5-Minute Healthy Sautéed Red Cabbage

If you are used to eating green cabbage, I encourage you to try the special flavor and nutrients found in red cabbage as part of your Healthiest Way of Eating. It tastes great and you will also benefit from its rich concentration of health promoting vitamins A, C, and K. Enjoy.

5-Minute Healthy Sautéed Red Cabbage Prep and Cook Time:5 minutes


  • 4 cups red cabbage, shredded
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 5 TBS low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • Mediterranean Dressing
  • 3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 medium clove garlic, chopped or pressed
  • Sea salt, and pepper to taste
  • Optional:
  • 2 TBS grated ginger
  • 1 TBS sesame seeds
  • 5 drops soy sauce
  • 1 TBS chopped cilantro
  • few drops of rice vinegar/rice wine


  1. Quarter cabbage, slice into 1/4-inch strips, and let sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out the hidden health benefits of cabbage.
  2. Chop or press garlic and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle cabbage with 1 TBS lemon juice before cooking to prevent it from turning blue.
  4. Heat 5 TBS broth over medium heat in a stainless steel skillet. When broth begins to steam, add cabbage and cover. Sauté for no more than 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss cabbage with the dressing ingredients and any of the optional ingredients you desire while it is still hot. (Mediterranean Dressing does not need to be made separately.)

Introduction to Recipe Rating System Chart

In order to better help you identify recipes that feature a high concentration of nutrients for the calories they contain, we created a Recipe Rating System. This system allows us to highlight the recipes that are especially rich in particular nutrients. The following chart shows the nutrients for which 5-Minute Healthy Sautéed Red Cabbage is either an excellent, very good, or good source (below the chart you will find a table that explains these qualifications). If a nutrient is not listed in the chart, it does not necessarily mean that the recipe doesn't contain it. It simply means that the nutrient is not provided in a sufficient amount or concentration to meet our rating criteria. (To view this recipe's in-depth nutritional profile that includes values for dozens of nutrients - not just the ones rated as excellent, very good, or good - please use the link below the chart.) To read this chart accurately, you'll need to glance back up to see the ingredients used in the recipe and the number of serving sizes provided by the recipe. Our nutrient ratings are based on a single serving. For example, if a recipe makes 4 servings, you would be receiving the nutrient amounts listed in the chart by eating 1/4th of the combined ingredients found in the recipe. Now, returning to the chart itself, you can look next to the nutrient name in order to find the nutrient amount it offers, the percent Daily Value (DV%) that this amount represents, the nutrient density that we calculated for this recipe and nutrient, and the rating we established in our rating system. For most of our nutrient ratings, we adopted the government standards for food labeling that are found in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's "Reference Values for Nutrition Labeling."
