Seasonal local food recipe No 78: Savoy cabbage and coriander soupPosted on January 14th, 2011 No comments
From Sarah Raven’s Garden Cookbook. Based on a recipe by Irish chef Denis Cotter, she says it ‘has lots of different flavours, with a lovely after-bite.’
Preparation and cooking: 20 minutes
½ savoy cabbage (about 400g)
2 tbsp olive oil
2 red or 4 green chillies, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
about 5cm fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp coriander seeds, crushed
800ml good vegetable stock
400ml tin of coconut milk
bunch of fresh coriander, chopped (optional)
juice of 3 limes
salt and black pepper
Finely chop the onions and very finely shred the cabbage. Heat the oil in a pan, add the cabbage and onion and cook over a moderate heat for a couple of minutes before adding the chillies, garlic, ginger and coriander seeds. Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until the onion and cabbage are tender but still have a bite to them.
Bring the stock to the boil in a separate pan and add it to the vegetables. Simmer for 5 minutes, then add the coconut milk, half of the fresh coriander (if using), the lime juice and finally salt and pepper.
Serve the soup with extra coriander to taste.
NOTE: chopped parsley could be substituted for the coriander.Seasonal local food recipes camel community supported agriculture, cornwall, recipe, soup, veg boxes, vegetable boxes
