Curried Cabbage with Cashews

This simple recipe from New Hampshire farmer Tracie Smith is so tasty and warming that it's become a favorite in our own kitchens. Serve with whole-wheat tortillas fried in a pan with a little olive oil—a quick alternative to Indian chapati bread.


1/4 cup butter or olive oil
1/3 cup raw (unroasted, unsalted) cashews
3 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
1 tablespoon cumin seed
1 small (about 1-1/4-pound) cabbage, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In a large (12- to 14-inch) frying pan over medium heat, melt butter (or heat oil).

Add cashews, ginger, and cumin and cook, stirring often, until cashews and ginger are golden and fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Add cabbage and turmeric and cook, stirring often, until tender, about 10 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.
