An interesting Tanzanian side dish, from the African Cookbook by Bea Sandler.
- 1/2 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
- 2 lbs cabbage, cut into 1-inch wedges
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
In a large saucepan, saute onions, and butter until onions soften.

Stir in unsweetened coconut milk, and season with salt and pepper.
Simmer 5 minutes or more or until cabbage and onion is done to your liking.
