WATCH: How to Make Red Cabbage in Butter and Raisins

Serve it on a mountain of fluffy rice, or next to a beautiful piece of grilled salmon.

This is a Belgian recipe that my step mother used to make on every Shabbat dinner. The look of the sautéed purple stripes, shining, covered with lemony butter, is super festive on a holiday table and can be dominant feature of your table design.

It is perfect as a side dish for a dairy, vegetarian or vegan meal. Serve it on a mountain of fluffy rice, or try it next to a beautiful piece of grilled salmon. They are such a great couple.

3.5 oz butter
