Just four ingredients are needed to make this simple, yet surprisingly delicious dish. Serve it as a light main course for the family or as a side for Sunday lunch

Ingredients

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

Method

  • 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.

  • 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.
