Tropical Mango Cabbage Bowl

Dump Skillet meals are ideas for meals to create with fresh produce– specifically fresh produce that is on its way out.  Sometimes we don’t know what to make or what we can do with a bunch of veggies because we aren’t used to using produce as the star of our meals or as the only components of our meals. Hopefully these ideas will inspire you!

  10. Transfer mixture to serving dish.

* For this recipe, I was using cabbage that was already made, which is why it’s part of the produce section. If you’re using cabbage that is leftover, add the cabbage to the skillet after you add the , just to heat it up.

If you’re making it from scratch, here is a basic cabbage recipe to use, courtesy of my mom: In a large pot or skillet, put a little olive oil in, and once it heats up add the cabbage. Saute it for a bit then fill with a little water– just enough to slightly cover the bottom of the pan but not too much. Let the cabbage continue to saute on about medium heat until it reaches the desired tenderness.
