Braised Red Cabbage

Braised Red Cabbage topped with Crushed Walnuts

I love cabbage and this method of braising is my all-time favorite.  

Trust me, I like a good coleslaw just as much as the next guy, but this recipe is perfect during the winter when things are dreary and cold.  

It’s like nutritious comfort food!

We also top it with a dusting of California Walnuts.  It’s the perfect addition that adds an unexpected crunch and texture.

 

Red Cabbage

California cabbage is in full production so you shouldn’t have a problem finding at the local grocery store or farmer’s market.

 

 

Red Cabbage

This particular recipe takes one whole head of red cabbage. You could make a double batch… this is great stored in the fridge and eaten cold throughout the week.  

So by all means… Double up!

 

Add olive oil over red onion

Start by adding a few tablespoons of California Olive Oil to a stock pot, add in the red onion and sauté until softened.

The crushed walnut addition is a must-have!  

It’s the perfect side for your St. Patrick’s Day corned beef dish or anything for that matter. I served mine alongside some perfectly grilled sausage and it was yum-o!
