ingredients

  • 225g green cabbage, finely shredded
  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 500g onions, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 sprigs of rosemary
  • 900g Maris Piper potatoes, thinly sliced
  • Steamed green beans, to serve

method

  1. Preheat your oven to 190°C/170°C Fan/Gas 5. Blanch the shredded cabbage in a pan of boiling water for 3-4 minutes. Drain well and set aside.
  2. Spray a pan with low calorie cooking spray, add the onions, a little salt and one sprig of rosemary. Cover and cook gently over a low heat for 20 minutes, stirring often. Discard the rosemary and set aside.
  3. Spray the potato slices all over with low calorie cooking spray and season. Arrange half the potatoes in the bottom of an ovenproof frying pan, overlapping, in a circle. Add a layer of cabbage, a layer of onions and finally another layer of potatoes. Place the pan on the hob over a medium heat for 5 minutes to colour the bottom, then transfer to the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked.
  4. Remove from the oven and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Place a plate on top of the frying pan and turn out the onion cake. Remove the leaves from the remaining sprig of rosemary and chop. Garnish with the chopped rosemary and serve with steamed green beans.
