Ingredients:  
1/2 Medium Head Green Cabbage, Chopped As For Slaw (About 4 to 5 Cups)
1 1/2 tsp. Rice Wine Vinegar or Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp. Sugar (Optional)
1 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 Generous Cups Cooked and Drained White Beans
1 tsp. Toasted Caraway Seeds (Optional)
Garnish; Slivered Green Onion (Optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Use your favorite method of cooking dried beans, or try this: Soak the beans over-night, then drain thoroughly. Place them in a pot and cover with chicken broth. Add a bay leaf and salt and pepper to taste. It takes at least an hour and a half of simmering for the beans to soften sufficiently. They probably will require additional stock during the cooking period, so check occasionally.

Toss all the ingredients (except the cooked beans and the caraway seeds) in a microwave safe glass bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Cut a small steam slit in the top and cook on high (full power) in the microwave oven for five (5) minutes. Let stand two (2) minutes before carefully removing the plastic wrap.

The cabbage should be crisp-tender. If not to your liking, re-cover the dish and give it another minute in the microwave. If you like, correct the seasoning with more salt, pepper, lemon juice (or vinegar) and butter.

Separately, warm the beans and toss with the cabbage and caraway seeds. Serve topped with small ham cakes and a sprinkling of slivered green onion.
