Margarita's International Recipes

A Botswanan Menu



This simple dish can be served as an accompaniment for cornmeal and/or seswaa. It was OK, but it lacked "oomph". It probably could do with some more spicing, though I'm not sure from what. The original recipe does ask to "add herbs" but it doesn't specify what those herbs might be or in what quantity so, of necessity, I skipped them.




Heat the oil and fry the tomato and onions for 5 minutes. Add the oregano and ginger and mix well. Add the cabbage, mix, and cook partially covered on low heat until the vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally. The final product should be soft but not brown.

Adapted from a recipe I found online, printed, and then lost the url.
