The fennel seeds really made this dish. I sautéed shredded carrot with the onion--added some nice color.

Recipe was easy and flavorful.

This was an easy, quick, very tasty recipe for using a head of cabbage. Healthy stir frying combined with a couple of spices found in most kitchens made for a great side dish.

This turned out to be really good. I love cabbage, and am always looking for new and different ways to prepare it. This was easy as could be, and it cooked up while the turkey burgers were in the broiler. I didn't have cumin seeds, so I substituted a pinch of ground cumin instead.
