Steamed, Creamy Cabbage

Vegetable Harvest by Wells


1 pound cabbage

tsp. fine sea salt

2 T. light cream

Freshly ground black pepper

1 T. freshly squeezed lemon juice



Coarsely shred cabbage. Set aside.  Combine the cream, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large bowl.  Toss to blend.  Set aside. Bring 1 quart water to a simmer in the bottom of a steamer.  Place the cabbage on the steaming rack.  Place the rack over the simmering water, cover, and steam until the cabbage is tender, about 7 minutes.  Do not overcook.  With a slotted spoon, carefully transfer the cabbage to the bowl with the cream dressing.  Toss to coat evenly with the dressing.  Taste for seasoning.  Serve warm.
