting phytonutrients, this is one dish that even the pickiest of eaters tend to gobble up.
1 can of cooked pinto beans (or any other variety that you enjoy)
~ For this recipe we used white kidney beans~
1.5 cups tomato sauce
6 cups shredded cabbage (firm green kind works best)
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons of honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 cup raisins (optional)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 large clove of garlic, chopped
1. Place all ingredients except beans in a large saucepan.
2. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add the beans and cook until the beans are warm.
For additional texture, try serving some fresh avocado slices on the side. Any grain dish will work, but we prefer this sweet and sour bean and cabbage dish with freshly cooked rice or quiona. Enjoy!
