When I told Vee that I was buying cabbage, he immediately began to tell me about how his Mom used to cook it with soy sauce. So that’s what I cooked tonight and it was gooooooood! First I browned ground beef from Baucom’s Best (support local!) They use no antibiotics or hormones and are 100% grass-fed and if you’ve ever seen the Documentary Food Inc., you know how important that is. Anyway, I seasoned it with pepper, Mrs. Dash Table Blend and a little splash of soy sauce. Then you lightly cover the bottom of a pan with soy sauce and saute the cabbage for a few minutes. Just long enough for it to still have a crunch. Serve the beef and cabbage over brown rice and mix. I usually add a tiny pat of butter and sea salt to my rice. A simple, yet filling and satisfying meal.
For dessert, we had Peach Cobbler made from the peaches I bought the other day at the Farmer’s Market. The scent of honey and peaches filled the air!
I found a recipe online, but made a few changes. You can find the original recipe by clicking here. My version is below. Using the whole wheat flour and honey gives it the soft honey graham taste (think Golden Grahams Cereal!) And of course it’s going to be better for you than white flour. In the recipe I substitute white sugar for honey and add brown sugar and sea salt on top. Some of my measurements are also different from the original recipe. Bon Appetit!
