My Savoy Cabbage recipe I serve you in this post.
Savoy cabbage is a great side dish for roasts, poultry and game.
In autumn and winter it goes excellently with strong sauces, it simply works and is healthy!
Did you know? The ruffled cabbage can compete with the lemon in terms of its vitamin C content.
Therefore, many raw food fans eat the tender leaves without cooking and cut the leaves finely as an insert in autumnal and winter salads.
If you want to preserve your intestines, you prefer to boil the leaves, so the cabbage is more digestible.
The savoy cabbage has many regional names: Welschkohl, Welschkraut, Savoyenkohl, Savoyer Kohl, and Schavur are well-known names.
In Swiss German it is called Wirz or Köhli and in Austria it is simply cabbage.
Please read on! Let us show you several variants of the preparation that will make you survive in all situations. Wish you good luck!
