    littleturtle's Note:

    pronounced gaw-WUMP-kee, literally meaning 'little pigeons'. Probably the best known Polish food. The ground meat & rice type in tomato sauce are the most common, but the seasonings and stuffings vary from region to region and there are many other varieties, including vegetarian versions like the one listed here.

      I was extremely apprehensive about making this dish, but it proved to be easier than I thought and was very tasty. I wasn’t sure what was meant in Step 1 by “slice through the base of the stem, so I just cored the head. Then, I used kitchen shears to snip away any remaining tough parts at the stem before filling the leaves. Step #2: Little turtle was right, I had to immerse the head into the boiling water several times so that, each time the outer leaves were done to just the right tenderness. I made the rice filling the night before and refrigerated it and I think that improved it – allowing the spices to blend better. Everyone enjoyed this dish, even the meat eaters among us.

      Worcestershire sauce is NOT vegetarian as it contains Anchovies.
