Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 red cabbage between 2 - 2 1/2 pounds, cored, outer leaves discarded, chopped into one inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 large granny smith apple peeled and cut into fine dice
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon italian parsley chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • In a heavy pot or dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add onions and apples. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Stir in cabbage, golden raisins, and broth. Cover. When broth begins to boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until cabbage has wilted and raisins have plumped.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine sugar, vinegar and caraway seeds. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • When cabbage has cooked, add apple cider mixture and stir to combine. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with parsley if desired.
