Cabbage with Indian Spices

Adapted from Farmer John’s Cookbook: The Real Dirt On Vegetables: Seasonal Recipes and Stories from a Community Supported Farm by Farmer John Peterson & Angelic Organics (Gibbs Smith Publisher).


3 Tbs extra virgin olive or coconut oil
2 cups minced onion (about 4 medium onions)
1 1/2 tsp minced ginger
1 green hot chile pepper, cut in half lengthwise (can be omitted)
1 pound cabbage (about 1 small head red or green, or both), shredded
1 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Pinch turmeric
3 Tbs water
1 large fresh tomato, peeled, chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp salt


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, ginger, and chile pepper; sauté, stirring often, until the onion is browned, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Stir in the cabbage. Add the coriander, cayenne, and turmeric and mix well. Add the water, reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add the tomato and salt; stir to combine. Cover and cook until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the hot chile pepper before serving.  Serves 4.
