TRIWIS - CABBAGE SPROUTS

This morning I picked some triwis or criwis (cabbage sprouts) from my garden.
This is not Brussel sprouts, just ordinary cabbage head variety.
 
 

Maybe you will throw away your cabbage plants after harvesting the heads.
Actually, it will be a good compost.

But I never do that.
I will let the plants still on my garden.
The plants will bring out the sprouts from the leaves axil.
I find additional greens from my garden. 
Prolong the productive season... and get more.

 

The sprouts have sweet taste and crispy texture.
Here, especially in Java, we can find triwis sold in traditional markets.

 

There are so many traditional dishes that made from this sprouts.
I will show you my own recipes from this greens forward. 
Have a nice weekend.

  1. I did use them years ago but haven't grown cabbage much lately. I may grow cabbage next fall, It gets too hot here in the summer with all the bugs.

  2. Apparently you can cut a cross in the top of the stem and that encourages sprouting too
