2 cups cabbage, shredded
2 garlic cloves, grated
2 tbsp unsalted butter

Drain the soaked samp then transfer in to a small saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Turn heat to medium and simmer for until soft.

Samp soup
In medium saucepan, saute your onions in butter until soft then add the thyme and fry for another minute. Add carrots, garlic, ginger and cumin and saute for about 2 minutes allowing the flavours to build. Now add the cabbage, followed by the samp and cook for a minute before covering with vegetable stock. Season to taste and let cook on low heat until all the flavours are pronounced. This should take about 10-15 min. Serve hot with some bread.
