  • “Unbelievably good!A friend brought me a home-grown Savoy that was almost too pretty to cook, but I’m glad I did, using this recipe.I read the other reviews and took the advice about adding a bit of onion and crushed red pepper, and also dashed a bit of sesame oil with the olive oil for sauteeing.I ate the WHOLE skillet in one day, but it’s so healthy and low-calorie that who cares?Thanks Bergy!”

  • “Fantastic! I added crushed red pepper and some chopped sweet onion. It smelled so good and I was so hungry I forgot lime juice. I’ll try it next time. A easy, healthy and inexpensive dish that’s full of flavor. Love it!”

  • “This was a great last-minute addition to Pad Thai. It has an unexpected kick to it that you don’t notice at first bite. I did end up adding some red pepper flakes to mine. I think the leftovers would make good eggroll filling. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Amazing!I bought some Savoy Cabbage, not knowing what I was going to do with it.
    Bergy, this recipe is a keeper.The cabbage was crisp tender and mild in flavor.The olive oil ,garlic and ginger was the perfect dressing combination.I did see that others added red pepper flakes and sesame oill, but I made this as directed and I was definately not disappointed in the finished dish.Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.”
