Nice simple, easy to follow recipe, first time wth caraway seeds and noticed the diff. I would have liked a tad more seasoning, otherwise finished the plate. PC

An old favourite is a variant of this, but uses butter and adds fresh lemon juice when the dish is assembled.

couldn't find caraway seeds in my cupboard, so used a mix of fennel and cumin and topped with a sprinkling of sprouted mung beans for an extra healthy crunch! yum

Delicious! I added some demerara sugar as the onions cooked to add some sweetness. A really fragrant aniseedy flavour from the toasted caraway seeds. A nice way to make cabbage interesting!

Very good and one cabbage makes A LOT for four servings. Six servings is more like it.
