Beans replace the traditional sausage in this stick-to-your-ribs classic. Serve with a dollop of whole-grain mustard, if desired.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
6 cups shredded cabbage (about 1/2 small head)
1 cup grated Granny Smith apple (about 1 medium)
1 cup organic vegetable broth (such as Swanson Certified Organic)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 thyme sprig
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 (15.8-ounce) can Great Northern beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/2 cup grated Gruyère cheese
1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add cabbage and next 7 ingredients. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in vinegar; cover and cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat; discard thyme sprig. Stir in beans. Spoon cabbage mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Combine breadcrumbs, cheese, and chopped thyme; toss well. Sprinkle crumb mixture over casserole, and lightly coat crumb mixture with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
Note: Whole wheat breadcrumbs may be substituted for the panko, if desired.
Really good! Simple and delicious - I loved the flavors. I used savoy cabbage and fuji apples because that was what I had on hand. No fresh thyme so used 1 tsp dried thyme to kick up the flavor a bit. Served with a bit of buttered whole wheat bread to round the meal out and it was super satisfying. Also reheated really well for lunches.
