Quick Meal Recipe: Cabbage + Cream Cheese
When you open your fridge and it's lookin' rather picked-out, what do you do? Close it and call for take-out? Sigh and go for fast food? Just cry 'take me out of here' please? Or praise your lucky stars that someone else is cooking tonight?! ;-) There's definitely challenge in figuring out what to make day-in and day-out. The daily grind can take it out of ya, and that's when it sure can help to have a helping hand at mealtime.
Take this, for instance: there's half a head of cabbage in the crisper drawer and a couple tablespoons of cream cheese left in the package. Who would dream at first glance that these are the makings of a delicious side dish? This Cream of the Crop Cabbage Recipe is not only easy but very adaptable. If you don't have the olive oil spread/butter, don't fret. I've made this without and it still tastes great. Not quite as rich, but believe me, it'll do. No light olive oil either? Not a deal breaker. You can easily sub in the oil you have on hand, or just simmer the cabbage in the 3/4 cup water.
So, what's in your fridge? Could you use some ideas of what to make? That's what Queen of the Quick Meal is all about. Start out by typing in your main ingredient(s) in the Recipe Search to see what you can make with what you've got on hand.
