Quick Creamed Cabbage

This is the only way I liked cabbage growing up. It's one of the few ways my husband likes it now. I must confess we haven't convinced my toddler to try it yet, but we're continuing to offer it to her. This is a quick, economical, healthy side dish that won't leave your kitchen smelling like boiled cabbage (and the cabbage isn't mushy, either!).

4 cups shredded green cabbage
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter (or margarine)
1/16 teaspoon nutmeg

Combine all ingredients in microwave safe 2-quart covered casserole dish. Microwave on high 4 minutes. Stir. Microwave another 3-4 minutes. We often stir in 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese at the end and let it sit a few minutes with the lid on to melt the cheese. It's good with or without the cheese.

Serves 4-6
