Pesto Sautéed Cabbage

Everyone is talking about “zoodles” or “cauliflower rice,” but, consider the mebbe not so humble cabbage…

Pick up a bag of coleslaw mix at most any supermarket, add a little melted butter and a jar of pesto sauce, and you have yourself a perfectly lovely and pretty darned inexpensive, too, side dish.

Like, for Grilled Ranch Swordfish, mebbe, but this could stand on its own as  a main course, with some garlic bread on the side.

•1 bag coleslaw mix
•1 jar pesto sauce
•1 tbsp Sherry Peppers Sauce*
•1 tbsp butter

*No Sherry Peppers Sauce? No Problem! Simply add a bit of decent sherry (none of that “cooking” stuff) and a dash or three of your fave hot sauce, to taste.

Note: you wanna go old school and shred your own cabbage and make your own darned pesto? Go for it! I, however, am really quite happy with coleslaw mix and ALDI’s premade pesto sauce.

Melt the butter in a large pan over medium high heat.

Add the cabbage and Sherry Peppers Sauce and toss to coat well.

Sauté for three or four minutes, until the cabbage has wilted a bit.

Add the pesto sauce, toss to coat well, and cook for another three to four minutes, until everything is nicely heated through.


Like mebbe with that Ranch Swordfish.

Tho… a regular steak or even some chicken would work a treat, too.
