Chèvre Lemon Cabbage


I don't know about you, but whenever I buy a head of cabbage, I end up having to throw some of it out just because I can't think of one more thing to make with it. To remedy that, here's a recipe that's perfect for a little leftover cabbage - or by all means, buy it for this recipe! I have another cabbage recipe lined up as well, so check back in a few days. And check out these ones too:

Chicken Cabbage Salad with Feta
Cole Slaw

This is a good side dish - I like it with just a slice of meat, steak or pork chops of some kind. It's very flavorful and complex, even though it has so few ingredients.

Chèvre Lemon Cabbage
Serves 2-4 depending on what you serve with it

150 g chèvre cheese
About 5 dl (2 cups) shredded cabbage
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
fresh coriander

Crumble the chèvre into a bowl, and add lemon, oil, salt, pepper and coriander.

Blanch the cabbage for one minute in boiling water, drain very well and then add to the rest of the ingredients. Toss well and serve straight away!

Recipe in Swedish:
Vitkål med chèvre och citron

Hi Anne, I am a cabbage fan but tend to just steam it and serve it with a little butter, seasoning and caraway seeds, or for savoy, a little lemon butter. But this caught my eye (and my tastebuds) immediately. I will definitley be trying both recipes. thanks

Hi Anne. Love your blog by the way - I read it every single day! I know exactly what you mean about the "always-leftover-cabbage problem". I will definitely be trying this one! I actually have an amazing chinese cabbage and crisp noodle recipe that I plan to blog about soon. I will keep you posted!

This is a recipe I'm going to try also. I blogged about cabbage awhile ago, but love to find new recipes to try and this one is what I was looking for! Thanks.

After making bulgogi a few nights ago I am currently experiencing the leftover-cabbage dilemma as we speak. You recipe is exactly what I needed!

Verkar smaskens du, måste testa det vid tillfälle! Vi äter alldeles för lite vitkål här i huset, jag gillar det, men vad ska man haaa det till, liksom. :D Dessutom har jag fått för mig att det är nyttigt!

PS. Får man kommentera i din blogg 1. på svenska och 2. om man inte själv är matbloggare? ;D

Feline - du får kommentera på precis vilket språk du vill. (Eh, fast om du vill att jag ska förstå så är engelska och svenska att rekommendera!) :)
