I love this dish. It came about as a mistake, trying to do a version of stuffed cabbage. I use sugarloaf cabbage because of its conical shape, sweet taste and soft texture, but if it isn’t available, you could use a small savoy cabbage. To add a little further edge to this dish, try grating some winter black truffle over it… YUM!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1/2 sugarloaf cabbage, finely shredded
1 tablespoon salt flakes
2 burrata or soft mozzarella
40g fresh breadcrumbs, toasted in the oven until golden
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
1 small handful flat-leaf parsley, washed and torn
1 tablespoon dried currants

Spiced butter

Quantity Ingredient
250g unsalted butter, softened
5 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
good pinch cayenne pepper
good pinch ground turmeric
1 teaspoon capers, rinsed and chopped
1 teaspoon mustard powder
4 anchovy fillets, chopped
1 lemon, zested and juiced

Method

  1. Put the cabbage in a bowl, mix the salt through, then leave to salt for 20 minutes. Rinse under cold running water to wash off the excess salt, then drain in a colander and set aside.
  2. Combine all the spiced butter ingredients in a food processor. Add a pinch of salt flakes, then blitz until it all comes together.
  3. Layer the cabbage out over a large serving plate.
  4. Now heat half the spiced butter in a saucepan until it crackles and turns a little brown. Dress the cabbage with the browned butter until it’s all coated. Let sit a minute, then dress again to ensure all the cabbage is coated. (Any left-over butter can be sealed up and refrigerated for several weeks, or frozen for several months to use later.)
  5. Tear the burrata all over the cabbage. In a bowl, quickly mix together the breadcrumbs, pine nuts, parsley and currants, then scatter over the cabbage. Delicious.
