Slimming World Slow Cooker Red Cabbage For Roast Dinner

The challenge for me has been finding a Slimming World Red Cabbage 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 it’s nice to have a low fat healthy alternative. And its nice to have a few recipes for red cabbage ready to use depending on how much time I have.

How To Make Sticky Slow Cooker Red Cabbage

Chop the cabbage by cutting into quarters and discarding the out leaves and hard inner core, then slice into strips 

Halve the onion and chop into strips

Remove the core and dice the apple 

Add all the ingredients into the slow cooker

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.
