CURRIED CABBAGE

The good stuff:

  • This is an easy dish to make and that I’d recommend you incorporate into your diet as often as possible due to it’s incredible health benefits.
  • Cabbage is not only one of the cheaper vegetables, but it’s also one of the most nutritious ones. I’ve shared the virtues of cabbage in many of my other recipes here on Nana’s Kitchen– and you’ll continue to see a lot more cabbage recipes coming from me 🙂
  • When consumed regularly, cooked cabbage is said to help prevent colon cancer (see source here)
  • Curried cabbage is very flavourful and means you get extra health benefits from the various spices (cumin, turmeric, ginger, fenugreek etc etc).

You’ll need:

  • 1 large cabbage, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • Coconut oil
  • Ginger, finely chopped or grated.
  • Curry*
  • Parsley, chopped (optional)
  • Nigella seeds (optional)

The process:

  • Drizzle some coconut oil and on medium heat, cook the onions until translucent.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, curry powder & nigella seeds. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Then add the chopped cabbage and some water so that it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Cover the pot with a lid and cook for another 5 minutes on medium heat.
  • At the very end, add the chopped parsley, mix everything together and enjoy 🙂

About curry:

  • As it’s well documented these days, curry is not a spice but rather a blend of different spices and a way to allude to a sauce/gravy for certain dishes. But we’ve all been accustomed to find spice packages that read “curry”- assuming it’s the name of the spice.
  • You can buy a read-made curry spice mix OR you can make it yourself. I like curries that include turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, coriander & mustard.
