Ingredients

  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • 25 oz. 700 g green cabbage
  • 1¼ cups 300 ml heavy whipping cream
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup 120 ml fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ ½ lemon, the zest

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start by shredding the cabbage using a food processor or slice it thinly using a sharp knife.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium high heat. Add the cabbage and sauté for a few minutes until soft and golden brown around the edges.
  3. Add heavy whipping cream and let the cabbage simmer until the cream is reduced. Lower the heat towards the end.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add parsley and lemon zest before serving.

Tip!

If you want to reduce your dairy consumption you can swap out the heavy whipping cream and use coconut milk or coconut cream.

Note on Gremolata

Gremolata is an Italian condiment with lemon zest, parsley, and (usually) finely chopped garlic. In this case, we have omitted the garlic, as the green cabbage and the heavy whipping cream's sweetness are better exposed this way. But if you love garlic—go for it!

    I tried this for the first time tonight. It was delicious. I didn't have parsley or lemon zest but I added 2tsp of whole grain mustard for a little zip. Even my husband enjoyed it and he is picky.

    Had to modify some things, and added some ground beef, like a casserole. It was tasty though, almost tastes like noodles!

    All these recipes are awesome One way or another. Regular and simple ingredients that we have at home. I'm happy with this kind of diet. Has been so far the best and I've lost about 8# in a month. Not feeling hungry at all and always something different to make and enjoy. Very pleased with it and the fact of not spending hundreds of dollars in shakes, pills and bars. On my way!! Love this web site. Found it today and following it.

    I didn't have any lemon zest but sprinkled a bit of real lemon crystals on top. This is real comfort food!! I may try the same with kale.
