Serves 4 to 6
Onions and cabbage contain sulfur compounds that are immune-enhancing and tumor-inhibiting.

  • 1 onion
  • 1 head red cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds, briefly ground in a coffee grinder
  1. Thinly slice the onion and the cabbage (or have your food processor do it for you). Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the onion and cabbage.
  2. Cook on low-medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, add the garlic and caraway seeds. Serve warm.
