Steamed Cabbage

Submitted by: BUNNYTOFU

Introduction

Steamed cabbage makes a great side dish while being so simple a drunken ferret could probably make it. Steaming makes the normally unapproachable cabbage buttery soft and tender, without adding any oil or extra calories.

Ingredients

    1 head cabbage, cut into wedges
    1/2 white onion, sliced
    1 tsp dried rosemary (or other herbs)

Directions

1) Prep your steamer. If you're doing it on the stove, get your water boiling, or if using an electric steamer, set up and fill with water.

2) Chop your ingredients. Cut your onion into thin slices. Remove the core from your cabbage, and cut into whatever size wedges you like. Bear in mind thicker slices take longer to steam, I tend to cut it into eighths, and more if the cabbage is very large.

3) Cook! Add your herbs to the steaming water, and place the vegetables in the steamer basket. Check on them at around the 10 minute mark. Push them around a little to make sure they'll all be equally cooked. The overall time limit is dependant on your preferences. If you like them a little firmer, try around 20 mins, and for buttery soft cabbage, try around 25-30 mins.

4) Add salt and pepper to taste (this will definitely need salt). For a bit of tang, try topping it with mustard. Dig in and enjoy!
