#SundaySupper: Tangy, Spiced Red Cabbage {Lighten Up the Holidays}

This week the #SundaySupper crew is sharing lightened up holiday dishes. This is a great, tasty substitute for coleslaw. And it's easy, too! I used red cabbage which has a slightly tougher texture but slightly sweeter flavor than its green counterpart.


Ingredients

  • 1 red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tart apple, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 C pitted dates, chopped
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t ground cloves
  • 14 t ground cardamom
  • 1 t black cumin seed
  • 1 t caraway seed
  • 3 T white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 C water
  • splash of olive oil
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • red pepper flakes, to taste

Procedure
In a large flat-bottom pot, add all of the ingredients - except the salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes - to the pot.


Stir to mix thoroughly. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the cabbage is tender, approximately one hour. Add water - when needed - to prevent the cabbage from drying out. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Spoon into serving bowl and serve warm. This is also nice served cold the next day.

Here's what the rest of the crew brought to the table...
