Get a young and wonderful spring cabbage, slice it very thin, and then put it in a pan and stir-fry it in a tablespoon of oil. As soon as it wilts, cover the pan and let it simmer in its steam. It is ready in a few minutes, season with sea salt, some freshly nutmeg (grated), some fresh black pepper, and drop some butter all over it as you put the steaming dish on the table.
Hmmm....What a taste! Crispy, clean-tasting, and crunchy, enjoy it!
