Peas, lentils, cabbages, porridges. If you want to cook cabbage with oil for a prince or a noble lord, slice the cabbage into little pieces, if it's too salty, boil it in clean water, taste it, then decide if you want to pass through a strainer some cabbage water onto it or not. Heat some oil, then pour some flour onto it, put this on the cabbage. Fry the cabbage, then serve it. You can put roast fish to it or scrambled eggs with tree oil.
