Just Say No to Eating Animals Monday, Volume 22: Just Bubble, No Squeak a Royal Dish

Many of you know that I live with folks from across the pond, namely my husband and Mum-in-Law.

So in honor of all the upcoming weddings this summer, here’s a dish that’s easy, and more importantly, will leave you no bigger than the Duchess of Cambridge (that seems to be of major importance to many brides-to-be).

Bubble and Squeak is a traditional Monday dish, fancy that, served in the UK.  It was originally left over cabbage and potatoes, or other vegetables, from Sunday Roast (think the American idea of Sunday Dinner) along with a meat, frequently sausages, bangers.  This humble dish, is such a part of the national fabric it actually did appear at the reception after the royal wedding!

Just Bubble, No Squeak

1 large head of Cabbage, approximately 2 lbs.
2 cloves of garlic
1 large onion
1 T. grapeseed oil

Roughly chop cabbage and onion.  Finely chop garlic.

Heat oil in pan until it glistens.  Add the garlic and stir until lightly golden and fragrant, approximately 1 minute.

Add cabbage and onion.  Cook until wilted and tender, approximately 4-5 minutes over medium high heat.
