Steamed cabbage

So simple - it's brilliant. This steamed cabbage recipe comes from an old Russian culinary book, written before my mother was born. It was a meal to eat during 40 days fast, preceding Orthodox Easter. Enjoy this simple yet powerful fat-free meal, full of antioxidants and vitamins.

I improved the recipe by squeezing lime juice all over it, as the dish was screaming for some sour accent to be added. Steamed cabbage is not my cup of tea, but I can eat it with lime juice and a great main course.
