I have a head of white cabbage sitting around in the kitchen and after all that pumpkin, I wanted to eat something else. The typical cole slaw on a cold and rainy day was not my first choice, so I went through the internet to find some ideas. On Pinterest I got lucky and used the basic recipe and added some of my twists, out came a very tasty slightly warm salad, delicious.
200 g cabbage
2 large potatoes
2 spring onions
2 cloves of garlic
2 bay leaves
1 tsp caraway seeds
150 ml home made veg stock
salt and pepper
50 g creme fraiche
1 tbsp sherry vinegar
2 tbsp olive oil
Peel single leaves off the cabbage, cut out half of the hard middle bit and place a couple of leaves over another and roll into a cigar. Chop into 1/2 cm strips and wash them.
Cook the potatoes as they are until not too soft.
Peel the shallots and garlic and chop them with the spring onions.
Heat up the water with the veg stock- you can use a cube!
In the olive oil fry off the onion, garlic mix until a bit tender.
Add the cabbage and the caraway seeds and give them a couple of minutes with the onions.
Add the stock and the bay leaves, stir and cover with a lid.
Reduce the heat and cook for 15 minutes.
Drain the potatoes and let them sit in cold water for 5 minutes, then peel and cut into bite size chunks.
Chop the dill and mix the creme fraiche with the vinegar and the celery seed.
Take some of the liquid from the pan, it will water down the salad, then mix everything together.
