Spanish Cabbage, Bacon and Peppers

Serves 2-3

I was given the basics of this dish from our lovely neighbour, Vee, who, inspired by her husband`s years working in Spain, specialises in Spanish cooking. It`s quick, nutritious, filling enough to be a light lunch or supper and great as a side dish or cold salad. If you`re cooking for vegetarians, just leave out the bacon. You`ll still get a fabulous flavour. If you`re using bacon don`t add salt when cooking the cabbage.

- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 110g/4oz chopped lean back bacon (3 or 4 rashers)
- 2 long red peppers, finely sliced, seeds removed - they`re sweeter and thinner skinned than the round variety
- 1 small or half a large white cabbage, finely shredded
- 2 teaspoons wholegrain mustard
- 2 tablespoons water
- freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the bacon bits and fry until just crisp. Add the peppers, cook over gentle heat until just soft. Meanwhile, simmer the cabbage in water until just crisp – about 4 minutes. Drain, add to the peppers with the water, cover and cook for another 4 minutes. Stir in the mustard and serve in a warm bowl.
