Hearty, delicious, and sure to please any crowd. This recipe is filling enough to stand alone or could make a great side dish.

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 cups red potatoes (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 6 cups thinly sliced green cabbage (about 1/2 head)
  • 1 cup 1% or nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Scrub potatoes but do not peel. Cut into quarters. Cook in boiling water or steam until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
  3. While potatoes cook, heat butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and cook until it becomes clear, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Add cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage begins to brown, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  5. Reduce heat to low. Add milk, salt and pepper. Cover and cook until cabbage is tender, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  6. Drain potatoes. Add cabbage mixture to potatoes. Mash with a potato masher or large fork to reach desired texture. Serve warm.

Notes

  • Use any all-purpose potatoes such as yellow or white. Russet potatoes are also good but you may want to peel through the rough skin after scrubbing them.
  • Try adding cilantro on top for more flavor.
