Red cabbage and other great lunch and dinner ideas that are heart healthy and easy to prepare


Red Cabbage Sweet and Sour from Germany

Red Cabbage Sweet and Sour

From Germany
This cabbage dish is a main staple in Germany and it can be eaten with mashed or cooked potatoes.

It also goes very well with a hearty vegetarian meatloaf!

Red cabbage is a low calorie nutrition powerhouse with many antioxidants that detoxify the body, reduce the cancer risk, and protect a healthy bone structure.

Serves: 6-8 / Ready in: 45 minutes / Calories per serving (1 cup): 120

Great for: low calorie, vegetarian (vegan)

Nutrients: protein, potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium, fiber, vitamins A, B6, C, and K, manganese


  • 1/4 cup butter (Earth Balance or soy margarine for vegan version)
  • 1 2-pound organic red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 6 tablespoons organic raw sugar
  • 2/3 cup balsamic vinegar


Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the cabbage and saute until slightly wilted, about 5 minutes. Add the sugar and toss to coat evenly. Add vinegar and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until the cabbage is tender while stirring often, about 30 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
