At least, that's what I'm hearing from you. You want new and interesting things to with cabbage.
And, specifically, no more recipes for Asian-style slaw!
If, like me, you grew up on stewed red cabbage, you, too, may immediately think, "Eeew ... cabbage!" But never fear: as with pork chops, once you figure out there are alternatives to the way it was prepared in the 1970s, you'll become a fan.
Note: some of these recipes aren't chilly and summery, but they definitely are seasonal, given the cabbagey emphasis.
And I couldn't entirely ignore slaw, as it is one of the finest vehicles for raw cabbage, but I promise this one isn't Asian.
As always, if you need help with a veggie you've received in your CSA share, leave a comment below or send me an email before this coming Friday.
Recipes suggestions are posted on Mondays.
On to the cabbage recipes...
- Cabbage, ham and mushroom galette: the horseradish cream really puts this simple recipe over the delicious top. Savoy cabbage is a good choice in this recipe.
- Nouveau colcannon: While the recipe calls for baby spinach, substitute a more delicate variety of cabbage (napa, for instance, rather than thicker, sturdier green cabbage) for a more authentic colcannon.
- Ribollita: A slow-cooked Tuscan cabbage and bean soup, from Ina Garten via the Food Network.
- Pizzoccheri: Here are two different takes on using these Northern Italian buckwheat noodles -- I can't decide which to make first!
- Sweet and spicy slaw: Slaw with a little kick -- yum!
