Potatoe & Cabbage with a side of Quinoa

Hello all and Welcome to my dinner table. I've been dying for some cabbage lately. The other day I did a quick run to the store for a few items and picked some up some cabbage. Today I was planning on going back to do my full shopping but lost my atm card and was a bit lazy today.
Anyways I decided to toss some things together .
So let's get started. Sorry for the fuzzy picture. I started with Coconut oil in my cast iron skillet Hubby hot me for Christmas, it's so gorgeous. Also excited to use my butcher block I got from Walmart, it's from the Pioneer Women's new line. Ughh I've been dying to get some of her stuff and the store barely had anything left. Cut up red potatoes and add to the skillet with some salt and pepper, or adoba like I like to use. Cook them for a few minutes and then add chopped onions and garlic and red pepper flakes. I took the skillet and put it in the oven at 400 degrees and let cook about 20 minutes.
After about 20 minutes or so I add cabbage, cabbage cooks way faster than potatoes so do this when they are about halfway done or more. Cook for about 10 minutes.

The last 10 minutes or so of cooking I added some green peppers. I like them to cook a bit but still have a crunch to them. Just a little soft. Also I added some cumin cause I felt like it needed something more. It did the trick and was perfect flavor for this dish.
Mmmm I just love cabbage and potatoes, I could eat this all the time. I'm really loving this new skillet too. The thing is so darn heavy though but that's ok I could use a workout anyways. I love that the handle has a silicon hot pad on it.

So here's my dish a few simple ingredients and yum.You could use butter or olive oil but I think coconut oil is what gives it such great taste.

I served it with some quinoa I cooked up with some onions, peppers and once again coconut oil and adobo and pepper. Also som avocado that wasn't going to make it another day. It was an easy and super delicious meal.

Have a great night.
