Blondie's Cabbage and Squash...Healthy!

This is such a yummy dish. I've made it all kinds of ways over the years, but I rarely measure anything. I create as I go, usually. This time I decided to post it, so I DID measure for those who need an idea how it might taste. I don't think the cabbage lovers will be disappointed. ~ENJOY~

Serves:

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

1 Hr

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

2 Tbsp
evoo, extra virgin olive oil
2 c
sweet yellow onion, large dice
1
or 2 bell peppers of choice, large dice
2 c
celery, sliced in 1" slices
2 tsp
fresh finely minced garlic
1
cabbage head, cut in 2" pieces
3 c
yellow crook-neck squash, 1/2" slices
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a LARGE pan or 6qt or larger stock pot, put in EVOO on med-hi heat. Add onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Lower heat to medium. Salt and pepper to taste. Continue to saute till onions are transparent.
2
Then lower heat to low, stirring occasionally, while you're chopping cabbage and slicing squash. Add cabbage and squash to pan. Raise heat to med-hi and stir veggies until they are coated with the oil. Add salt and pepper again to taste.
3
Lower heat to med-lo. Add about 1/2 cup water to help veggies steam. Cover. Leave the stuff alone for now.
4
Check in 20 minutes and stir. If you need to add a little more water, well, go ahead! Cover. Leave the stuff alone again. Allow it to steam 15-20 min.
5
Check it for doneness (how YOU like it.) If it's done then add a protein if you want to make it a main dish and stir.

NOTE: I add tofu to keep it vegan. The instructions how to cook it are below. If I want meat in it, I add ground pork~seasoned and drained well. OR Lean ground beef or turkey~seasoned and drained, if needed.
6
I usually serve this with cornbread and as a side, sliced tomatoes.

7
TO PREPARE TOFU~Drain extra firm tofu. Place in a colander. Cover with wax paper, or another barrier on top of it. Then put a weight on it (I use a 6" iron skillet) for about 30 min. You can do this while your cabbage mixture is cooking.
Then cube it into 1" pieces.
8
Put about 1 cup of cornstarch in a med bowl. Season with salt and pepper. **Tofu is very bland, so like chicken, it needs seasoning to taste like anything** Coat tofu with cornstarch mix. In a saute pan on med heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil or any vegetable oil of choice. Saute tofu until coating is med brown and crispy.
