What a great vegetable dish, you can make it as hot as you want or as mild - I like it hot so I used 2 jalapenos, i habanero and 2 tsp of Peri-peri powder. I wondered about the cabbage but followed the recipe and it really added so much to the total flavor. This is a meal in itself but I had left over pork with it. Thanks for sharing this recipe Sharon 123
