Add wine (or beer) to skillet and scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan (the liquid with boil off. that's ok). Add a small splash of oil to the pan along with the onions, garlic, and carrots. Mix well. Sauteé for approximately 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the cauliflower florets, salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Mix well and cover with lid.

Add the apples to the skillet and mix well. Cover again and cook for an additional 2 minutes before adding the cabbage and fresh thyme. Mix and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Taste for salt and season as you see necessary. Continue to cook until vegetables reach desired tenderness.
