Bubble & Squeak

A traditional English dish made with the leftovers of a big roast dinner, the base being primarily potatoes and cabbage. It is so yummy that it is actually worth starting from scratch, leftovers or no leftovers. Cabbage is an excellent source of Vitamin C. It also contains significant amounts of glutamine, an amino acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties, so great for those hang over days.
