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.
In a deep skillet, saute chopped garlic in the olive oil on medium-low heat for 1 minute.
Add paprika and poppy seeds and saute 1 minute more until fragrant.
Add sliced red cabbage, stir, and cover pan. Cook for 5-7 minutes until wilted and tender.
Season with salt, black pepper, and additional paprika and poppy seeds if desired. Enjoy!
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.
