Cabbage: Salads, Slaws & Stirfries. Oh My!

This recipes is a bit more complicated and calls for some specialty ingredients, but it’s a fun dish if you feel like experimenting!

Cabbage Entrees:

Hungarian Sweet & Sour Stuffed Cabbage

yields 1 large casserole
1 large head cabbage
2 cups seitan, ground
2 cups cooked rice
1 cup cooked quinoa or millet
1 cup texturized vegetable protein
1 clove garlic, diced finely
1 onion, diced finely
1 Tbsp. oil
1 (12 oz.) can tomato paste

Tofu Mixture
1/2 lb. tofu, rinsed & drained
2 tsp. herb seasoning
1/4 Cup. water
4 Tbsp. nutritional yeast
2 Tbsp. tamari or substitute
1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
12 oz. can tomato paste, & water (to thin)
sweetener, to taste
fresh lemon juice, to taste

1. Boil water in a large pot. In the pot, place one head of cabbage (remove core to reduce cooking time).
2. While cabbage is cooking, grind the seitan in a food processor, using the “S” shaped blade. Cook the rice and quinoa (see page 12). Pour boiling water over the T.V.P. and let it absorb the water.
3. Stir-fry garlic and onion in one tablespoon oil.
4. In a large mixing bowl, place grains, seitan, T.V.P, garlic powder, onion powder and one can of tomato paste.
5. In a food processor, blend the tofu mixture ingredients and add to the mixing bowl. Mix well.
6. Carefully remove cabbage leaves and let cool for five minutes. Put 1–2 tablespoons of batter in each and roll up, making sure batter is completely covered with the leaf.
7. Mix tomato paste, sweetener and lemon juice. Cover the bottom of a baking dish with this mixture. Place rolls on top of mixture. Before adding second layer, spread more mixture on top of rolls. End with the tomato paste sauce on top of rolls. (Add a little water while baking, if necessary.) Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350° for one hour.

Cool a little before serving.

Oh, and to add a bit of a snappy flavor to miso soup, cut bok choy or napa cabbage into large squares and steam them into the soup.

With oriental flavor ramen noodles, you can steam bok choy or napa cabbage, reconstitute dried shiitake mushrooms in the water for the noodles. Dump in noodles, cook through, throw in cabbage & seasoning packets. You can use Brussels Sprouts this way also. My son has loved this since he was big enough to eat it.

For sandwiches...
Take your favorite sandwich such as grilled cheese or hot dog... julienne cut cabbage, sprinkle over your open sandwich while browning the outside of grilled sandwich. Roast under broiler for that toasted taste in the cabbage and cheese. It's really good.
