This was what I worked with for dinner last night:

  • 1/2 head of cabbage
  • A cup or so of kidney beans . I got a huge can of kidney beans in the dented can bin for cheap. Half went into a pasta salad the night before
  • Leftover canned tomato soup we had at lunch . About 1/2 cup 
  • A very sad looking tomato in the fridge

I also used from the pantry:

  • 1 onion
  • A few cloves of garlic
  • Cooking oil
  • Salt
  • Curry powder 

One of my family’s favorites is fried cabbage. This is just a twist in that. First – I sautéed garlic and onion in cooking oil. I added a little bit more oil and tossed in coursely chopped cabbage. I like to let it cook until the onions are  caramelized and cabbage tender and slightly browned.

Then I added the beans , chopped tomato, & tomato soup and  seasoned with salt & curry . Let cook until everything is heated through and that was that.  

 You can use any seasoning you have on hand and it would be just as awesome. I just happened to be in the mood for curry that evening.

I served it with rice but my daughter ate it without happily . I think she’s sick of rice.
