Poppy and Paprika Stir-Fried Cabbage

BY : PUBLISHED : November 13th, 2013 UPDATED: August 17th, 2021

My Hungarian ancestry always brings me back to dishes like this. Simple, comforting, and easy to imagine eating around a music filled campfire. With only a few simple (power packed and very affordable) ingredients, this stunning dish is a cinch to prepare. Serve it hot or cold, delicious by itself, or with a side of roast potatoes and cashew cream it is divine. It’s smokey and colorful and filled with the power of cabbage’s cancer fighting nutrients. Be sure to saute the paprika and poppy seeds with the garlic and oil before you add the cabbage, to really release their flavors into the dish. Sprinkle with additional poppy seeds and smoked paprika just before serving and you will be one happy camper.
