Today I wanted to share one of my favorite recipes! My sweet friend Cami taught me to make it. Cami is from Romania and she says that it is a very common dish there. It's has a very savory flavor and is great alone or as a side dish. Let's get started!
You will need a head of cabbage, an onion, 4-5 slices of turkey bacon (or sausage, or whatever you like), salt, olive oil, dill, and sour cream (optional).
Have your helper peel your onion, and then you dice it up and saute it in a little olive oil and a couple of tablespoons of water.
While the onions are getting started cut up the turkey bacon into small pieces.
Now throw those in.
Now chop the cabbage up into 1-2" pieces.
Throw it all in.
I add in a teaspoon of salt (I really like salt) maybe you should start with half that and then see what you think. Then I sprinkle the top with the dill seasoning. My friend Cami also adds a seasoning called summer savory. I haven't been able to find this in America. Her mom brings it to her from back home. If you can get your hands on some, add that too! It's awesome!
Stir all of that in and wait...
...or knit, whatever.... I usually cook it until the white pieces of cabbage look kind of clear and the green pieces are bright green.
Taste it. I like mine lightly cooked, Cami usually cooks hers down more to where it has a caramel brown tint to it. It's really good either way.
Then put it on a plate and add a dab of sour cream. (Doesn't sour cream sound weird? I remember thinking that too! But try it! It's amazing!) Now eat and knit. :)
