Spiced Cabbage and Kale with Sweet Onions






  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil plus more as needed
  • 1 sweet onion chopped
  • 1/2 head green cabbage sliced
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 2 cups kale chopped


  1. Heat coconut oil in large pan over medium heat. Add onion and let cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add cabbage and stir occasionally. After the cabbage starts to soften, about 3-5 minutes, add turmeric, ginger powder, garlic powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cumin, sea salt, and ground pepper. Mix well to incorporate spices. Let cook until onions and cabbage are very tender. Add more oil if veggies start to dry out.
  3. Add kale and cook for another 2 minutes to let soften before serving.

    Tried this tonight. Loved it. Really wasn’t sure about putting nutmeg, ginger and cinnamon on vegetables other than pumpkin or squash, but it worked. Thanks for the recipe. I will be making this one again.

    Thank you for these recipes! Going gluten and dairy free has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and these recipes make it a little easier. :)

    What about eating goitrogens when you have Hashimotos? I thought kale, broccoli, cabbage, etc. are to be avoided when you have thyroid disease. They can be consumed sparingly, always cooked. I just avoid them because I’m not sure. Your thoughts, Dr. Myers?
