Stuffed Cabbage With Sauerkraut Beans Greens

STUFFED CABBAGE WITH SAUERKRAUT BEANS GREENS

A simple dish using few ingredients that tastes like it took hours to cook. Eat plain or serve with a salad or fresh cooked carrots! Applesauce also works! These frozen turnip greens were good – saves a lot of prep time too! Sauerkraut doesn’t always have to be eaten raw as you will taste!

Also stuff cooked cabbage leaves, top with sauce and bake till tender and bubbly! Today we’re making stuffed cabbage.

Made 8 cups main dish beans & greens or 12 or more stuffed cabbage

RED CABBAGE AND GREEN BEAN SAUTE

Salt, pepper and garlic, that’s all the seasoning we use to highlight the subtle flavors of the veggies without a lot of other flavors to distract from the main event! Serve alone or with rice. I like it both ways, depending on how busy I am and how much weight I have yet to lose!

Tired of the same old mashed yams? Or the cubed and roasted style? Me too. Steve doesn’t like the texture. So what do I do with yams on sale? Try something new. Yam steaks!

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

BAKED VEG CHEESE AND VEAL CANNELLONI

We use the other white plant meat for this fine American-Italian casserole. Veg veal! I think I’ve had veal once or twice aside from a luncheon sandwich meat called veal loaf back in the long ago days. I recall it not having much flavor – not the loaf that tasted more like bologna, but the fresh pounded cutlets. 

Mild in flavor, soft when ground, which is what we did here. We, meaning me. I figured I must have had some divine or other intervention help on this one, since I nailed it first time. On my birthday too! Had no idea I’d be cooking today. Must be that Alpha Lipoid Acid I’m taking that fixes fatigue. It works.

What a treat. OMGod does this have meat in it? And the sauce!! All so rich, all so wonderful!

Makes 14 stuffed cannelloni
