The Best Fried Cabbage Recipe – Delicious Comfort Food

Delicious Rosemary-Spiked Fried Cabbage

Our sustainable living goal moved up a notch this year, as we progressed from growing more than just windowsill herbs to growing our own fruit and vegetables. And our vegepod worked a treat! We planted last Autumn and reaped the benefits immediately with fresh herbs and veg on demand. And from spring and early summer we basked in the glory of harvest time. From spring onions and garlic to swiss chard and cabbage grown within our vegepod, to mange tout, baby potatoes and apples grown in pots nearby.

But what’s the point growing vegetables if you’re not going to eat them! This delicious fried cabbage recipe was just one way of enjoying our cabbage harvest. It’s simple, delicious and uses five simple ingredients. Inspired by Gordon Ramsay I swapped the goose fat for a good olive oil, and shallots for our home-grown spring onions.

Gordon’s stir fried cabbage recipe includes a full Savoy cabbage in which he advises to remove the core and shred. I used our home-grown leafy green Pixie cabbage and so removed the stems instead. The weight of cabbage you need really depends on how many you are cooking for. But do remember that cabbage freezes well so if you wash, slice, blanch and let cool you can freeze the extra cabbage easily for future dishes.
