In the spirit of brave pets and brave veggies, then, I offer one of my favorite red cabbage recipes, hearty and nourishing for these brave winter nights...
Red Cabbage with Red Wine Vinegar

4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large red cabbage, sliced into thin strips
1/2 tsp caraway seeds

~ Warm the olive oil in a large pot or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until the onion begins to brown.
