Recently I’m in the habit of going to the farmers’ market every Saturday and buying lots of random veg to cook. On top of this, my flatmates have a “lucky dip” box of veg delivered every Tuesday so I’m often faced with new veg to learn about. With kale being on the way out now, I’m sad I can’t make my kale chips anymore and need a new thing to obsess over.
Enter the savoy cabbage.
Savoy cabbage can be a little daunting and, well, no one really likes cabbage, right? But this is a thing of beauty! This is a recipe my mum often uses and it’s one of my favourite things.
1. Take some bacon and chop it up into little bits.
2. Fry the bacon in a little oil.
3. Rip the cabbage leaves until they are in small-ish strips.
4. Once the bacon is cooked well, add the cabbage and drizzle a little more oil in the pan.
5. Fry it all, turning it over often, until the cabbage has reduced right down and it cooked through.
