Curried Cabbage

Erin, a former guest farmer, contributed the following recipe. She says, “My wonderful spicy cabbage recipe which was adapted from farmer john’s cookbook – which in his book was adapted from another curry book. Serve hot, enticing your dinner guests to eat something made with cabbage other than coleslaw.”

Curried Cabbage


  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cabbage
  • Fresh ginger medium chunk, peeled and grated or finely chopped
  • Curry spices e.g. cumin, ginger, cayenne pepper, turmeric, coriander
  • 2 Tbsp coconut milk
  • Green onions diced (optional)
  • Tomato diced (optional)
