Provençal Sautéed Cabbage

Provençal Sautéed Cabbage

True confession, I am a total Francophile, especially if it has anything to do with food. There are so many things I love about France and the flavors of French cooking are certainly near the top of that list. I’ve been gearing up for another trip across the pond this spring and practicing all of my french vocabulary. It has inspired me to create a dish that would allow you to relish in the flavors of southern France without leaving your own home! This simple Provençal Sautéed Cabbage recipe is highlighted by the aromatic Herbes de Provence. 

Anytime I taste herbes de provence, the dish magically transports me right to the heart of Provence amidst the lavender fields. If you are not familiar with herbes de provence, it is a blend of dried herbs that are typically used in the kitchens in southeastern France. The blend often contains rosemary, thyme, orgeano, savory, marjoram, and lavender.

Many of the herbs often used in this blend also maintain amazing qualities for your health! The mix becomes highly anti-microbial, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral! It is an excellent addition to any kitchen and this sautéed cabbage dish is an easy way to try it out.
