Hispi cabbage stir fry 20 minutes

Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic cloves.

Remove the hard core from the Hispi cabbage, then slice the cabbage into fine strips. The easiest way to do this is to cut the cabbage into quarters, then you can finely shred each portion.

Heat a wok over a high heat and wait for it to smoke. Add a dash of neutral oil, such as sunflower.

Add the cabbage and stir occasionally for 3-5 minutes. Add the chopped onion and garlic and fry for 2 minutes more.

You can use other types of chilli sauce, and add more if you want the cabbage to be extra spicy. Enjoy your meal!
