What Started it all:
Peanuts, Cabbage, onions, frying pan

A bold and unexpected twist on traditional Italian cuisine, where the humble peanuts meet the crunch of cabbage and the sweetness of caramelized onions.


  • 1 large head of cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional, for some heat)


  1. Heat up the pan! In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Caramelize those onions! Add the sliced onions to the pan and cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they're dark golden brown and caramelized.
  3. Add the crunch! Add the peanuts to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly, until they're lightly toasted.
  4. Bring on the cabbage! Add the sliced cabbage to the pan, stirring to combine with the onions and peanuts. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until the cabbage is slightly wilted.
  5. Season with flair! Add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using) to taste.
  6. Serve with attitude! Serve hot, garnished with additional peanuts and a sprinkle of parsley, if desired.
