Maple Spiced Cabbage

This easy vegetable dish is a favorite on our Thanksgiving table, but also delicious year round. It’s spiced with warm cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves and lightly sweetened with maple and apples. The tart cranberries, onions and garlic offset with savory goodness. Enjoy!

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon both salt and pepper
  • one medium white onion, thinly sliced
  • large clove of garlic, minced
  • small head of purple cabbage, thinly sliced into strips
  • medium green apple, chopped into small chunks
  • 2 cups fresh, unsweetened cranberries
  • 4 tablespoons Couching Lion Maple Syrup
  • 1/4 cup apple cider
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of each: cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

Heat olive oil in a large pan and add onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Saute until translucent and then add cabbage, apple, cranberries, maple syrup, cider, orange juice and spices. Cook until cabbage and apples are softened and cranberries have popped open, 8-10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1 tablespoon unsalted butter.
