SOMETHING FOR NOTHING : Sweet & Savoury Red Cabbage

You will need:

2 red onions

1/2 a medium red cabbage

3 tablespoons low salt soy sauce

1 can diet coke

Black pepper

Fresh basil


Slice the onions and fry in some Frylight Sunflower oil until starting to soften.

Add the red cabbage and the whole can of diet coke. Allow to bubble and boil until the cabbage is cooked and soft and the liquid had reduced down quite significantly. This takes 40 minutes to an hour. Keep stirring, don't allow it to boil dry.

Add the low salt soy sauce and black pepper. Chop the basil and add to the dish.


When cooked and ready to serve, the red cabbage takes on a deep dark colouring and a caramelized texture. It has a rich and delicious flavour almost like a sweet chutney.
