We continue the stories of autumn flavors with a new star: The cabbage.

A versatile ingredient that can be cooked in many different ways: pickled, sauteed, steamed, fermented or eaten raw.

One of the most extraordinary recipes we tasted some years ago in Eastern Europe is the sauteed cabbage and bacon recipe. And we could not forget it.

After some years of trials and culinary research we discovered it, and of course we are sharing it with you. Maybe you also discovered different variations of this recipe in the Central and Western Europe famous Christmas Markets or during the cold season.

The warmth and flavor of this dish is amazing especially during autumn and winter. And on top of it, for the fans of keto cuisine, this is also a keto recipe, easy to cook and based on sustainable seasonal veggies.
