Green garlic was in our family box today! Sage Mountain Farms green garlic is the best there is, I wish we could smell it through this picture!

Instead of using green onions, I had kurrat, (also called egyptian leeks) from our last box. They’re tastier and rare to find.

~ Red Cabbage

~ Kurrat or green onions

~ 1/3 cup Red Pepper Flakes

~ 1/4 cup Green Garlic

~ 1/4 cup fish sauce

~ 1/3 cup salt

~ 1/4 coconut palm sugar

Make a brine in a large pot, combine the salt and the sugar with 2 quarts of water, heat until the salt dissolves, and the water is warm, but not hot!

Pour the brine over chopped cabbage and kurrat and leave for 30 minutes.

Make a paste by mixing, garlic, red pepper flakes, and fish sauce in a food processor.

Drain the cabbage, and put it in a bowl, sprinkle a little more salt. Mix in the delicious, spicy paste!
