  5. For the cabbage, place the cabbage into a bowl and cover with cold salted water for half an hour.

  6. Drain off all but a few tablespoons of the cabbage soaking water and transfer the cabbage to a pan over a medium heat. Cover with a lid and steam the cabbage until tender.

  7. Drain the cabbage, then return to the pan. Add the peanut butter and stir into the cabbage.

  8. To serve, place the cabbage and the goat stew into separate serving bowls. Serve with millet - roll the millet into a ball in your hand and dip into the goat stew.
