This is one of my favorite ways to use cabbage, a traditional dish that has been passed down through my family and is a staple at big family meals.  This old-school recipe is super easy to make and adds colour, taste, and a bit of digestive support to a main meal.


  • medium cabbage shredded
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1-2 apples diced
  • 2 tbsp sugar (or alternative)
  • 1/4 cup vinegar (white, or apple cider if you like things tangy)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups water


  1. Saute onion in butter
  2. Add apples, vinegar, salt, sugar and water and heat it until boiling
  3. Add cabbage stirring and bring back to a boil
  4. Reduce heat to low and cook for 30 to 40 minutes
  5. Serve with a hearty main meal or on its own as a nutritious snack, and you can refrigerate or freeze some for later.
