About Me

We moved out to Portugal to live a frugal but better , simpler and peaceful life, our house is a very basic, semi ruin, up in the hills outside Figueiro Dos Vinhos, where we work our land, enjoy life with each other and our dogs, and hope to make the smallest carbon footprint we can,

Frugal Living, Recipe for cabbage leftovers..

If like us you tend to eat tons of cabbage at this time of the year, leftovers is something to deal with often... mind you Rik would eat a whole cabbage to himself... every night... he just loves it..
Take a pan of leftover cold cabbage, add, a large chopped onion, as many cooked dried beans as you like(or a jar) a good handful of broken up bread, the heavy stuff is best, a good dollop of olive oil and some salt to taste... then 5-6 thinly sliced garlic cloves, put on medium high heat and cook fast... .  till onion has softened .stirring often so it doesnt burn... Its scrummy. If you want you can add some cooked cubed leftover potatoes, I also fry off a little cubed belly pork sometimes and add that... You'll be suprised how good it is... It also works well with Turnip greens instead of cabbage...
