Ingredients for Buttered Cabbage

The main vegetables in this recipe are cabbage and peas, 2 things that we have in abundance right now in the garden.  

I’ve always liked cabbage, but this Summer I turned into a real cabbage lover.  I can’t get enough of it, especially sauteed and buttered!  Yum.

 Our sugar snap peas are coming to a end this season, what’s left is those monster peas that are busting through the pods.

Buttered Rice and Cabbage Recipe

The recipe calls for 1/2 peas so you can either use frozen peas (cook them first) or you can shell fresh peas.   Use whatever you hand on hand and is easiest.  

Sauteed Cabbage in Pan

This recipe calls for 4 cups of cooked rice, basmati rice (and I love this Indian rice recipe!) is my favorite but you can use any type of white rice.  For those nights where you don’t have extra time you can even use instant rice.
