Well I have hit the 1000 views mark, so big thanks to all who have visited my page. I really hope you have enjoyed reading and maybe even been inspired by my dishes. I haven’t posted for around a week now as I have been very busy at work. I have been cooking of course, so here’s a little catch up…..
Cucina Bianca is a way of cooking in Italy using very basic, white ingredients. Although this sounds boring, I combined cabbage, potatoes and a smoky cheese and the finished product was amazing. I began by putting some chopped Savoy cabbage leaves into boiling water to boil away for around 10 minutes, then I turned my attention to the humble potatoes. I peeled, chopped thinly then blanched the potatoes for a few minutes.
Once your vegetables are ready, grease a baking dish with plenty of butter. Lay down a layer of potatoes, covering with a couple of knobs of butter. Cover with a layer of Savoy cabbage and top with thinly cut strips of cheese (I used a smoky cheddar). Repeat the layers until you have used all ingredients. Finish with a layer of cheese and into the oven for 25 mins.
Simple is not the word and this dish is so hearty, healthy and can be notched up on a budget, it’s just fantastic!
