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!
