With the rest of the red cabbage, I tried this recipe in Roca's other book, "Roca no Bento".
The recipe says it serves 2, we don't usually eat that much pickles in one sitting, so it seemed a like a lot to me.
Red Vegetable Pickles from "Roca no Bento" serves 2
160 grams red cabbage
1 bay leaf
1.5 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
Rinse and cut the red cabbage into small pieces
Add the cabbage to a resealable bag, add the seasonings.
Remove as much air as possible and let sit for at least an hour.
NOTES: this was so easy to put together and it tastes like the Japanese cole slaw that I've made before.
We had a little of it the other morning, nice and crunchy! Satoshi said he liked it because it reminded him of sauerkraut.
The sausage we had tasted like portuguese sausage too, whoo!
I transferred the pickles from the resealable bag to a jar. The notes of the recipe also say you can use regular cabbage for this too.
I'll definitely make this one again.
It's Friday here, I hope you all have a nice Easter and a nice weekend!
