Quick Braised Red Cabbage (v)

We’ve had a lot of red cabbages lately, and I am growing tired of them as I am the only person who seems to like them. However this recipe was tried by Lex for the first time last night and (hold the front page) he loved it. Maybe it had something to do with the fact I told him he couldn’t have any cos it had too much alcohol in it (a complete lie) but he tried it and loved it and now I can share my love of braised red cabbage with someone else…! This is a quick version as opposed to the one where you have to cook it for hours and hours…

For 4-6 people you need:
1 red cabbage, shredded finely
2 apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp veg oil
2-3 good glugs red wine vinegar
2-3 good glugs sherry
salt and pepper
2 tbsp dark brown sugar

Begin by sweating the cabbage, apple and onion in the oil for about 5 mins. Add the sugar, vinegar and sherry and cook down for 15-20 mins. Season and serve. Simples.
