Indian Spiced Cabbage Recipe- Vegan, Gluten Free, GAPS and Paleo Legal
Cabbage is one of the cheapest veggies out there, I find, making it the frugalista's best friend in the kitchen. On the other hand, cabbage bother's some people's digestive system, making it a less appealing option. But sometimes the price of cabbage wins out, and I decide to go ahead and make cabbage, and as long as we don't have too much of it, its fine.
This is a yummy recipe for Indian spiced cabbage, and it is spicy and delicious. Feel free to adjust the spiciness if you don't like heat- you can leave it out entirely, but personally I think the heat adds a lot. I serve this with red lentil dal and chutney and rice. Delish!
Its gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegan, GAPS legal, Paleo/Primal, nightshade free (if you skip the hot pepper), and just totally awesome. Perfect for practically everyone.
1 tablespoon oil of choice (I prefer coconut oil)
1 medium onion
1 1/2 tablespoon mustard seeds
1/2 head cabbage
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/8-1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes (or to taste)
1. Chop onions and saute in oil until golden.
2. Add mustard seeds and cook for a few minutes.
3. Thinly chop cabbage, add to the onions. Saute until softened.
4. Add the rest of the ingredients, and cooked until beginning to brown.
Serve hot or cold.
