Slimming Word Red Cabbage Slow Cooker Recipe

Autumn is creeping in and its that time of year when Sunday wouldn’t be complete without a roast dinner. There is nothing better than lighting the log burner and enjoying a chilled Sunday afternoon as dinner cooks away in the kitchen. Additionally, no roast dinner is complete without a generous helping of Slow Cooker Red Cabbage.


Slimming Red Cabbage In The Slow Cooker

The challenge for me has been finding a Slimming World Red Cabbage slow cooker recipe. Not because I religiously follow slimming world. More that I try to ensure I substitute recipes where I can to live a balanced lifestyle.

As a result, this sweet slimming world red cabbage recipe is deliciously sweet and tasty but only has 1.5 syns per portion. This is a game changer for me, as the recipe I have been using for years has a LOT of butter in. Now don’t get me wrong it tastes AMAZING. But its nice to have a low fat healthy alternative.

slow cooker red cabbage recipe


  • 1 medium red cabbage
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 apple ( I used a pink lady apple)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • 3 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tbsp water


  1. Chop the cabbage by cutting into quarters and discarding the out leaves and hard inner core, then slice into strips
  2. Halve the onion and chop into strips
  3. Remove the core and dice the apple
  4. Add all the ingredients into the slow cooker
  5. Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on high for 5 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.


If you don’t want to cook in the slow cooker, or do not have the time place in an oven proof dish and cover with foil, cooking this way is quicker. I would expect it to take 2 hours in the oven.

Cook in batches a freeze in freezer bags for dinner ready portions, which can be reheated in a pan or the microwave.
