This low-carb side dish is the perfect mix of savoury with a touch of sweetness. It’s lovely way to lighten up a heavy, wintery meat dish, and the bright pink-purple makes it a beautiful addition to any winter dinner party spread.
A few tips to getting this just right though. I like to cook the cabbage on a higher heat first until its just starting to glisten. Then reduce the heat as low as possible on your cooktop, cover and simmer until soft with just a little bite. Cooking too long can result in cabbage that’s too mushy so keep an eye on it!
This quick and easy low-carb side is ideal for meal prep and batch cooking. Ideal to serve with crispy duck, pork belly or roast chicken.
