Cheesy Cabbage and Celery Bake

After baking

Ingredients


  • 4 cups cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cups celery including tops, cut into chunks
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons butter or butter substitute - I used 1 tablespoon Smart Balance Buttery Spread
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain flour
  • 1¼ cups low fat milk
  • ½ cup beer, if desired - or, use additional ½ cup milk or other liquid (the beer gives it great flavor, though!)
  • 1 cup low fat finely shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, as desired
  • 3 to 4 fresh sage leaves, crumpled - optional
  • Bread crumbs, if desired - I cubed 2 slices of pumpernickel rye bread
