Vegetable Recipe Challenge- Day 11- Cabbage & Apples

Not a recipe that came out the way I thought it would. Think it would taste better in the slow cooker, done longer and possibly with some extra flavors. I’m sharing though as it’s a recipe a friend gave me, and if I come up with some new flavor I’ll update. It’s a good side though, and my kids added mustard to it. Apples and mustard, don’t ask how they come up with that, but they ate it  so that’s all that matters! I think it needs some sweetness in there, sweeter apple, maybe cider vinegar.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 pound cabbage
1 medium or 2 small apples, I used Gala. Core the apples and chop up to cubes
1 teaspoon caraway seeds

Thinly slice cabbage, of course do not chop up the core, discard that.
 Heat oil in a large skill. Add in onions and seeds to cook on medium high heat. Heat till the onion is softened but do not brown. Drop in cabbage and stir. Cover to cook until cabbage wilts. Add in your apples and stir frequently. You want to cook it until the liquid mostly is gone, this took about 15 minutes. By then my apples were soft.

I need to do this again, play with flavors! Any one else do a dish similar to this? I’d love to hear some idea or other versions!
