If it was sloppy it was probably boiled rather than stir-fried or steamed. Maybe boil it with salt and drizzle with oil? :/

The best cabbage I ever had was in Africa. The cook said it was done in the Zulu style and I've tried to find the recipe ever since but can't

I don't know, the cook herself wasn't a Zulu but I think she meant it was in the traditional Zulu style of cooking.



It was in a sauce. Not spicy, quite sweet. The cabbage was very soft. It was over a year ago and I only had it once so I don't remember very much except that it was awesome.

When I think "sloppy" and "laundered" with regard to cabbage, I don't think of raw, uncooked cabbage.



I think of it being boiled.



If you want it crunchy and crispy, Nag, then yes go raw.

My mom used to make sweet n sour cabbage that would have the "feel" that your talking about. It was saute'd in oil, then she added sugar & vinegar. She used to add bacon to it, that I'm sure could be omitted or substituted for something more suitable.

just cabbage that is a little bit soft and has some oil and probably some salt



if being put in the fridge it will not get soft i assume



the second one is without oil - just a lot of dissolved sugar and some kind of vinager



and the third can be like the first but with orange dress



if cabbages were little i would have eat them as snack

the sprouts are bitter



its all for a good cause - making my cra*y avocado sandwiches little less worse



avocado is boring - going to a supermarket to buy bread and pasta is boring - trying to find non dariy cream is boring - and making a bad spaghetti is boring



but eating a greek salad out of the us is not boring

can you get brussels sprouts there? they are like baby cabbages, and they're not bitter if you eat them raw- they're peppery.

you could make your own cream by soaking cashew nuts (not roasted or salted ones) until they are soft, then blending them with a bit of water (and some sugar syrup if you want a sweet cream). its very good.

alder made the shreded cabbage taste like hot dogs and strongly smell like

it is a cool idea - to cook cabage and then smoke it and eat it with those bad hot dogs



i plan to try to smoke rice before cooking it but i dont know if i can somehow make the rice to absorb the smoke

i want to try to make it with tomato paste as a very thick rice 'soup'



today i was eating a lot of this that isnt smoked and ive tried to add a little bit of the real ketchup (osem brand) and it came out as a nice variation



dgas ay

Don't caramel lions have a hard time hunting because they keep melting into the ground while running after antelope in the hot Serengeti sun? It's hard being a sweet king.



How did your cabbage dishes turn out, Nagemurut?
