MMMM! All vegan!
MMM! All vegan!

Recently, I discovered pointed cabbage. In Dutch, we call it: spitskool.

You can click onto this useful link & see how you can use it, pointed cabbage. Pointed, hearted or sweetheart cabbage as it is sometimes known is a type of green cabbage with green leaves and a pointed head. The leaves are more open than those of a green cabbage and they have a softer texture and sweeter taste. When buying pointed cabbage look for crisp, bright looking leaves and avoid any that are wilting, yellowing or have discoloured patches or holes.

Recipe: For 2 persons


1 large white onion, peeled & finely diced
1 fat clove of garlic, peeled & finely diced
2 sweeter apples, peeled, cored & diced into little pieces, about 1cm x 1 cm
450 gr of cleaned pointed cabbage, the nerve cut out & cut into smaller long strips about 0.5 cm thick
EVOO, a fruity one
sea salt
1 tablespoon of mild curry powder, I use Sharwood’s
1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder
2 tablespoons of dark raisins
To Serve: 2 tablespoons of finely cut pecans/ I served this tasty dinner with boiled potatoes & baked Vegan Gluten-free cutlets


1. Take your wok & add some EVOO. Using kitchen paper, smear the oil all over the wok. Heat on a medium heat. When hot, add the diced onion & garlic. Stir fry for about 1 to 2 minutes.

2. Add the ginger & curry powder. Add a bit of EVOO, if necessary. Stir fry for about 2 minutes.
3. Now, add the diced apple & raisins & stir fry for about 2 to 3 minutes. Sometimes, I put the lid on the wok to capture the heat, during a few minutes.
4. Add the shredded cabbage & stir fry for about 2 to 5 minutes until the cabbage has been wilted but still has a crunch. It mustn’t be raw but just right. Finally, when everything is nearly ready, add som sea salt all over the dish. Taste! It has to taste fab! Stir everything round & check the cabbage one last time.
5. Take your plate & serve a good serving on your plate. Sprinkle some of the cut up pecans over the cabbage stir fry & enjoy with some boiled potatoes & a good vegan burger.

  1. It’s really called “spitskool”? That’s hilarious. Looks like fun, though, and your dish would make a great lunch or supper side 🙂

  2. Wow, I have no experience with pointed cabbage, but it looks really cool! I’m loving the flavours in this dish, so appropriate for Fall, and just the perfect balance of sweet and savoury!

  3. Spitzkohl, how wonderful, I looooo♥ve it! Thanks for this wonderful variation, dear Sophie♥! I can’t wait to try it out. Have to work this night first…
    Love Dina

  4. Haven’t heard of spitskool Sophie! That second photo looks like some creepy undersea albino walrus. LOVE the sound of your stir-fry – such a great combination of flavour and texture.

  5. What an interesting looking cabbage, your stir fry looks terrific with all those ingredients I’m sure it was eaten up quickly.
