  • Healthy Fat
    • 2 tbsp butter
  • Herbs, spices, Extras
    • ¼ tsp salt
      ¼ tsp pepper

Ingredients are based off the Sleekgeek Food List, combined together using the Sleekgeek Healthy Meal Template, and portioned out with the Sleekgeek Portion Control Guide.


  • First off, dice the bacon. You can buy a pack of diced bacon, or if you have rashers, use a knife (or kitchen scissors) to roughly chop the bacon into bite sized pieces.
  • Next, grate all the veggies – start with peeling the potato, then grate using a regular grater (as pictured). Do the same with the carrot (peel, then grate). And lastly, the cabbage can either be grated or you can chop it using a knife if you find that easier.
  • Place a frying pan over medium heat, add ¼ cup water and the diced bacon. Keep stirring for about 3-5 minutes until the water has evaporated and the bacon has browned and cooked. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside in a bowl.
  • Place the pan back onto the stove over medium heat and add the butter. Allow the butter to melt.
  • Add the grated potato and stir gently (so as to not mash it completely). If you find the potato sticks to the pan, add 1-2 tbsp of water and mix. Cover the pan with the lid to allow the potato to soften for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and add the grated cabbage and carrot to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and give it all a good mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Toss the cooked bacon back into the pan, stir it in gently, and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and serve as is, or with a few cherry tomatoes and a squeeze of lemon.
