Red Cabbage Plays Well with Apples

By Posted on

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.
