Red cabbage and peas

I don’t like to waste food. I had used half a red cabbage a few days ago to make avocado slaw, and the other half was waiting reproachfully in the fridge. So today. when I needed a vegetable side dish for my creamy chicken, bacon and leek pie out came the red cabbage! Necessity is the mother of invention, after all!
