Sautéed Cabbage with a Kick

The title for this post immediately reminds me of Jackie Chan doing a jumping side kick, with tiger stripes and lightning flashes in the background.  Ka-pow!

Asian influence or not (and this recipe is NOT), Jackie Chan is the man.  And this cabbage… is… the veggie?  the side dish?  the vegetable with the lowest fat content?  True story.

I ate this for breakfast.  It reminded me of Tortilla-esque things, like tacos.  So good.

Spicy Sautéed Cabbage

4 cups chopped Savoy cabbage
1/2 cup water
1-2 cloves thinly sliced fresh garlic
a pinch to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (depending on how hot you like it)
2 teaspoons olive oil or a few shots of cooking spray
salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tablespoons salsa verde (store bought or home made)

Directions: in a large skillet (over medium high heat), place water.  Bring to a boil.  Add cabbage and garlic.  Cook (stirring a few times) until cabbage is tender and water has evaporated.  Add crushed red pepper, olive oil, and salt and pepper.  Stir frequently and continue cooking (and stirring) until cabbage color has mellowed a bit and garlic has turned lightly golden (be careful not to burn the garlic).  Turn off heat and remove pan from heat.  Stir in salsa verde and enjoy!

Makes: around 1 cup (yes, cabbage is a jerk that way) or 1 serving.
