Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon olive oil
  2. 1/2 head red cabbage, cored and thinly sliced (about 1 1/2 cups)
  3. 1 bay leaf
  4. 1/2 cup water, divided
  5. 2 teaspoons white wine (optional)
  6. 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, divided
  7. 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  9. 3 pinches ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Heat tablespoon olive oil to 12-inch skillet over medium. Add cabbage, bay leaf, and salt and pepper to taste.
