My neighbour made a lovely cabbage and potato stew with marjoram and carraway yesterday, and it was so delicious I haven't been able to get it out of my head. I am making it for dinner tonight, and will subject the whole family to a house stinking of boiled cabbage. Do I need to get a life?

I've been on a bit of a cabbage bender lately. I think because it is something we tend to have with stews and stuff in the winter (even though cabbage in the spring is better!).

Braised red cabbaged with Sunday roast
White cabbage with stew
Raw cabbage in homemade coleslaw

I'm definitely getting my 5-a-day (not all cabbage though, that would be wroooooong!).

I think it'll be quite easy to make. A savoy cabbage, sliced, and some potatoes, diced, then boiled until soft. She didn't use a huge amount of water, just enough to cover the veg.
Then,she made a roux-type thing, with flour and oil, then added it to the veggies and water when they were soft. Then, salt and pepper to taste and the marjoram and carraway seeds of course. The result was stewy and a bit thick, lovely for this cold weather.
As delicious as this was, I think I'll make the roux with butter rather than oil,add some fried onion, and will chuck some coriander seeds into the mix as well.
It's actually a Hungarian recipe, called fuzalok or something similar (perhaps someone Hungarian will come along and correct me) and can be made with any veg to hand. Fab, I love cabbage!

Oh, and served with sour cream and fresh bread.

absolutelyfabulous This type thick soup food is called "fozelek". You can make it out of almost anything, like carrots, pumpkins, beans, etc. It is a staple food in canteens with some meatballs or battered cheese.

Battered cheese!?! Now ya talking. I didn't think cheese could be even worse for you but it can. BRING IT ON.

The cabbage thing sounds fab. Agree do the roux with butter.

Sounds like a good hangover cure (though hangover farts are bad enough to be fair without adding cabbage into the equasion)
