Winter Greens with Ginger & Orange

Spice things up a bit with this recipe – the ginger works so well with all the other Christmas flavours, and it’s a welcome change to some of the more traditional recipes.

Ingredients (serves 4-6)

  • 750g winter greens, cabbage or brussels sprouts, shredded
  • 1 medium white onion, finely sliced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
  • Piece of root ginger, approx 4-5cm, peeled and cut into small matchstick slices
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt


  1. On a medium heat, warm a generous splash of olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan/wok.
  2. Add the onions and lightly sautee for 5 mins until the onions turn translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and fry for another minute or two
  4. Turn the heat up a little, and add the ginger and sprouts. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add a splash of water (only a tablespoon or two) to the pan and let it evaporate (this’ll cook the sprouts through a bit better with the steam).
  6. Remove from the heat, season well with sea salt, and stir in the orange zest.
