I ignored the first mention of cabbage, left out the pine nuts (because I didn't have any) and added half a red onion. It was very tasty, but a little salty. I'll add less soy sauce next time.

I made this last night and added some shallots & red chilli. I presumed that the recipe meant the cook ginger and garlic at the beginning if stage 1. I added some noodles at the end and it made a very tasty supper.

Not bad, but I think the cabbage should be added for just a minute or so at the end as it tends to wilt quickly otherwise.

Confusing recipe, hence 1 star

I assume that the cabbage should not in fact be added at step 1?
