Boiled Cabbage

Cabbage may be cooked either in plenty of boiling salted water, or placed into a saucepan with a minimum amount of water — the conservative method is outlined below. The former method is fast losing flavor as the vegetable becomes watery and rather tasteless and loses much of its vitamins during cooking.

Makes: 10 portions. Cooking time: 8-12 minutes.


— 2 kg prepared cabbage
— 20 grams salt
— ¾ liters boiling water


(1) Place the prepared cabbage into the boiling salted water, cover with a lid and boil steadily until cooked.

(2) Drain the cabbage in a colander.

(3) Serve in a vegetable dish neatly arranged.
