Easy Garlic Cabbage and Broccoli recipe is so delicious! Very quick and easy to do and perfect as a side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas or indeed any time!
Course: Side Dish
Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 Broccoli cut in to small florets
  • 1/2 Cabbage I used Savoy
  • 5 Cloves Garlic crushed
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter or Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 Tablespoons of Boiling hot water
Instructions
  1. Shred the cabbage so it is in thin strips and cut the broccoli into small florets. (This will make it cook faster).
  2. In a saucepan of boiling water, blanch the florets and cabbage for about 5 minutes and then strain under cold running water.
  3. Meanwhile, add the butter or olive oil to a pan with the crushed garlic, and also the cabbage and broccoli.
  4. Over a medium heat, stir the ingredients in the pan making sure everything is coated with the garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Add 3 tablespoons of boiling hot water.
  5. Turn the heat down to low and cover with the pan lid and allow to cook through until tender. (approximately 10 minutes).
  6. **Tip: if you see the cabbage or broccoli is beginning to burn add a few more tablespoons of water and give it a quick stir).
  7. Serve when tender.
  8. ** You don't need to do step 2 in the instructions, however, I find it makes the vegetables much more tender and retains the lovely vivid colour when you are stir frying.
