Ingredients

1 medium-sized Savoy cabbage

4 fl oz olive oil

1 large onion

2 canned tomatoes

200g (7oz) arborio/risotto rice

5 tbsps grated parmesan cheese

salt to taste

Method

THIS is a really delicious dish, but quite filling. Ideal with chops or as a vegetarian dish. Serves 4.

Shred the cabbage finely, peel and chop the onion and chop the tomatoes.

Fry together in the olive oil in a large saucepan for a few minutes, stirring constantly.

Add a little boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring, until the cabbage is nearly cooked. When the cabbage is soft, add boiling water to cover it, stir in the rice and cook slowly over low heat for about 15 minutes, adding more boiling water as necessary as the rice absorbs it, and stirring from time to time.

Add salt to taste and simmer until the rice is soft. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in the parmesan cheese.

Serve at once.
