An easy and versatile side dish that will ensure you love your greens and eat them all up! 

Course: Side Dish
Servings: 2
Author: Louise-Claire Cayzer
  • 1 medium cabbage (roughly 700g) or equivilant other greens:
  • 4-5 cloves garlic finely sliced
  • 1 medium chilli, seeds removed and chopped optional! Can also use mild chilli powder
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • pinch salt
  1. Core the cabbage & thinly slice it (Or slice your other greens- if using brocolli cut into florets!). Have the garlic & chilli chopped & ready. 

  2. Heat your frying pan or wok but DO NOT add the oil.

  3. Add the cabbage (or other greens) to the pan and let cook for a few minutes. They should start to blacken & char a little (this is good! You want that!- but you might want to turn the heat extractor on!) 

  4. Now, add the oil, garlic & chilli, toss around and clamp the lid on. 

  5. Cook for another 5 minutes or so- the greens will sort of saute/steam down.

  6. Season with salt & serve! 

Recipe Notes

Options: You can do any/all of these to change up your delicious greens! 

  • Add a few slices of lemon when you add the garlic
  • Add a scant 1/4 glass of white wine - just after you add in the garlic
  • Use a teaspoon of stock powder (boullion) alongside the garlic
  • Toast some almonds or sesame seeds & sprinkle over to serve
