chop up some bacon, and fry in a little butter. add the cabbage, shredded, and sautee.

Mix it with mashed potato for bubble and squeak?

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Sat 18-Oct-08 17:32:12

The idea in the recipe sounds really tasty, might have that with a lentil bake for tea tomorrow. Thankyou!

I make a layer 'cake' with it - with bacon (but could leave that out), cheese and sliced potato. Will try to find recipe - it was a Paul Rankin Irish thing.

But stir fry healthier!

fry it up with bacon in the wok with some onions, delish!

mumhadenough Sat 18-Oct-08 17:39:39

Ooops sorry, thats not veggie blush

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Sat 18-Oct-08 17:48:45

Hmm, think we might have a bit of bacon left, don't know if DP will sacrifice it for cabbage though! grin Might try bubble and squeak as well as there'll be plenty left. Thanks.

MrsNM that sounds delicious! mumhadenough, we're not actually veggie, but DD and I are eating only a small amount of meat as she doesn't like it and it saves money too. So a wee bit of bacon is all right smile

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 18-Oct-08 17:54:28

PestoFangsLookGoodOnMeMonster Sat 18-Oct-08 17:56:46

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Sat 18-Oct-08 17:57:47

Am bfing but DD is 14 months so not much need for that anymore grin That made me lol though.

I love a Madhur Jaffrey cabbage and peas recipe, which unfortunately I can't post as I'm not at home. Basically shred cabbage into long strips. Put a little oil in frying pan and cook cumin seeds for a few seconds until brown. Add cabbage and fry for a bit, add in peas. Add approx 1 tsp ground cumin, 1tsp ground coriander, half tsp tumeric, some finely chopped green chili (optional) and 2 tsps sugar. Fry gently until soft, add 2 tsps garam masala, stir and serve.

colcannon? tis delish

Shred it, put a big knob of butter on top, and a good grating of fresh nutmeg. Put a bit of water in the bottom of the pan, so it steams, and drain and serve it when the butter melts. Some of the butter ends up in the water you drain off, but you still get the buttery taste, and the cabbage is still crisp.

This made my children like cabbage.

stick it in your bra if you get mastitis

otherwise :
shred it, stick it in a pan with a tablespoon of water
steam for 5 mins
add so crispy bacon (cooked earlier) then stir in some cream
