1; If you want to avoid the smell of cooking cabbage in the house, bake a thick slice of bread in the oven till crisp, then float one of these giant croutons on top of the water whenever you boil cabbage
2; If the cabbage leaves are large with thick stems, cut these out before cooking so you can roll them up more easily when stuffed.
Served with a green salad, this mix of protein, carbohydrate and three vegetables is a perfect balance. Finish the meal with a peach, a handful of grapes and two plums and you’ve had your five a day.
