Frizzled Cabbage

This recipe brings out an amazing sweetness to this versatile vegetable. You won’t even know you’re eating cabbage! It is great as a nest for a meat dish, as a side dish, or can be enjoyed on its own. You can add seasonings to taste a few minutes before serving; try nutmeg, paprika, cumin, dill, balsamic vinegar, hot pepper sauce, or sour cream. It is also delicious as is.
