Braised Savoy Cabbage & Lentils, Mash Potato and Roasted Apples

I went to the farmers market this weekend and picked up a huge savoy cabbage for one dollar! I was not sure what to do with it, but a little research and Wa-la, a yummy supper.

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion- sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic-minced
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp dried mustard
  • 1 cup of dried brown lentils-washed
  • water- to cover
  • 2 apples-peeled and shredded
  • 1/4 of a cabbage- sliced thinly
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • freshly ground pepper  (cabbage loves pepper!)
  • sea salt

In a large saute pan heat oil, add onions saute for 3-4 minutes, add garlic, continue to saute adding spices. Add lentils and cover with water bring to a boil, add cabbage and apple cover with lid and simmer on low heat until cabbage is soft.  Season with vinegar, syrup, pepper and salt. Keep lid on and simmer for 20 minutes, checking the water, adding when necessary

Roasted apples: peeled and quarter apples, sprinkle with cane sugar, and place on a pan in a 375 oven for 10-15 minutes
