    Savoy cabbage bake with Taleggio, thyme & hazelnut crumbs

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 45 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hours


    60g unsalted butter
    2 onions, thinly sliced
    1 savoy cabbage, sliced
    100g day-old sourdough, rye or ciabatta bread
    50g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
    2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
    100g taleggio cheese, chopped
    150ml double cream
    100ml strong vegetable stock (made with a stock cube, using ½ the amount of water suggested), warmed


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Melt 20g butter in a pan and fry the onion over a medium heat, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes, until soft and beginning to brown. Meanwhile, blanch the cabbage in a pan of boiling salted water for 4 minutes. Drain thoroughly, pat dry with kitchen paper, then spread out with the onion in a medium gratin dish.

    2 For the topping, melt the remaining 40g butter. Whizz the bread in a small food processor to coarse crumbs. Combine with the chopped nuts, melted butter and thyme. Season and stir in the taleggio. Add the cream to the warm stock; season and pour over the cabbage, then scatter with the nutty crumbs. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and bubbling.
