Step 1

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute carrots in hot oil until slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add onion; saute until onion is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Step 2

Season carrot mixture with turmeric, cumin, pepper, and ground ginger; stir and let the seasonings toast until fragrant, about 1 minutes.

Step 3

Stir cabbage and garlic into the carrot mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage wilts, about 10 minutes.

Step 4

Stir potatoes into the cabbage mixture. Pour water into the pot and stir. Bring the liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer, stirring every 10 minutes, until the potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes.

We really enjoyed this dish! I used a salt substitute and finished it off with lemon juice to brighten the flavours. Just before serving we had the second power outage of the day so I was not able to take a photo. Thank you for sharing Nat! Made for Pick Me! tag game.
