This month's SOS Kitchen Challenge features none other than the trusty apple, a harbinger of autumn. For my first apple recipe of the month, I wanted to make something that walked the line between sweet and savory. I decided on a mix of apples, turnips, and cabbage, spiked with onion and caraway seeds. It is very much inspired by Scandanavian and German food; what can I say, I'm influenced by my cultural heritage. It is aromatic and full of flavor, and I am convinced that caraway, apples, and cabbage were absolutely made for each other. Despite the fact that this combination makes vegetables almost sinfully delicious, you needn't worry - no sinning here.
If you want to participate in this month's SOS Kitchen Challenge, it's easy! Just check out the kick-off post for all the rules, and submit your apple recipe to the Linky at the bottom of this post. You can submit recipes until the end of the month, when Ricki (my challenge co-host) and I will post a round-up highlighting our favorites. Awesome.
Apple, Turnip & Cabbage Hash
yield 4 side servings
- 2 organic apples, cored and diced
- 2 large turnips, peeled and diced
- 1 medium sweet onion, diced
- 2 cups finely chopped purple cabbage
- 2 Tbsp olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, or butter
- 2 tsp caraway seeds
- pinch allspice
- umeboshi plum vinegar, to taste
Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium heat, then add onion and stir. Saute 2-3 minutes, then add turnips, stir to coat with oil, and saute for for 5-8 minutes, until turnips just start to turn slightly golden. Then add apple, cabbage, allspice, and caraway seeds. Saute until apple and cabbage are softened, stirring often. Then crank up the heat and saute for about 5 minutes to give everything a nice little brown edge. Season to taste with umeboshi plum vinegar, and serve.
