Red Cabbage and Cheddar cheese pie

Red cabbage goes surprisingly well in pies. This slightly sweet, slightly peppery and creamy pie is a nice and quick way to make treat. This recipe uses a pre-made puff pastry, so you don't even need to struggle with having to make a pie dough yourself - and let's be honest, when it comes to pie dough, it's alright to take the easy solution now and then.


A serving of red cabbage pie, topped with cheddar cheese


  • Half of a medium red cabbage

  • 1 layer puff pastry 

  • Evo oil, salt and pepper

  • 1 Garlic clove

  • Cheddar cheese, already cut

How to make it

  1. Cut the red cabbage into thin slices. Pre-heat the oven to 200 C.

  2. Place a frying pan on medium heat, add oil, garlic, pepper and cabbage. Stew it in the pan until it's softened, but still has a light crunch. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Place the ready-made puff pastry in an oiled ovenproof pie form. Add the cheddar cheese into the frying pan, and mix well.

  4. With a fork, make some holes in the puff pastry. Pour the mixture on it, and spread it evenly with a spoon. 

  5. Bake in the pre-heated oven at 200 C for about 20 min. Serve warm.
