Healthy Stir-fried Cabbage With Prawns Recipe

Stir-fried Cabbage With Prawns
Sharing is caring!

With the Circuit Breaker period now in place, you could have minimised your trips to the supermarket or wet market.

The next time you head there, you might want to grab a round cabbage. It lasts longer in the fridge compared to green leafy vegetables and tastes just as great.

Cabbage on its own is sweet and all you need to do is to throw in some prawns to give this dish an edge.

I normally cook this with dried prawns as it pairs well with cabbage and adds flavour to the stock.

However, for an even healthier version, you can cook this easily with fresh prawns. With this version, your child can help with de-shelling the prawns.

The older kids would also enjoy dicing up the round cabbage.

Have fun together with this simple to cook dish!
