1 Heat the oil in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the cabbage and cook, stirring frequently, until wilted, about 4 minutes.
2 Add the thyme, caraway seeds, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring constantly, just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in the beans, potatoes, and water; bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes.
