A traditional German accompaniment, gets a little lift with sweet apple chunks and cider. Red cabbage is rich in antioxidants, high in dietary fiber, and contains a wealth of important vitamins and minerals.

Size: makes 4-6

1 garlic clove, smashed
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 lb red cabbage, cored and cut into 1 1/2" pieces
1 Gala or Fuji apple, cored and cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 cup unfiltered apple cider
1/2 tsp caraway seeds
2 whole allspice (optional... but I recommend), crushed
1 1/2 tbsp apple-cider vinegar


Cook garlic in butter in a 12″ heavy skillet over medium heat, stirring, 1 minute. Add cabbage apple, cider, caraway, allspice (if using), 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender, 15 to 18 minutes.

Add vinegar and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
