Use leftover braised red cabbage to top a baked potato. Finish with crème fraîche for winter comfort
How to prepare
Discard any damaged outer leaves and the central core. Make a winter salad by shredding it finely and tossing through some walnuts, chopped apple, blue cheese and tangy balsamic dressing. Or, for a classic side dish to roast dinners, chop up your red cabbage, 2 apples and 1 onion, combine with 50g butter, 1 tbsp brown sugar and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar, simmer in a heavy-bottomed pan, then turn down low to cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Keep in the fridge or a cool veg rack. It will last up to a fortnight.
