Buttery Cabbage and White Beans over Roasted Potatoes

dscf0611Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Second to beer, nothing feels more Irish to me than potatoes!  It is no secret that I love potatoes and I often wonder how the heck the poor potato got such a bad rap?  Please, we strip off its skin (fiber) and throw it in a vat of hot oil, and it is the potato that takes the blame?  I for one am standing up for this vegetable that is high in vitamin C, a good source of B-vitamins, potassium and fiber (when you eat the skin).

Buttery Cabbage and White Beans over Roasted Potatoes
Serves 4-6
Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Get these cooking first: Roasted Potatoes

4 large Yukon Gold Potatoes, washed
olive oil and salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400F.  Wash potatoes and cut into wedges.  Place on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Roast in oven for 20 minutes, remove sheet and stir them around, return to oven for another 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are done.

Buttery Cabbage and White Beans
1 Tablespoon non-hydrogenated margarine (like Earth Balance) or olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled, grated
1 teaspoon caraway seed
1/2 small head green cabbage, about 4 cups, sliced very thinly (like you were making cole slaw)
1/4 cup water
1 (15 ounce) can white beans, drained
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions in mixture of oil and margarine in soup pot for 3 minutes. Add carrot and caraway seeds and cook 3 minutes more, until seeds become fragrant. Add cabbage and 1/4 cup water to pot, stirring well to incorporate the mixture together and sauté for 10 minutes over medium-low heat until cabbage is cooked.  Add beans and vinegar, and cook uncovered for 3-5 minutes more, or until beans are hot, season with salt and pepper and serve over roasted potato wedges.

Cooking Tip: Grated carrots are super sweet and can offset the taste of bitter when sautéed with greens and other veggies!
