Easy to grow, easy to store, super healthy and very variable in the kitchen, sounds like a dream. It is and it is well known for thousands of years. But it seems to be nearly forgotten. What we talk about is one our favourite vegetable: Cabbage.
You can eat it in many ways. For example you can fill a dough with it,
eat it with pasta or pickle it.
For the filling or the pasta one way we like the cabbage much is to caramalize a spoon of brown cane sugar in sunflower oil. Then you put the chopped cabbage and fry it on high heat until all the liquid is out and the cabbage got brownish.
Put salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg and it is ready.
When you eat it with pasta, we like it the best to fry the cooked pasta a few minutes together with the cabbage. You can take any kind of pasta, we prefer a flat pasta like pappardelle.
With the pickling we right now experiment. We will tell you later more.
Have a beautiful day,
Zoé and Joshua
