Diabetic Friendly Thanksgiving Side Dish to Consider this Holiday

Growing up in El Paso, as I did, the only time I ate cabbage was as a garnish for pozole or in overly sweet coleslaw.  Red cabbage…olvida te!  I never got the chance to appreciate cabbage, or even taste the red stuff.  In culinary school I made my first dish with red cabbage: coleslaw. Not terribly exciting.  When I got to work with red cabbage next it was in the form of warm German salads.  Through warm German potato-cabbage salads, warm German spinach-cabbage salads and warm German coleslaws I got the idea that red cabbage is only eaten one way: German.  (Can I just say that I feel like I had the same experience with beets until one day in the test kitchen when we roasted red and golden beets with rosemary, orange slices and orange juice…yum! But that’s another post.)  The red-head seemed bland, boring, and not worth recipe development.  Luckily for me the American Diabetes Association took up the reigns and showcased red cabbage to be more interesting than a sickly sweet slaw.  As part of our pledge to help stop the spread of diabetes, here is the recipe for some delicious braised red cabbage.
