Braised cabbage with chorizo & creamy mashed potatoes
Prep 20 mins | Cook 35 mins | Serves 4-6 as side dishes
2 tbs olive oil
2 chorizo sausages, chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1⁄2 medium (about 750g) Savoy cabbage, trimmed and shredded
1⁄2 cup dry white wine
1⁄2 cup chicken stock
5 thyme sprigs
Creamy mashed potatoes
900g Sebago potatoes, peeled and chopped
1⁄2 cup light cream
Step 1 Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add chorizo and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cabbage and cook, stirring often, until cabbage wilts. Add wine and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in stock and thyme, cover and simmer for 15 minutes until cabbage is tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 2 Meanwhile, to make mash, cook potatoes in a saucepan of salted boiling water for 12 minutes until tender. Drain and return potatoes to pan. Mash over heat for 1 minute for potatoes to thoroughly dry. Remove from heat and add butter. Mash until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, beat in cream (if necessary add extra cream or milk to desired consistency). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with cabbage.
