Cabbage and Tomato Stir Fry

This is a simple and healthy side dish. That's all there is to it, really. If I ever need a quick veggie dish, I whip this up in a few minutes.

Ingredients:
- Cabbage
- Tomatoes
- Garlic
- Salt

Directions:

- Mince the garlic and set aside.

- Cut the cabbage into strips, about a quarter inch thick or so.

- Slice the tomatoes into thing wedges.

- Heat some oil in a pan.

- Add the garlic and stir for a few seconds, until fragrant.

- Add the tomatoes and a bit of water and cook until the tomatoes soften a bit. Adding a sprinkle or two of salt will help with this.
- Add the cabbage and salt to taste.

- Stir everything in the pan until the cabbage is cooked through.

- Enjoy this healthy side dish guilt-free!

There is truly nothing like a simple stir fry dish. I do think using one or two ingredients only brings out it's full flavour. And this dish really fits that bill.

Such stir-fry is very common in my kitchen. Easy, tasty, nutritious.

Cabbage is so under-rated. It's a dream veg -- keeps well in the fridge, and is so versatile. I like having it around to do just as you did -- a quick, simple stir-fry that's wonderful on a hectic weeknight.

My kind of side! Simple. Fresh. Fast. And an easy way to use up that last bit of cabbage I have lurking in the fridge before I break into the new one I brought home this morning.
