Curried Cabbage

I am a vegetable lover- there is no vegetable I don’t like.  However, many people are veggie-phobic.  Therefore, I am always looking for creative recipes to get people trying vegetables in new and appealing ways.  This recipe fits the bill. 

Cabbage is such a healthy vegetable- it is often referred to as “natures broom” because of its fiber content and aiding in detoxification .  It is also a good source of vitamin K and vitamin C and is known to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. 

In other words- you need to get it into your diet.  One way is to blend it into soups where you get all of the nutritional benefits without chewing on the actual cabbage leaf.  I think I may play around with making this very recipe into a soup.   

Another way is to try it braised and flavored to your liking.  This is a very easy, tasty way to prepare cabbage.  The flavors are simple yet rich and filling.  

Curry Cabbagemodified from a recipe on www.allrecipes.com

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, grated
  •  1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small head cabbage, sliced or chunked 
  • 1 cup grated carrots, optional (leave out for Advanced Plan)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  •  Place a large skillet over high heat. Heat the oil and butter and sautee the onion, carrot (optional), and garlic until the onion begins to soften, about 1 minute.  Add the cabbage, coconut, and curry powder; sautee for 2 more minutes.

    Reduce heat to medium-low; pour in the coconut milk, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, and cook to desired doneness.
