  • 200g Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince
  • Veg oil
  • 1 bunch spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 white onion, finely sliced
  • 1 red or green pepper, finely sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 red chilli, finely sliced
  • 2 tsp five spice
  • 1 hispi or sweetheart cabbage, cut into 4 wedges


  1. Place oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Flake the Meatless Farm Plant-Based Mince into the pan, cook for around 10 mins, gently breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go. Add a drizzle more oil if needed. Keep cooking until you have a pan of crispy mince. Then remove mince from the pan and set aside.
  2. In a very hot pan, drizzle in some oil then stir fry the onion, spring onion, chili and peppers for a minute or two
  3. Add the crispy mince, garlic, salt and pepper and five spice.
  4. Mix well and cook for 1 min. This is your salt and pepper mince mix. Keep it to one side until needed.
  5. Quarter the hispi cabbage and pan fry with a little oil over a medium heat until nicely coloured all over. Season with salt and pepper then and roast in the oven on a baking tray with a big nob of butter for around 10-15 mins at 180C.
  6. Now you’re ready to serve… Re-heat the salt and pepper mince and then tip over the cabbage. Add more chopped chilli or coriander for a little more festive jazz.
