Spicy Sautéed Cabbage, pan fried green beans, watercress & cooling chilli yogurt 🥬

Am I the only one who gets so inspired by what’s going bad in the fridge? 😂 Cabbage is always one of those veggies that I buy and have big plans for but then forget about until it’s starting to look a bit sad 😔 I know, I’m horrible putting poor cabbage in the corner!

But seriously, it’s so versatile and carries flavour so well… it also lasts like… forever in the fridge so that’s a major plus! (Especially for someone like me who gets too excited grocery shopping 😆


-1-2 tbsp sesame oil
-1 onion
-1-2 chillis, minced (I used fingerling, adjust for spice preferences)
-1 knob ginger, grated
-2 cloves garlic, minced (optional
-1/4 tsp mustard seeds
-1/4 tsp cumin seeds
-1/4 tsp coriander seed
-1/4 tsp cinnamon
-1 whole white cabbage, cut into ribbons
-1/2 tsp cumin
-1/4 tsp curry powder/garam masala
-lemon zest
-1/4 cup full fat/Greek yoghurt
-2 stalks mint leaves, finely minced
-1 green chilli, sliced (optional)
-salt to taste
-A handful of water cress
-lemon juice to taste

1. Heat the sesame oil in a large pan or wok, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and coriander seeds until they begin to pop. Add the cinnamon and fry until fragrant (be careful not to burn). Toss in the onions, chilli, ginger and garlic if using. Sauté until onions are translucent.

2. Add the cabbage, cumin and curry powder. Cook stirring regularly, adding about 2 or so tablespoons of water at a time if needed so that the cabbage doesn’t burn. Cook until cabbage is tender and fully cooked. Grate lemon zest on top when finished, add a squeeze of lemon juice if desired.

3. Meanwhile, combine the mint and yoghurt (and chilli- optional) in a separate bowl. Allow diners to use the yogurt on top of the sautéed cabbage as desired and toss with watercress 🤗

** I served mine with green beans, which were just fried in a pan with sesame oil, curry seasoning and lemon in the pan 🤗 🍋
