A Jewish recipe, originally from "Foods From Eastern Europe Add Variety to Purim Menus" which I have adapted from one I found on www.jewish.com. Posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour.
- 1 (3 lb) savoy cabbage, cored, outer leaves removed, shredded (about 8 cups)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil (probably more than this if you don't use a non-stick pan)
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 yellow onions (American) or 1 brown onion, chopped (Australian)
- 6 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 leeks, thoroughly washed, outer leaves removed, chopped
- fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 (12 ounce) package egg noodles
- 1 tablespoon poppy seed
- Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan; add the sugar and heat gently until the sugar browns.
- Add the onions, garlic and leeks; cook until they start to wilt.
- Stir in the cabbage; sauté, stirring frequently, until the cabbage has softened, about 20 minutes.
- Season to taste with pepper, and transfer the cabbage mixture and pan juices to a large bowl and keep warm.
- Cook the noodles according to the packet instructions, then drain. (Alternatively, using pre-cooked vacuum-packed noodles works well, and saves time).
- Quickly toss the noodles with the cabbage mixture and the poppy seeds.
- Serve immediately.
- Notes: Traditionally, this noodle and cabbage dish is served with sour cream. It's certainly delicious with the sour cream. Opt for a lower fat dish another night!
I love cabbage, leeks and poppy seeds so this was a dish for me.The only change I made was I sauteed in 4 tbsp of butter and 2 tbsp of olive oil and I added about 1 tbsp of salt. And I used kittencal's homemade egg noodles. Everyone loved it. It was the first time that i have eaten savoy cabbage. i found it sweeter than regular. In my dish i added lemon juice because the only things i like sweet are desserts-im weird that way.
This was pretty good, it was definitely lacking something though I'm not sure what. Thanks for posting :)
I didn't eat this but the family gave it 5 stars. Dallops of sour cream all around but no poppy seeds. I've use carraway seeds in other recipes and my husband loves that but the kids don't.
