White Beans and Cabbage

(Recipe by Heidi Swanson from Super Natural Every Day)

Vendors: See’s Family Farm, JET Produce and Meats, Salt Creek Valley Farm, New Roots for Refugees

Serves 4

2 tablespoons olive oil
4 ounces potatoes, unpeeled, scrubbed and cut into tiny cubes
1 large shallot, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups cooked beans white beans, or 1 can (15 ounce) cannellini/navy/garbanzo beans (rinsed and drained)
3 cups finely shredded green cabbage
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Sea salt 

1. Pour the olive oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the potatoes and a big pinch of salt. Toss, cover, and cook until potatoes are cooked through, about 5–8 minutes. Be sure to scrape the pan and toss the potatoes once or twice so that all sides get browned.
2. Stir in the shallot and the beans. Let the beans cook in a single layer for a few minutes, until they brown a bit. Then scrape and toss again. Cook until the beans are lightly brown and crispy on all sides.
3. Stir in the cabbage and cook for another minute, until the cabbage loses its structure. Serve dusted with parmesan.
