Cabbage Peanut Stew

If you have made the famous CaWaSa recently, you will probably have 1/2 white cabbage sitting in the fridge. Do not despair! Here comes a recipe to aid you with that.

  1. prepare 1/2 white cabbage by cutting off thin slices
  2. dice 2 carrots
  3. dice 1 red bell pepper, 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic and 1 red chilli
  4. sauté bell pepper, onion, garlic and chili in a big pot until glazed
  5. add mustard (1 tablespoon), cumin (1 tablespoon) and sauté for 1 more minute
  6. add sieved tomatoes (400gr), vegetable broth (250ml), cabbage and carrots
  7. simmer for 20 minutes
  8. add peanut butter (4 tablespoons) and paprika powder (1/2 teaspoon)
  9. add kidney beans (1 can) and sweet corn (1 can)
  10. season with mango juice
  11. stir well and serve with black rice

This is an extremely nutritous and satiating stew without compromising in exotic deliciousness. I prefer this meal extra hot to get my insides warmed up. Fun fact: peanuts are legumes, not nuts, and laden with protein and many vitamines and minerals.

Cabbage Walnut Salad

It’s that time of the year when everyone gets the flu. Luckily there are tons of cabbages right now at the market. We Germans make our famous Sauerkraut from those. They are high in vitamine C which boosts your immune system, so you want to eat lots of them!

  1. prepare 1/2 white cabbage by cutting off thin slices and placing them in a big bowl
  2. add 1 onion, cut into thin slices
  3. add 1 apple, cut into thin slices
  4. add salt (1 teaspoon)
  5. add apple vinegar (1 tablespoon)
  6. knead thoroughly until everything is soaked well
  7. leave alone for at least 30 minutes
  8. add minced parsley (1 tablespoon)
  9. add hacked walnuts (1 handful)
  10. add maple sirup (1 tablespoon)
  11. add walnut oil (2 teaspoons)
  12. add ground cumin (1 pinch)
  13. stir well and serve

The combination of flavors is special, but in a good way. Partnered with something hot like SIAB or a stew, it makes the perfect seasonal meal.
