Red Cabbage with Apple

Serves 4


The simplicity of this dish makes it perfect paired with roast pork or chicken. Look for cabbage at bargain prices year-round. It's a healthy food that's as good cooked for hearty winter meals as it is raw for light summer dishes.

For a richer dish, add a few teaspoons of butter when cooking. Add a discrete pinch of caraway seed if desired. This dish is meant to be uncomplicated and simple.

  • 1 small head red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 1 apple, peeled and shredded
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons sugar, or to taste
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, optional for garnish

Put all ingredients, except parsley, in a large pan. Cover and cook on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook until cabbage is soft. Serve with parsley sprinkled on top.
