I made this cabbage (with spinach) to go along with my St. Patrick's Day meal of Irish stew and soda bread (see previous post). I really liked how it turned out and thought it complemented the stew nicely. Plus, it was a cinch to throw together. And it was buttery.
1/2 head cabbage, thinly knife-shredded
few cups spinach, washed and roughly chopped (optional)
2 - 3 TBSP butter
generous pinch ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
In a hot skillet, steam cabbage in a little water--covered--until tender (about 10 minutes). Remove lid, add spices and butter and spinach if using. Cover again and let sit a few minutes for butter to melt and spinach to wilt. Stir, taste, and add additional salt and pepper if desired. That's it! Serve in a pretty bowl.
P.S. My taste-tester (the adult one) really enjoyed this too!
