Crispy Bacon Cabbage

Crispy Bacon Cabbage
Do you have trouble getting the family members to eat their vegetables?
I find adding a little bacon adds a lot of flavour without breaking the calorie bank. 
Cabbage is a great fibre booster and adds cozy comfort during the cooler weather.
1/2 head of cabbage, sliced thinly
4-6 slices of smoked bacon, diced
3 cloves garlic, smashed
2 tbsp EVOO
1tbsp chili flakes (opt)
salt & pepper to taste
Fill a large stock pot 3/4 full of water. Drop in cabbage and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a medium high. Cook for 10 min pushing cabbage down into water so it is completely immersed.
Drain cabbage into a colander. 
Place the pot back onto medium heated burner add bacon and oil. 
Cook until crispy and golden brown.  Add garlic and chili flakes.  Saute until lightly golden.
Tip cabbage into pot, season to taste and continue cooking for 10-15min. more continuously tossing so cabbage evenly cooks and does not stick to pot.
Enjoy with love.
