Brunkål – Swedish Christmas Dish

 

20151211202901(1).JPG
Brunkål is a classic Christmas dish in southern Sweden.
The main ingredient is white cabbage and the name Brunkål (meaning brown cabbage) comes from the normally long cooking time which makes the cabbage brownish in colour.
My slightly healthier version gets it colour from traditional Nordic Christmas spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger and less from frying, as I only let it softened in a pan for about 6-7 minutes.

Fermenting Beetroot

201512112201101

I just love beetroot!
So juicy and sweet and full of iron!
Fermenting thin slices together with dill (so helpful for digestion) and red cabbage (great for detoxing) upgrades the nutrients.
The result tastes delish and goes perfect with your Christmas lunch.
If you need more iron but don’t  want to include meat beetroot are a great alternative. And if you have teenagers at home who do a lot of sports you might want to include beetroots in their diets to make sure they get enough iron.
