Low Carb German Red Cabbage. When I was a kid my mom made German red cabbage for us every once in a while because it went so well with schnitzels like pork and veal but somewhere along the line the veal (baby cows) police got a hold of the market and it is almost impossible to find veal anymore-hence calves liver which we had a lot of too. I hated liver as a kid but certainly learned to love it and still do if I can get it. As far as I’m concerned, a German meal of low carb Veal/Pork/Chicken/ Schnitzel ala Holstein, or Beef Rouladen, or Pork Schnitzel coupled with Spaetzle & this red cabbage recipe is one of those perfect low carb meals, and you can get all the recipes on this site. Happy German Eating.
You know, sometimes you coulda had a V-8 but this time I caught it in time. Not only do I eat raw jicama as a side snack to dinner, I use it in all kinds of other things. It is terrific as any dip partner Creamy Smooth Guacamole and fabulous in salads like Brussels Sprouts Jicama Salad and Jicama Strawberry Cucumber Salad. and even Saucy Crunchy Peanut Salad. It is one of the best crudité veggies for dips that I know. I pretty much always either have one on the counter or cut up in the fridge so…while I bought the apple specifically to make this cabbage dish I scrapped it after seeing the jicama sitting there. I already had the group picture and just added the jicama pics. A couple of the wonderful things regarding jicama are; they have the texture of apples, a slight sweetness of their own, about ⅓ the carbs of an apple, and enough fiber to choke a dog it that’s what you want. Bottom line: I scratched the apple in the picture and used my jicama instead and now you know.
