Steamed Green Cabbage

Steamed Greens are delicious as well as being a terrific source of fibre...


  • Green Cabbage
  • White Wine Vinegar (1tsp)
  • Olive Oil (dash)

Chop the Greens into 1cm slices and wash really thoroughly

Heat some water in a pan and prepare to steam them… you can use a sieve over a pan with a lid on top, or a proper steamer – whatever you prefer

Give the Cabbage maybe 3 minutes – you’re after cooked but not too wilty – you want a little bite and crunch left

Drizzle with 1 or 2 teaspoons of White Wine or Cider Vinegar (decide based on what you are eating – Cider Vinegar is really good with pork… You could also use Lemon)

Also add some Salt, Pepper and a very short drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (more of a fling than a drizzle)

Toss carefully and serve immediately.  Is great with a steaming bowl of hearty stew – or the next day fried with some leftover mash
