Thanks to all my readers who sent in preparation ideas for cabbage. We went with ML's suggestion for sauteing cabbage with tomato sauce.
We had it for dinner tonight, and we'll probably have it again soon.
Couscous and Cabbage
prepare a mess of couscous per box instructions (substituting chicken broth for water)
chop up half a head of cabbage
dice two slices of bacon and brown in an iron skillet
add cabbage and a can o' tomato sauce
add a splash of that undrinkable plum liquer you have collecting dust on your fridge
add a toss of dried Italian herbs
and a couple drops of Mexican hot sauce (we used Tapatio)
simmer covered for as long as it takes to listen to an episode of Fresh Air (well, maybe not quite, maybe check about fifteen minutes into it)
serve the cabbage over the couscous in a generous bowl.
Garnish with labni or grated peccorino, or both!
