Red Cabbage Plays Well with Apples

Scientists and health professionals gathering at AICR’s 2011 Research Conference in Washington, DC later this week will be eating healthful meals that fit a cancer-preventive diet. This week’s Health-e-Recipe is a variation on one conference lunch item: Red Cabbage with Apples.

Simple, seasonal and delicious, the red cabbage in this recipe can also add a beautiful fall color to your table. At home, you can serve it with steamed baby carrots, spiced chicken breast, a whole-grain and unsweetened applesauce — a lineup of healthful foods that’s similar to the conference menu.

Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable along with broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower — and full of cancer-fighting phytochemical sulforaphane and other protective compounds.
