“Cabbage and Carrots are sauteed with fragrant ginger and garlic. This is usually served as a side dish to stews in Guyana and the Caribbean.”
1⁄2 head cabbage, finely shredded
1 carrot, shredded
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1⁄2 medium onion, finely chopped
1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ginger, crushed
1⁄8 teaspoon black pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon white vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil
Heat canola oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until soft. Add ginger and garlic, cook for about 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add carrots, cabbage, salt and black pepper; Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Next add the vinegar and stir to combine. Remove from heat. Serve warm.
Notes: I prefer the cabbage to be crisp but if you prefer it to be softer you can add about 1/4 vegetable or chicken stock, and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until it is the texture that you desire. If using stock, be sure to adjust the amount of salt in the dish since stocks do tend to have sodium.
Scrambled Eggs With Caramelized Shallots
Prep Time 0:10 Cook Time 0:25
Recipe Serves 2-3
You can make this recipe more interesting by adding chopped dried mushrooms or dried tomatoes that have been rehydrated in warm water for 15 minutes.
1 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 medium shallots, peeled and sliced thinly
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1/8 cup half-and-half
3 tbsp cream cheese
salt and pepper to taste
fresh herbs, chopped (I like basil or parsley)
Heat butter and extra virgin olive oil in a medium frying pan over low heat. When butter has melted, add shallots and allow to caramelize, stirring only occasionally. This should take about 20 minutes.
While shallots cook, whisk eggs with half-and-half.
Once shallots have caramelized, increase heat to medium and add egg mixture. Stir occasionally. Once eggs are nearly done, drop the cream cheese in small globs over the eggs. Stir gently to incorporate.
Once eggs have finished cooking, season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve eggs garnished with fresh herbs.
