I now have 2 red cabbages from my veg box that are sitting unused and i refuse to throw them away. The second one is about as big as my 7 yr olds head and would feed a family of 20!

I know how to make braised cabbage with apple or raisins, stewing it for hours with vinegar etc and i do love this recipe, but there is only so much braised red cabbage one can eat especially as the DS's don't like it.

I have tried stir frying it which is ok, but if anyone has any other good recipes i would love to know.

Me too Maudy! If you look on the riverford website there is a recipe for Red Cabbage and Stilton Pie, which I'm going to try. Otherwise you could make soup I guess.

I'm Riverford too! Seems to be alot of red cabbage and cauliflower at the mo. I have never tried red cabbage soup but my friend made it and said it was disgusting!

I'll have a look for the pie, thanks.

I onion, finely chopped
1.5lb red cabbage, shredded
1 cooking apple, peeled cored and chopped

oooh that sounds yum, thanks WWB. IS that recipe for 4?

WigWamBam Thu 12-May-05 13:52:08

Yes, serves 4. It freezes well too, if you want to make it in bulk. I can't vouch for the taste because I'm veggie but dh likes it.

I love stir fried cabbage, olive oil, bacon and onion. The pop it in the oven with grated cheese and breadcrumbs for a while.
Eat it with something saucy and its yummy.

I've been looking for red cabbage in tesco for the past 2 weeks but they don't have any. I can't even remember what I wanted it for now!
