Braised Cabbage Recipe

It's holiday time of year. While a bird or some kind of meat is usually the star of the show, an abundance of tasty yet healthy side dishes is a must. Have you ever tried braised cabbage? 

Common at your farmer's market this time of year or easily found in the grocery store, most of us walk right on by. But did you know that cabbage is packed with nutrients yet remains very low calorie. Cook it with some onions, carrot and garlic along with some bone broth (or collagen or bone broth protein powder mixed with water)? Yum!

Nutrition Facts

This will be one of the healthiest sides you'll put on the table. At only 80 calories per serving, it still contains 5 grams of protein and 14 grams of carbohydrates. This includes over 5 grams of fiber as well.

This braised cabbage recipe also offers a whopping 3,099 IU of vitamin A, which is 133 percent of your Daily Value*. It also offers 47 mg of vitamin C, which is 63 percent DV. 

With its main ingredients, it's considered dairy-free, gluten-free, Paleo and plant-based (when defined as a diet consisting primarily of plant foods, with limited animal-derived products). Substitute vegetable broth for the bone broth and it also becomes a vegan and vegetarian dish.

How to Make Braised Cabbage 

First, prep all the vegetables. Thinly slice two medium white onions. Cut one carrot into thin rounds. Mince one garlic clove. And with a large Savoy cabbage, halve, core and thinly slice each half. 

In a large pot over medium heat, heat the olive oil (you can also use coconut oil). Add in the sliced onions, carrots and garlic. Cook and stir until the onions start to turn golden, around 8 minutes. 

Next, add in the sliced cabbage and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage wilts, about 5 minutes.

Add in the broth and bring to a simmer. You can also quickly make your own bone broth by mixing our Multi Collagen Protein, Collagen Peptides or Bone Broth Protein with one cup of water. Cover and cook over low heat until tender, around 20 minutes.

Uncover and add in the apple cider vinegar. Increase the heat to medium, and cook for another 10 minutes, occasionally stirring. Season with the salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
