Cut cabbage in half lengthwise and cut out the stem wedge. Cut cabbage leaves into strips 1 cm wide and salt.

Heat butter or oil in a pan. Peel the onion, cut into small cubes and add to the frying pan together with the rosemary and bay leaf.

Wash and chop capsicums into small pieces and add to the pan. Add cabbage and let stew over medium heat for 5 minutes. Season with pepper, sugar and lemon juice and continue cooking for 8 minutes. Remove from heat.

Cut cherry tomatoes in half, add to dish, and season with cayenne pepper or chili to taste.
