Flavorful Turmeric-Spiced Braised Cabbage is the perfect AIP side. Pair it with Turmeric Chicken & cauli rice for an Indian-inspired feast!



1 Tbsp avocado oil

1/2 medium head green cabbage, shredded (about 4 cups)

2 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 cup bone broth or water

squeeze of lime juice


Core and shred cabbage, either with a box grater, a food processor, or just by slicing thinly with a sharp knife (or buy pre-shredded cabbage).

In a large skillet with high sides, warm avocado oil over med-high heat, until glistening (but not smoking). Add shredded cabbage and sauté until just beginning to wilt, about 2 minutes.

Add all the spices and broth, stirring to combine. Cover and reduce heat to a low simmer.

Simmer until cabbage is tender (about 7-10 minutes). Add a squeeze of fresh lime juice and serve.
