Meet fried cabbage with Svanuri salt and hazelnuts in browned butter prepared by Anastasia Lundqvist, the owner of the culinary shop Popkultur in Sweden, that produces and sells Georgian spices abroad.

"My winter warming favorite is fried cabbage with svanuri salt, browned butter and hazelnuts. White cabbage is a common veggie all over the world and its tangy taste turns sweet and nutty when fried or roasted. Besides it is healthy and affordable, it makes a perfect marriage with svanuri salt.
We need:

800 g cabbage
3 tbp vegetable oil
100 g butter
150 g hazelnuts
1 tsp svanuri salt
1 tsp shopped parsley or dill

Svanuri salt

Slice cabbage finely. Fry the cabbage in oil and svanuri salt on high heat for 3-5 minutes then turn on medium-to low heat and fry for 20-30 minutes until the cabbage is cooked through. It can still be a bit al dente, but sweet in taste.

Brown the butter. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium-low heat and continue to cook until butter turns golden brown, Skim foam from top, and remove from heat. Pour into a bowl to stop the cooking, leaving any sediment behind; set aside.

Roast hazelnuts on a dry skillet at medium temperature until they send out this delicious scent of roasted hazelnuts. Let them cool and chop them up roughly.

Assemble the plate by putting cabbage, pour over a tbsp of browned butter and chopped hazelnuts. Garnish with parsley or dill", says author of the recipe.
