Stuvet Hvidkål

Stuvet Hvidkål

As a child we occasionally had Stuvet Hvidkål with Frikadeller and my Mom makes the best stewed cabbage in the world, of course 😘 I have not served this dish myself very often because my son and husband was not terribley thrilled with the idea of stewed cabbage. However, I just had such a craving for it the other day and my husband actually liked it, even told me three times that it was really delicious. So either he was starving to death or it was super delicious. I think super delicious!

Stuvet Hvidkål (4-6 servings)

Ingredients:

1 small white cabbage head

2 1/2 dl reserved water from cabbage

4 tablespoon salted butter

4 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Milk, to desired consistency

Fresh ground Nutmeg, to taste

Salt, to taste

Pepper, to taste

Directions:

Discard outer cabbage leaves. Divide cabbage head into four quarters, cut out core and chop cabbage into bite-size pieces. Boil cabbage in lightly salted water for 10 minutes. Reserve 2 1/2 cups of cabbage water, drain cabbage.

Melt butter over medium heat, add flour and whisk for 1-2 minutes until roux takes on a light golden color. Slowly add milk in small increments whisking constantly until you have a thick roux, then add cabbage water in small increments continuing to whisk until desired consistency. (If Bechamel sauce is still too thick at this point you can add a little more milk). Season to taste with fresh ground nutmeg, salt and pepper. Add cabbage to sauce and simmer covered for 5-10 minutes. Serve hot with some wonderful Frikadeller. Enjoy and Velbekomme.
