Sautéed Red Cabbage With Pomegranate and Cinnamon

Recipe from What's For Lunch, Honey?   

Shredded red cabbage, sautéed with onions and a fine touch of cinnamon. Then, sprinkled with pomegranate seeds to shimmer like red jewels.


1 onion - finely chopped
2 pomegranates - seeds taken out
1 kg red cabbage - finely shredded
2 cinnamon sticks
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons apple gelée
Salt and pepper
2-3 tablespoons butter


In a large pot bring water to boil. Place the shredded cabbage in a steamer, fitting it on top of the boiling water. You can also use a double boiler for this. Gently steam the cabbage until tender, but still slightly crispy.

Heat up a pan and melt the butter. Sauté the onions gently until transparent. Add the steamed cabbage, cinnamon sticks and bay leaf. Sauté for approx. 15 minutes on a low heat.

Add the apple gelée and the pomegranate seeds. Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with apple glazed duck.
