I’ve posted a number of cabbage recipes on this weblog. Use the search field if .

Once I was a wee lad, my mom by no means served cabbage. Do not know why.

Adam Piggott is an effective author. He claims he has the very best cabbage recipe ever. This is:


  • 1 contemporary inexperienced cabbage
  • Salt
  • Cumin
  • Apple [cider] vinegar
  • Additional virgin olive oil.

Take away the tough outdoors leaves of the cabbage after which reduce it into quarters. Utilizing a mandoline slicer or a grater, fastidiously shave the cabbage as thinly as potential.

Now add the opposite substances within the order by which I listed them. Then combine effectively collectively and depart to sit down for a number of hours. Sure, a number of hours and the longer the higher. A minimal of 1 hour however should you can depart all of it afternoon then you’ll thank me. That is why I used to be anxious about them working out on the lunch. The cabbage will launch some fluids over this time. Verify for seasoning and olive oil earlier than serving as you’ll have so as to add a bit of extra.

His unique put up did not embody particular quantities of most substances. Adam elaborated within the feedback part:

Sure, the quantities are the difficulty right here and it’s what makes this a novel dish. Salt is the important thing. I exploit a big salt grinder which you’ll see within the final picture. I had half a cabbage for lunch and I might say that I used a superb half tablespoon of salt. I added a bit of extra on the finish. Bear in mind although with salt – you’ll be able to all the time add extra however you’ll be able to’t take any away.

I used 1 / 4 teaspoon of cumin. You are simply after a touch of the style there. A small splash of the vinegar. An excessive amount of vinegar turns into overpowering; you’ll be able to all the time add extra later should you suppose you want it. Olive oil you may give it a superb splash. Wanting on the bowl of cabbage you shouldn’t see any liquid oozing out of the underside. Should you do then you may have used an excessive amount of oil or vinegar.

You may undoubtedly refrigerate it however you do not have to. Should you do then it is best to cowl it with cling movie.

Learn Adam’s total put up. It isn’t lengthy. You will not remorse it.
