Add this festive Braised Red Cabbage with cranberries to your holiday table!
Braised Red Cabbage is the perfect side dish for your holiday table. This Braised Red Cabbage is an inexpensive side dish that your family will love. Plus, it is full of antioxidants, nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Red cabbage is also high in Vitamin C and Vitamin K. Yay for plants!
As the red cabbage cooks with the cranberries, apple cider, a cinnamon stick, and bay leaf, the aroma of the holidays fills the kitchen. Your house will smell just like the holidays. The cabbage slowly cooks until it is tender and sweet. Then an apple, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar get added to the mix. A little bit of sugar is needed just to balance out the flavors. I didn’t add too much apple cider vinegar because I didn’t want the dish to be overly tart since there are cranberries. You can adjust to amount of sugar and vinegar to your taste.
Isn’t the color of this Braised Red Cabbage just gorgeous?!
This dish would be perfect for Thanksgiving and for Christmas. It’s naturally vegan and gluten-free too!
