It’s been a cabbage-centric month here at  OrganicAuthority. We’ve extolled the health benefits of organic cabbage and sauerkraut, and we’ve featured an Oktoberfest recipe for Creamy Sauerkraut with Chives.

Today’s recipe adds an Indian twist to the healthful vegetable. Each serving of Spiced Cabbage contains only 50 calories and provides 110% of your daily vitamin C requirement, as well as 3 g fiber.

The dish can be served on its own, but it pairs nicely with rice. Prep time is only 10 minutes, and all of the ingredients should be available at your local natural and organic food store.
