Green cabbage

Green cabbage is one of the most popular types of cabbage. Choose green cabbage that has crisp, bright looking leaves without any holes or discoloured patches. It should be firm and heavy for its size.

How to Use

Green cabbage is served cooked. Serve as a side dish with black pepper and butter or include in stir-fries.

How to Prepare

Remove any damaged outer leaves and cut the cabbage in half and then into quarters, cut off the hard core from each quarter at an angle. Slice and wash thoroughly

How to Cook

Cabbage can be steamed, boiled or stir-fried, it is easy to overcook cabbage and spoil its texture and flavour so cook until just tender. To steam cabbage, place in a steamer and cook for 5-10 minutes until tender but still crisp. To boil, bring a pan of water to the boil, add the prepared cabbage and cook for 5 8 minutes until tender but still crisp. To stir-fry cabbage, heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add the cabbage and stir-fry for 4-5 minutes or until tender but still crisp.
