Try this eye-catching, easy-to-make braised cabbage for a change of pace from the usual roasted root vegetables and rice pilaf.

Ingredients

  • ½ head small red cabbage, shredded   
  • 2 medium green apples, julienne   
  • 2 medium-sized cloves garlic, minced   
  • 2 teaspoons sugar   
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed, or to taste   
  • ½ teaspoon table salt   

Directions

Put all of the ingredients in a heavy-bottomed pot. Place a lid on the pot, and cook over low heat until the cabbage and apples are soft, about 45 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add small amounts of hot water if mixture becomes too dry.

Red Cabbage Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Red Cabbage Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
