Tundra Cabbage – Arctic Veg?

We’ve been having crazy spring weather lately with beautiful sunshine one minute and pouring rain the next. Those latter moments have been making us think of cabbage and how we haven’t had them in the boxes for awhile. And we have the wonderfully named tundra cabbage…not from the Arctic of course but from Lincs.

Italian sausage and cabbage stew is a tried and tested favourite. Otherwise 12 ways to make cabbage sexy has some great ideas including making not-so-traditional Korean tacos, Japanese okonomiyaki pancakes and Russian sweet and sour cabbage soup. Or check out 20 recipes where cabbage is king for inspirations like cabbage slaw, roasted or grilled cabbage (dead easy but tasty), or the pickled variety such as sauerkraut, kimchi and Asian pickled cabbage.

For those of you with celeriac, definitely check out Jamie Oliver’s smashed celeriac, so beautifully simple yet so tasty, especially if you caramelise those cubes a little to really bring out the sweetness. Add a squeeze of lemon too if you like your veg a little zingy.
