Niki’s Spiced Red Cabbage


This dish is pretty special…no one will ever know how little effort it actually requires! I used to really loathe cabbage until I made it like this, now I can’t get enough! Here’s a simple, ruby red side dish to wow your guests this Christmas:

All you need is:

Use organic/natural real food ingredients where possible)



Serves 4-6

· 1 head of red cabbage, finely sliced (if using the mandolin, BE CAREFUL and slice slowly…don’t end up with a sliced finger like me!)

· The juice and zest of two oranges

· 1 cinnamon quill – Steenbergs

· 1 medium/large apple, cored and sliced

· 2 tablespoons of agave syrup or coconut sugar

· 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of coconut butter



Step 1:

On a medium heat, add your olive oil, cored apple and sliced cabbage to your small pan and put the lid on. Leave for around 4 minutes or until the cabbage starts to wilt down.

Step 2:

Add your orange juice and zest and cinnamon stick and mix well with a silicone spatula.

Step 3:

After a couple of minutes, add your chosen sweetener and adjust for taste, let it simmer down for another 3-5 minutes on a low heat. The cabbage will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Happy Baking!
