Mom Always Made Red Cabbage



When I was growing up we always had red cabbage sauteed in garlic.


I still love it the way she cooked it, it's funny I only see it most of the time shredded in salads.


This is a great way to get the healthy benefits out of this pretty vegetable and making it a delicious side dish for sure.

Boiling It and Tips



I found that boiling it makes it very tender.


But if you want to preserve all the vitamins in it, see my tips below.


Boiling it does take some of the vitamins out of any vegetable, so I do prefer to use another method.


Mom always boiled our cabbage first before she sauteed it.

Tips



I have a little tip!


Freeze the whole head of cabbage first and when it thaws, it will wilt and be very soft already.


Rinse and saute.


I don't always have time to wait for thawing.


Also, make sure it's in a plastic bag, thawing can get really messy with this color!


It really is so easy to do, just a little harder to cut up, so I use a kitchen food scissor!
