Here’s a very tasty and simple way to prepare your cabbage and carrots as a quick side dish for meal prep or a weeknight dinner. In this recipe I used red cabbage, but you can also use regular cabbage as well. Check out this post to learn more about what the purple color in red cabbage means.
I enjoyed this cabbage with some salmon and Jamaican rice and peas.
