Thankfully my memories of cabbage are of coleslaw’s at summer barbies or Dad eating his German sausages with sauerkraut. As an adult I have discovered the Asian influence adding cabbage and it many varieties to stir fries. It really makes a meal go further, is low fat and very very tasty!
Garlic and cabbage are a match made in heaven. The recipe below is easy, really moreish, a great side dish or even a weekend lunch with crusty bread and beer.
You will need
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side
1/2 Savoy cabbage (or regular)
4 cloves garlic
1 cup of chopped ham or bacon
2 Tbsp wholegrain mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 fresh lime for garnish and a bit of zest
How to make
Roughly chop the cabbage
Slice/dice the onions
chop the garlic cloves
In a large pan or wok saute the garlic and onions until soft
Add the cabbage and stir fry until wilted. (It may look like a lot of cabbage but it reduces when it wilts)
Add salt, pepper and mustard and stir through.
Place in a serving dish.
In the same pan add more oil and quickly cook the bacon or ham until crispy.
Toss through the cabbage.
Place back in the serving dish and serve with half a lime per person for garnish.
