as promised here for you the first recipe made from my lovely fresh vegetables that arrived directly at my door (do you remember fresh green delivery and chic vegetables?). here for you a very simple and extremely delicious cabbage dish that can be a contour or a main dish – depends on how hungry you are :)
i must admit that cabbage unfortunately is not very much photogenic… i mean it’s not so easy to take a beautiful picture of a boiled cabbage. it’s much easier to take pictures of a chocolate cake, sugar cookies or even fresh vegetables. anyways, if you don’t consider the aspect of this dish as inviting as some cakes pictures in posts below, i ensure you that the taste instead is just divine! trust the cook (me :)!
another good reason to try this recipe is that it is a very old and traditional one. my grandma cooks it often and i felt in love with this simple taste when i was a kid.
you will need:
- one fresh cabbage (no matter how heavy it is)
- one medium size onion
- 2 tablespoons of olive oli
- salt and pepper
- 3 tablespoons of vinegar
- 1,5 cups of water
cut the onion in small pieces and heat in a big pot togehter with olive oil. when the onion is brown (but not burned) take away from the fire. cut the cabbage in stripes (not only the leafs but the interior - hard part as well). add the cabbage to the onion and oil, add the water, cover the pot and put on the fire. make the mixture boil and reduce the fire. keep on a medium fire for about 25 minutes mixing from time to time. When the cabbage is soft take away from fire, add the salt (about 1 teaspoon) and pepper (about 1/4 teaspoon) and vinegar (if needed add more salt, pepper and vinegar than indicated in the recipe - depends on your taste and on the size of cabbage). serve hot on foggy october days!
