West Country Spring Greens and Cabbage are in Season

April sees the arrival of the peak period for the first cabbages of the year, spring greens. Rich in beta carotene and vitamin C, these leafy green vegetables are a delicious way to top up your immune system, and keep your eyes and skin healthy.

F. Milford and Sons source our spring greens and cabbage from Stone, a vegetable supplier in the West Country.

There are lots of great ways that you can enjoy spring greens and cabbage; from stir-fry’s to soups and stews, or you could just have them as a side dish with one of your favourite meals. Here is a very simple recipe which you can use for your spring greens:

Spring Cabbage with Mustard Seeds:

Ingredients:

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp mustard seed

1 small onion, finely sliced,

1 garlic clove, crushed

1 tbsp grated ginger

500g spring cabbage, shredded

Method:

  • Start by heating the oil in a frying pan, then cook the mustard seeds until they are starting to pop. Then add the onion, garlic and ginger and fry until golden. Next, put in the cabbage and stir, ensuring that it is fully coated in the spices. Cook for 5 mins until tender, then season and serve immediately.

 

The best time to buy spring greens and cabbage is from April – June, as this is when they are at their best. To put in an order, or speak to us about any of the other West Country vegetables that we supply, then contact us today on 01392 274 035, or email steve@fmilfords.co.uk.
