My husband loved this fast FAT-FREE Cabbage dish. I’ve always made cabbage with bacon or ham fat. Yes, I have German, Polish and Southern cooking roots. The one thing I didn’t expect is that the canned Fire Roasted Tomatoes come with “burn marks.” The burn marks had me panicking when I thought that I had burned the food!! No burns and no burn flavor….whew;) Do you love my Mom’s 1970’s flowered pot?

  • 5 cups of water
  • 1 can of Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes + 3 cans of water
  • 1 tbsp. of minced garlic
  • cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Add the tomato paste and water to a large pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Stir in the garlic and pepper.
  3. After the liquid boils, add the Onion and Carrots and stir in.
  4. Then add the Cabbage and bring down the stove burner to medium.
  5. Add the diced tomatoes.
  6. The liquid should just barely cover the top of the vegetables. If you need more liquid, add water.
  7. Simmer until the cabbage is soft, but not soggy. About 10 minutes.
