Mediterranean Spiced Cabbage & Carrots

Photo & Recipe:  Tod Dimmick

A hearty vegetable comfort food.  A food processor with the slicing wheel makes short work of slicing these veggies.

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time:  15 minutes
Serves:  4-6 as a side dish

3 TB Olive Oil
1 medium onion, 1/4 inch dice
3 cups thinly sliced cabbage (about 1/2 head)
2 cups thinly sliced carrots (about 5)
3 TB capers with juice
2 TB fresh sage, mince, or 1 tsp. dry
1 tsp. celery seed
1 tsp. salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

Heat the oil in a large saute pan or skillet over medium low heat and cook the onion, stirring, for 5 minutes.  Add the cabbage, carrots, capers, sage, and celery seed.  Stir and cover to allow the liquids released from the cabbage to add steam to the dish.  Cook for 10 minutes, stirring every minute or so, or until the carrots and cabbage are tender-crisp. 

Serve, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
