This dish is a great way of getting lots of cabbage into the kids! We're frying the cabbage along with beef mince and peas and serving it with creamy mash. The recipe is designed for two days, so remember to save some mince for easy dinner tomorrow. Enjoy!


1. Peel and roughly dice the potatoes. Cook until tender in a pot of unsalted water.

2. Rinse the pointed cabbage and cut into strips. Dice the onion and finely chop garlic. Sweat both in a pot with some olive oil. Add cabbage, curry, cumin and beef mince and stir well, until the mince is nicely seared.

3. Add water and peas. Let simmer and season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Drain the potato water into a bowl - you'll need it in a minute! Mash the potatoes with a whisk, add butter, and stir until melted.

5. Add milk and potato water, until the consistency is like thick porridge, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Be careful not to overwork the mash - especially if using an electric whisk. It can make the consistency a bit weird and rubbery..! Tilsæt mælk og kogevand, til konsistensen er som tyk havregrød og smag til med salt og peber. Pas på med at piske for meget - f.eks. hvis du bruger en elpisker. Det kan gøre konsistensen lidt sær og gummiagtig..!

6. Serve the dish in deep plates and top with chilli sauce... Or ketchup, for the youngest palates. Enjoy!


Tasks for younger kids in the kitchen: Let your kids dice the potatoes and cut cabbage into strips.

Extra flavour: If you want to jazz up the flavour, add more herbs and spices. Such as oregano or thyme, and feel free to sprinkle fresh or dried chilli on top.
