Sophie’s gingered braised red cabbage with apples and cinnamon

Red onion, red cabbage, cinnamon & ginger! Yummy! 🙂

This is a twist on the normal braised red cabbage. This is a very flavourful & festive red cabbage dish. This isn’t too sweet but just sweet enough with the apple chunks and you taste a warm ginger flavour with a hint of cinnamon.

This is great served with boiled potatoes & some chicken sausages.

Recipe: For 2 persons, with a bit of seconds


2 to 3 tablespoons of a fruity Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( EVOO )
1 red onion, peeled & finely chopped
450 gr red cabbage, cleaned, washed, pad dry on kitchen paper & shredded
225 gr of fresh apples, peeled and finely chopped into little chunks, weighted when peeled
2.5 cm of fresh ginger, peeled & finely grated
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
150 ml gluten-free vegetable stock
3 or 4 grinds of fresh black pepper
a bit of Maldon sea salt flakes


1. I prepare my cabbage in a steam cooker with fitting lid. You can also make it in a large cook pot with fitting lid. Take your steam cooker and add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the fruity EVOO. Heat up on medium heat. When hot, add the chopped onion and the apple pieces and fry for about 5 to 8 minutes until soften. Stir often.

2. Then, add the shredded cabbage and fry for about 5 minutes. Stir from time to time.

3. Now, add the grated ginger & the cinnamon. Stir well. Fry for about 5 minutes or so.

4. Add the vegetable stock & stir well with a wooden spoon. Turn the heat up on high. Bring to the boil. When boiling, place the fitting lid on the steam cooking pot. Let it sit on the high heat for about 10 to 15 minutes until the valve of the steam lid is sizzling a lot all the time. Carefully, remove the steam cooker from the heat and with help of a wooden spoon, set the air free from the valve. When completely sizzled out, remove the fitting lid.
If you are cooking the cabbage mix in a large cooking pot, cook until the cabbage & the apples are cooked through & then check the seasoning. Check the cabbage flavours. It has to taste fab! Add some Maldon sea salt flakes & 3 to 4 grinds of fresh black pepper. Mix with a spoon. Taste again!

MMM,..this is lovely enjoyed in good company with a good glass of red Cabernet Sauvignon wine like Australian’s Jacob’s Creek, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, vintage 2006!!!!
