Recipe: Red Cabbage with Pear and Feta

I am not a great cabbage fan, but I quite started to like red cabbage. It is something we ate several times last winter and I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to prepare it before the cold days are totally over. The original recipe comes from 24 Kitchen.

Red Cabbage with Pear and Feta: (serves 4)
- 1 red cabbage
- 800 gr potatoes
- fresh chives
- 100 gr cream cheese
- 1 pear
- 125 gr feta
- some butter
- 100 ml water
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 25 gr sugar
- 1 bay leaf
- 1 tsp cornstarch

Start with the red cabbage. Cut the red cabbage in 4 pieces. Remove the core, and slice it up. Melt some butter in a pan and bake the red cabbage for about 2 minutes. Add water, cinnamon stick, bay leaf and sugar. Bring to a boil, cover and let it simmer on low heat for about 25 minutes.

Boil some water. Peel and cut the potatoes evenly. Cook them in about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and let them steam them dry in the pan for a bit. Chop the chives and stir cream cheese and chives through the potatoes. Add some salt and pepper to taste.

Remove the cinnamon stick and bay leaf from the pan. Peel and cut the pear. Stir the cornstarch and some water in a small bowl and add it to the red cabbage together with the pear. Stir it through and let it warm for a bit.
Serve everything with the feta on top.
