How to use up leftover savoy cabbage

  • Bubble and squeak
    Roughly shred leftover cabbage and boil for 3-4 minutes, then drain. Heat a knob of butter in a large frying pan. Fry 2 chopped onions and a garlic clove until soft, add the cabbage and fry for a few minutes longer. Add leftover (or shop-bought) mashed potato, mix well, then leave for 3-4 minutes to form a golden crust on the bottom. Turn the mix over and fry for 3-4 minutes until golden on that side, too.
  • Creamy savoy cabbage
    Boil finely shredded cabbage for 2 minutes until just tender, drain and pat dry. Gently heat a knob of butter in a medium pan with a splash of double cream. When the butter has melted and the cream is steaming, stir into the cabbage with 1 tbsp wholegrain mustard. Season with salt and pepper and a pinch of grated nutmeg.
