Sweet and sour red cabbage apples raisins is a delicious oriential style vegan recipe that will make about 8 adult servings as a main meal, and takes about 20 minutes to prepare and another 20 minutes to stir-fry in a wok.

This is a relatively quick and easy recipe that can also be made on the stovetop, microwave, but we prefer stir-frying in a wok. It is great as a main dish, side dish, or as a tortilla or pita stuffing.

Begin by washing, cleaning, and peeling the fresh vegetables, as needed.

Shred the cabbage, carrots and onions in a food processor or by hand, and place in the cooking vessel.

If desired, crush the garlic and add to the shredded veggies. Add the ginger and hot pepper, mix well and cook until tender. If you are stir frying in a wok or on the stovetop, stir fry in a little water. If cooking in the microwave oven, mix well after 10 minutes, and then every 5 minutes until cooked.

While the veggies are cooking, wash and core the apples, cut into pieces and place in the container of a high speed blender. Add the cider vinegar, soy sauce and corn starch, cover, and blend at high speed until the contents are smooth.

When the veggies are cooked, reduce the heat to simmer, add the sauce and mix well until the sauce thickens, and immediately remove from the heat.

Serve and enjoy either as is or surrounding a baked potato, as shown in the photo.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
