Hello! It's been a long time since I updated this blog. We had some camera problems (lack of one) that left us unable to document any of our tasty meals. However, we got a new camera, and not just a cellphone camera! A real awesome, knock your socks off kinda camera! We're still learning how to use it, and we clearly need to work on our lighting (difficult when limited to fluorescent kitchen lights) and our platting. I think you'll notice though that these pictures are far superior to previous ones. Now that I have a new camera I hope to update the blog at least once a week so prepare yourself for some tasty times!
Lately Steve and I have been looking for good healthy recipes that require minimal effort at least during the week. We got lucky at our local library and stumbled upon Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express. All the recipes in this book take 20 minutes to make which is helpful on those hectic nights. We've found some really good recipes so far in the book and this is one of them. I'm pretty sure we'll probably be making it again sometime.
Braised Cabbage with Spanish Chorizo and Beans
- Smoked Chorizo
- Olive Oil
- Head of Green Cabbage
- 2 Cans Cannellini or other White Beans
So first thing first, slice the chorizo into 1/4 inch pieces and throw them in a pan with olive oil until the meat begins to crisp.
While the meat is cooking cut up your cabbage into wedges.
Add the cabbage to the pot then get
your beans ready by draining and rinsing them.
Add your beans to the pot, cover and let cook for 5ish minutes or until everything is warmed through.
That's it! Simple, easy, and good.
