Traditionally, a hash was the perfect way to use up leftovers from a roast dinner. Here, a glorious mix of colourful vegetables with crumbly cheddar cheese makes a complete vegetarian dish. Accompany with a good fruity relish or chutney.
Heat the oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes and fry, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned all over.
Add the cabbage and carrots and stir gently to mix with the potatoes. Continue to fry, stirring occasionally, for about 2 minutes until the vegetables start to soften.
Pour in the water and cover the pan. Allow the vegetables to steam for about 3 minutes. Stir in the scallions and cook, covered, for about 6 minutes longer. Season to taste.
Crumble the cheese over the vegetable hash and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
Tip: Savoy cabbage is easy to recognize because of its wrinkled leaves and loose head. If you can't find it, use another type of cabbage.
Variations: For a non-vegetarian hash, add 175 grams diced, cooked ham with the scallions. Shredded Brussels sprouts make a good tasty alternative to cabbage. For added colour and flavour, replace half the potatoes with squash.
