Look. This is the dish from the cover of Heidi Swanson's new book, Super Natural Every Day. I'm slightly aware that a zillion copies of the book made their way into the hands of compatible bloggers, for the inevitable good reviews that would result. I am not on the A List, though, and bought the book myself, with real money.
Really happy about it!
It's so interesting to explore the culinary habits of another cook. Heidi goes for browned, crisp, deep flavors. Perhaps it's a make-up for no meat (she's a vegetarian). But browned beans? New to me.
It was simple, filling (oof) and tasty. Cabbage, potatoes, onions, beans. Some cheese. At this point you hardly need a recipe. Stir fry, that's about it. I think it needs the addition of some vegetable broth for moistness.
But I loved it, because I've never had beans with cabbage. I think. And potatoes in there? Wonderful. We jiggered with it by adding a tiny dash of sherry vinegar, but might skip that next time.
Next time, I'm making it without a recipe.
