Vegan Purple Cabbage



  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 green apples, peeled, cored, shredded or diced
  • 1 medium head red cabbage, shredded
  • 2/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup pickling spice, wrapped and tied up tightly in cheesecloth (you’ve now made a ‘spice bag’)
  • 5 cups water
  • 3 Tbsp dry red wine
  • 2 Tbsp red currant jelly (you can also use black)
  • parsley (optional)


  • Set heat to medium. In a soup pot, heat oil and add apples and onions and saute about 5 minutes, until softened.
  • Meanwhile in a large bowl, toss cabbage with red wine vinegar, sugar and salt. Add to the pot with bay leaf, spice bag and water.
  • Bring to boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1-2 hours until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Remove bay leaf and spice bag, and add wine and jelly.
  • Put parsley on top. Mix well and serve hot.
