  • Seasonal local food recipe No.365 – Suspiciously delicious cabbage

    Posted on August 6th, 2017 Janet No comments

    Looking for a way to use this week’s cabbage I came across The 10 best cabbage recipes  in The Guardian.  Suspiciously delicious cabbage leapt out, partly because of the name, and indeed it was delicious (as well as being very easy to make)!  I served it with grilled sausages.

    Serves 2-4

    Preparation time: 10 minutes
    Cooking time: 40 minutes

    Ingredients
    2 tbsp butter
    1 medium onion, finely chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 heaped tbsp fresh ginger, grated
    1 medium cabbage, cored and finely shredded
    200ml double cream
    salt and black pepper to taste

    Method
    In a very large pan, heat the butter over a medium heat until it is melted and starting to bubble a little.  Stir in the onion and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes, until softened.  Stir in the ginger and cook for about a minute.

    Then add the cabbage, stirring well to coat it with the butter and other flavours.  Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15-20 minutes until the cabbage is soft and caramelised. Turn the heat down to low and stir in the cream, making sure to scrape any browned bits up from the pan bottom.

    Cover and continue to cook over a low heat for about 10 minutes. Uncover, add salt and pepper to taste. Then cook for a few more minutes, stirring once or twice, to let some of the liquid evaporate. Adjust the seasonings and serve.
