Sautéed Cabbage

I'm on a diet and I need a break from my usual steamed vegetables so I decided to have a sautéed vegetable.  The only veggie left is cabbage.

Our body needs fat too, you know. As long as we keep the saturated fat and the cholesterol level at a minimum, we'd be ok :-)  Besides, oil enhances the flavor of food specially when they are sautéed.

So let's do this.  This is a very simple dish.

By the way, have you heard of cruciferous vegetables?  It's a group of "super vegetables" that are rich in phytochemicals, vitamins, minerals, and fibers that are believed to help lower down the risk of cancers, lower cholesterol levels, help in weight reduction, etc.  Well, cabbage belongs to this group of vegetables.

Ingredients

Cabbage, julienned - 1/4 of a head

Garlic, crushed and chopped - 3 cloves

Tomato, diced - 1 medium

Onion, diced - 1 small

Grapeseed oil - 1 tsp

Water - 2 tbsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Procedure:

1. In a saucepan, sauté garlic in oil until it is franrant. Add the onion, then the tomatoes, then the water.

2. Season with salt and pepper then cover and let it simmer until the tomatoes are mushy.

2. Add the cabbage.  Check the taste. Adjust when necessary.  Remove from fire when the cabbage are wilted.

Serve and enjoy a healthy dish
