1 large red onion
1 large Chinese cabbage
1 tbsp olive oil or stir fry oil
pinch salt
pinch black pepper
pinch mixed herbs
1 tsp soy sauce (optional)

Slice the onion and set aside.
Slice the cabbage and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok on medium-high heat till smoking hot.
Add the onion and stir fry until softened.
Add the dry seasonings and stir.
Add the cabbage and toss so that the oil, onion and seasonings are evenly distributed with the cabbage.
Add soy sauce, if desired.
Reduce to a low heat and let simmer for five minutes.
Adjust the seasonings to taste.
Remove from the heat and serve over white rice.

Serves 4

Modify this to chicken chop suey by adding cooked cubed, diced or shredded chicken in before adding the cabbage and allowing it to cook for five minutes.

You can add any type of cooked meat to this dish, so it’s a great way to use up leftovers or to stretch small amounts of meat into a full main dish.

It’s quick, easy and healthy and makes a great midweek meal.
