Cabbage and Peanut Stew

The combination of cabbage and peanuts might seem a strange one, but the flavours, combined with the sweetness added by the tiny bit of sugar, work well.


  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 pointed cabbage, washed, core removed and roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp sunflower or peanut oil
  • 150g roasted peanuts (not dry roasted)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinger
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 300ml vegetable stock or water and a stock cube
  • 2 potatoes, peeled and cut into 2 cm pieces
  • 2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2 cm pieces


  1. Put the onion, cabbage and oil into a large saucepan and heat over a medium heat, stirring every so often.
  2. After about 5 to 10 minutes the cabbage and onion should be starting to soften.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the pan and bring to a simmer.
  4. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to prevent it from burning on the bottom. If it starts to look a bit dry don't be afraid to add a bit of water.
  5. Serve in bowls.

Serves 2.
