Vegetables: Sweet Potato and Cabbage

We love what folks call winter vegetables: Squash, sweet potatoes, turnips and cabbage. I make this dish quite often and we take it with some chicken meat. You know, one of pre-roasted ones you can buy at the grocery store.  Makes a nice lunch and is quick too!


Pour about 3 tablespoons of olive oil and a couple of butter in your big fry pan again. turn the heat on med high to get things going.  Add about 1/2 cup of chopped onion and maybe some bacon if you have any. This time, I didn't have bacon. Once that starts to sizzle, dump in about 3 cups of coarsely shredded cabbage, pop a lid on and let it sweat down in size.  Once there's some room in the pan, dump in about the same amount of sweet potatoes and give it a stir to 'wet' the veggies. Pop the lid back on, turn the temperature down to med low and let the sweet potatoes cook through and the cabbage brown. Go have a coffee with your honey while it's cooking.




Come back, give it a stir and enjoy! You can stir in any pre cooked meat and make it a meal, but the veggies are hearty enough, I just eat them!
