The thanksgiving side dishes series continues. I promised a friend that I will post a number of side dishes so that you have enough option to choose from. The healthy food you want to offer. Yet it is quick and easy to make. This recipe is inspired by the Russian cuisine.
To make this recipe you will need to have the following:

- 1/2 tsp of cumin
- 1/2 tsp of black pepper
- 1/2 of green bell pepper cut in small cubes
- 1/2 tsp of date syrup
- 3 tsp virgin olive oil
Step 1: In a sauce pan, add the olive oil to medium heat. Then add the onion, garlic and stir till it turns gold. Then add the green bell peppers, carrot, cabbage and prunes to the pan. If you need to add more olive oil, do so. It is still healthy. Add another 2 tea spoons of olive oil.
Step 2: After mixing the vegetables throughly add the spices all together and mix. Pour the date syrup on top and mix. Stir on medium for 10 minutes till it is soft. Then put the heat to low and cover the pan. Let cook for another 2 more minutes. It should look similar to what in the picture. Taste and add more salt when needed.
When done, set aside to cool down. You can have this dish with zouq sauce.
