RedCabbagewCarrotsDSCF4473 -croppedA colorful medley of vegetables with a little spiciness from the fresh red hot pepper and garlic.
Serves 6

1  medium onion, chopped
2  tablespoons olive oil
1  small red cabbage, cut into strips
3  carrots, cut into rounds
1  to 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1  fresh red hot pepper, cut into thin rings
2  cloves garlic, pressed
1  bunch scallions, chopped
a few parsley leaves

1 In a large pan or pot, sauté the onion in the oil until golden.
2 Add the cabbage, carrots and a little water. Cover and simmer until the carrots and cabbage are soft, about 10 minutes.
3 Add the vinegar, hot pepper, garlic and scallions.  Add salt to taste and simmer for another 2 minutes.

Serve hot, garnished with parsley.

Note:  Adding the garlic at the last stages of cooking will give the dish a nice kick.  If you prefer less intensity, add the garlic along with the cabbage and carrots.
