“I once had a friend in town whose husband is from Tanzania. This is one of the sides that was served with some coconut fish one evening I was over for dinner. Poor little me had only had boiled cabbage growing up. I couldn't get enough of this! Now that I am more knowledgeable, I know this is just a variation on braising cabbage. Bakari told me it is very important to slice the cabbage thin. I can't remember if his had garlic in it but I usually add it.”
