Creamed Savoy cabbage

Side Serves 4 20 min
This simple, creamy, almost instant vegetarian recipe goes well with most main dishes. There's no need to be too exact with the proportions – try omitting the carrots and celeriac and adding in a few cloves of garlic for a different effect. For a lighter, tangier finish, use crème fraîche instead of cream.


  • 2 large carrots, diced
  • ½ celeriac, peeled and diced
  • 1 Savoy cabbage, quartered, core removed, and shredded
  • 275ml double cream
  • salt and pepper


Prep time: 10 min
Cooking time: 10 min
  • Step 1

    Blanch the carrots and celeriac in boiling salted water for 2 minutes. Remove and refresh in iced water.
  • Step 2

    Blanch cabbage for 1 minute and refresh. In a large saucepan, reduce the cream by half, then mix in vegetables. Season to taste and cook for 1-2 minutes.
