Grate potatoes, small inner leaves of cabbage, and one of the onions. Mix together. Add rice, dill, and black pepper. Beat egg whites until frothy and add to potato mixture.
Set aside two or three of the largest leaves. Fill each remaining cabbage leaf with approximately 2 Tbsp of the potato mixture. Fold up bottom of leaf, then fold in the sides, and roll up. Secure with toothpick if necessary.
Slice the reserved leaves and line the bottom of crock pot with them. Slice second onion and layer on top of cabbage. Add tomatoes, apple, and ginger. Place rolled stuffed cabbages into pot. Cook at low heat for 4 to 5 hours.
TANGY RED BULGAR
1 tblsp olive or vegetable oil
1 cup chopped red or green bell pepper, or combination
1 cup chopped zucchini or yellow squash, or both
2 1/4 cup Bloody Mary mix or vegetable juice
1 cup bulgur wheat
1 tblsp lemon juice
1 tsp dired basil, crushed, or 1 tablespoon fresh, minced
1/3 cup chopped green onions
Heat oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Cook pepper(s) and squash(es) until tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in Bloody Mary mix or vegetable juice, bulgur, lemon juice, and basil. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 5 to 8 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Garnish with green onions. May be served warm or as a salad at room temperature.
In a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole dish, combine oil, red pepper and zucchini. Cover with lid; microwave on high 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp, stirring twice during cooking. Add vegetable juice, bulgur, lemon juice, and basil. Cover and microwave 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring twice during cooking. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes. Garnish with green onions.
I have made this in a crockpot, tossing all the ingredients except the basil and green onions in and cooking on low for 8 hours, adding the basil after 7.5 hours, and garnishing with green onions just before serving. The resulting dish is indistinguishable from one made using the stove top method. I refuse to try the microwave method. I generally use only two cups of Bloody Mary mix since the brand I buy
comes in quart bottles.
