Ingredients

  • 1 Savoy cabbage (approximately 500g), finely shredded
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 200g pack smoked back bacon lardons
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

Method

  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the shredded Savoy cabbage and cook for about 1 minute. Drain and refresh under cold running water straight away to stop the cabbage cooking any more and to help it keep its lovely fresh green colour.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan and cook the bacon lardons for 3 to 4 minutes over a medium heat until they are golden brown. Add the crushed garlic and cook for 1 more minute, stirring constantly. Add the drained cabbage and stir-fry for 2 minutes until the mixture is heated through. Check the seasoning and serve at once.
