Cooking Time80 Mins

Braised red cabbage is a delicious accompaniment to the gamey flavour of a slow reared breed of turkey at Christmas, but it could also be served with beef, belly pork, duck or other game such as venison, grouse, or wood pigeon. The health benefits of eating red cabbage are quite extraordinary. Did you know that red cabbage has ten times more vitamin A and twice as much iron as green cabbage? It is also thought to deter cancer, prevent diabetes, slow down the onset of Alzheimer’s, and detoxify the body. It is also good for skin and eye care, weight loss, improving heart health and boosting the immune system. An extraordinary vegetable indeed!

Chef tips

"Braised red cabbage can be prepared up to four days in advance and kept in the fridge."

"Be sure to check the cabbage half way through the cooking time to ensure that the moisture does not evaporate and catch on the bottom of the pan – add a few spoons of water if necessary."

Voila!
