This is a lovely and light side dish to accompany your Sunday dinner.

Ingredients

Cabbage

2 portion(s), small, quartered

Spring Onions

6 medium, trimmed and sliced

Vegetable stock cube(s)

1 cube(s), make up to 400ml with hot water

Ground Nutmeg

teaspoons, level

Black pepper

teaspoons

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Bacon medallions, raw

4 rasher(s), snipped into pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190°C/fan oven 170°C.
  2. Trim the stalks of the cabbage to remove some of the hard core. Arrange in a shallow baking dish that has a lid, or use a roasting tin and a sheet of foil. Add the spring onions and stock. Season with nutmeg (if using) and black pepper. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  3. Five minutes before the cabbage is ready, spray a non-stick frying pan with calorie-controlled cooking spray. Add the bacon and cook until crispy. Serve 2 quarters of cabbage per person, sprinkled with the crispy bacon.
  4. Cook’s tip: Simply leave out the bacon if you are cooking for vegetarians.
