Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 4 medium-size potatoes, peeled and cut into small dice
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 small sweet onion, finely diced
  • 1 Tbsp. finely diced shallots or leeks
  • 1 large green onion, white and green parts finely sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small head green cabbage, cored and finely shredded
  • 2 tsp. unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup skim milk, scalded
  • ¼ tsp. dried parsley
  • ⅛ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  • Put the potatoes in a saucepan. Cover with cold water. Add the lemon juice and bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover, and simmer until tender.
  • In a large, deep nonstick sauté pan treated with nonstick spray, bring the olive oil to temperature over medium-high heat. Add the onion, shallots (or leeks), and green onion; sauté for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender. Lower the heat and add the garlic; sauté for 1 minute. Add the cabbage. Cover and cook until the cabbage is tender, about 10 minutes.
