Green Braise

A warm, spicy vegetable dish that makes good use of late season vegetables.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20-25 minutes
Serves 6-8

2 TB olive oil
1 small onion, sliced
1/2 head cabbage, thinly sliced (about 4 cups)
4 stalks celery, thinly sliced
3 leeks, cleaned and white/light green parts thinly sliced
2-3 cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 tsp caraway seed
1 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
Salt to taste

Heat the oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium heat and cook the onion, stirring, for 5 minutes. Add the cabbage, celery, and leeks, stir to coat, and add the stock. Sprinkle on the caraway, red and black pepper, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Serve in shallow bowls.
