Fried Savoy Cabbage, Garlic, Parsley & Chilli: You’re All Invited by Margot Henderson


Serves 4


  • 2 handfuls of fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic, chopped or grated
  • 1 tsp dried chilli (optional)
  • 2 tabs olive oil
  • 1 Savoy Cabbage, sliced thinly
  • 100ml dry white wine
  • sea salt & freshly ground black pepper


Put the parsley, garlic and chilli into a stainless steel large saucepan or casserole and add the olive oil.

Place over a low heat and fry gently for 3 – 4 mins, then add the sliced cabbage.

Watch the heat, turning it up or down as needed and stirring every so often, for a few mins.

Add the wine and 100ml water and put a lid on the pan.

Cook on a medium heat for 5 mins to steam the cabbage, then remove the lid and continue to cook for a further 30-35 mins on a low heat, until the cabbage is very tender.

If you need a little more moisture, add a splash of white wine or water.

Season with salt and pepper and serve with meat dishes.
