Comments

This is a great side dish, especially when you have a lot of cabbage to use up.  I like to add diced onion, I sauté it a bit first before I add the cabbage and carrots.

This is my go-to veggie side dish! I use chopped carrots instead of shredded and just cook them in the pan for a couple minutes before adding the cabbage.
