Braised Coconut Cabbage

An interesting Tanzanian side dish, from the African Cookbook by Bea Sandler.


  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • 2 lbs cabbage, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

In a large saucepan, saute onions, and butter until onions soften.

Add cabbage and cook, stirring, until cabbage begins to lose its crispness.

Stir in unsweetened coconut milk, and season with salt and pepper.

Simmer 5 minutes or more or until cabbage and onion is done to your liking.
