St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I don’t do all that much during the day, but at night, I always find time to make a nice dinner. We usually focus on the side dishes because that’s where all the potatoes are found. I do love my potatoes and when they’re creatively mashed together with other vegetables, my heart smiles. Last night, we prepared an easy, yet tasty and filling combination of savory cabbage and potatoes. It was delicious, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you.
This is one of those “there’s hardly anything in this dish, but it’s still really good” recipes. I like these the best because they’re so easy to put together. In the case of this dish, you’ll need some red potatoes, a head of green cabbage, some veggie broth, an onion, salt, pepper and a few other things. It’s quintessential Irish fare. I love it.
The flavors for this dish are what you’d expect potatoes and cabbage to taste like. There’s enough salt added to keep things interesting though. I consider this dish to be a classic that can easily by made each and every St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a staple.
2 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 Medium Red Potatoes, Cut into Sixths
1 Large Sweet Onion, Sliced
1 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1 Cup Vegetable Broth
1 Small Head Green Cabbage, Coarsely Chopped
1/2 Cup Parsley, Chopped
I’d like to thank Sumptuous Living for this recipe. I pulled it from their website and I am quite happy with the results!
Cook the Potatoes & Onion
Warm a large dutch oven over medium heat. Add the olive oil, potatoes, onion, salt, pepper and vegetable broth to it. Stir everything together, cover the pot and let the contents of the dutch oven cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are just tender.
Uncover the pot and add the cabbage to it. Stir the cabbage into the potatoes and let everything cook for another five minutes or until the cabbage is just tender. When finished, turn off the heat and add the parsley to the pot. Stir that in too.
Plate & Serve
Taste the contents of the pot to make sure it’s to your liking and season if necessary. Divide the cabbage and potatoes between plates, serve and enjoy!
The Final Cabbage & Potatoes Dish
This is a good one. I’d even go so far as to add a pat of butter to each serving, but that’s just me. I enjoyed this side dish very much and it will indeed become a staple in my house.
