Mustard Cabbage

Wholegrain mustard transforms cabbage into an inspiring side-dish. By sautťing the cabbage in butter, rather than boiling, it tastes sweeter and less cabbage-like. So this recipe might even tempt devout cabbage-haters back to the dinner table.
 
 

Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 1 cabbage - any variety other than Chinese will do
  • 1 oz butter
  • 3 tablespoons double cream
  • 1 tablespoon wholegrain mustard
 

Method

  1. Slice the cabbage finely, removing the central stem (this takes too long to cook - use it in stock if you don't want to compost it!).

  2. Wash and dry thoroughly.

  3. Melt the butter in a large pan. Do this gently, so it doesn't burn.

  4. Add the cabbage and stir well, to coat with butter. Cover the pan and allow to cook for 2-3 minutes, until the cabbage is softened.

  5. Mix together the cream and mustard and then mix with the cabbage.

  6. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


    Serve immediately.

Notes & Variations on Mustard Cabbage

Instead of the mustard, for a sweeter taste, try a tablespoon of Balsamic vinegar.
