I used soured cream (didn't have double cream in the fridge) and it was phenomenal :)
I tried it before adding the cream and the taste was superb.
Great combination of veggies, work well together!

Excellent, really tasty and fresh. Adults and kids ate it all. I used creme fraiche as I didn't have cream - lightened it up and was lovely.

Didn't really like cabbage and wanted to find a recipe to change my mind and it certainly did. Really easy will be making again.

A neat twist on traditional veggies. Quick, easy and looks good too. Good even totally plain without the cream or seasonings. Even my kids like it!
