My cabbage recipes


Cabbage and Meat Rissoles (Lazy Cabbage Roll Patties)

January 30th, 2016 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

EnjoyYourCooking already has recipe for Lazy Cabbage Rolls casserole, this recipe variation uses almost the same ingredients, but in form of cabbage and meat patties baked under tomato and sour cream sauce.

Again, they are much easier and faster to prepare comparing to traditional cabbage rolls (this is why they are called “lazy”), but taste is very similar.

These patties constitute complete meal, but some vegetables or salads can be served along as a side dish.

Cabbage with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

January 16th, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This dish offers great combination of tastes: cabbage, onions, mushrooms and sour cream braised together and seasoned with fresh dill.

Cabbage braised with mushrooms and sour cream can be served as a side or as no meat course on its own.

Time needed for cooking will vary depending on how soft you like cabbage to be, just check its readiness from time to time.

Cabbage Pancakes

July 4th, 2015 in Main Dishes, No-meat by Julia Volhina

If you have some cabbage sitting in the fridge and you don’t know what to do with it, here is your way out: make cabbage pancakes. They are much like Ukrainian “deruny” but made from cabbage and onions.

My better half is not a big fan of cabbage in general, but he loves these and always asks for seconds.

Cabbage pancakes work great for breakfast or lunch as a dish on its own. But they are not sweet, so I suppose can be served as a side dish as well.

Listed amount of ingredients will produce about 15 pancakes.

Cabbage Baked with Eggs

December 20th, 2014 in Eggs, Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I don’t know how to call this dish: it is not a cake or pie, but it certainly looks like one; it doesn’t seem to be a casserole, but you can bake it in a casserole pan, it does look similar to quiche, but is not exactly a quiche.

I guess at very least it is an omelette, omelette with cabbage. Yes, I know, an unusual combination, but still pretty tasty.

Cabbage omelette doesn’t require a lot of time to prepare, can be served for breakfast or lunch as a dish on it’s own, but it also can be paired with meats as a side dish.

Brussel Sprouts with Mushrooms and Onions

February 2nd, 2013 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

Brussels sprouts cooked in mushroom and onion sauce can be served as a dish on its own, or as a side dish for a meat main course.

You can use fresh or frozen brussels sprouts for this recipe, frozen ones don’t require thawing, but may need a bit less time for cooking.

Vary amount of water (or broth) and flour while cooking to reach desired thickness of the sauce (more flour and less water will make it for thicker sauce).

Brussels Sprouts in Tomato and Soy Sauce

December 1st, 2012 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

I got probably my last catch of brussels sprouts for this year and had to throw away some of it, that is why I only had three quarter of a pound left. If you manage to get whole pound, just increase ingredients proportionally.

In this recipe tomato can be replaced with tomato paste with water, but I like fresh tomatoes more than canned substitutes.

A note: recipe doesn’t call for salt for a reason: the soy sauce is salty enough.

Cabbage Braised with Bratwurst

June 2nd, 2012 in Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

I had some bratwurst left from last cookout and instead of sticking it to the freezer, I decided to cook this bachelor food: braised cabbage with brats and tomato paste.

There is not much hassle with meat, cabbage is hard to mess up, just fry all ingredients together and salt to taste.

You can replace brats with any kind of sausage to your taste, even sliced bologna will work.

Diluted tomato paste can be replaced with fresh tomatoes, peeled and pureed, but that is an exercise for an experienced bachelor…
