Day 15-31 Days of Samhuinn Cooking-Sautéed Red Cabbage

When sautéing cabbage, cook until your preference.  I prefer mine al dente. just softened but with a bite and freshness still to it.

Mama Moon's Samhuinn Sautéed Red Cabbage

1 head of red cabbage, shredded (I use organic so its a small/med sized head)
1-2 TB olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup of finely sliced leeks
2 TB apple cider vinegar
2 tsp fresh or 1 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste

In a large skillet over medium high heat, saute cabbage in hot oil.  Stirring frequently.
Add leeks and garlic and continue to saute until cabbage is softened.
Add cider vinegar and stir and allow to cook off about 1 min.
Add herbs and spices, stir to combine. Reduce heat and let simmer 5 min.  Serve.
