Cabbage rolls

I never used to call them cabbage rolls, growing up, my mom always called them pigs in a blanket.
So once i got married i decided to share one of my favorite winter meals.  My hubby was so excited when he heard what I was making for dinner…..
And he was just as disappointed when what i served was not little sausages wrapped in pancakes.  Lol

Ingredients:
1 head of cabbage boiled until flexible.
2-3 cloves of garlic minced
1 onion minced
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
1lb ground pork (i used pork sausage this time)
1 lb ground beef
Spices
Grated cheese
Roasted tomatoes,  a can of sauce or left over Spaghetti sauce.                                       Grated cheese.

 

Directions:
Boil cabbage, core and separate leaves
Set aside
In a bowl mix spices (oregano, basil, salt, pepper, fennel, crushed red pepper), Parmesan cheese, and meats together.
In the old days we would add rice to stretch
Mix well
Pull out a couple of baking dishes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spoon meat into cabbage leave and roll tight.  Place roll in pan.
Fill pan, top with sauce or roasted tomatoes and sprinkle lightly with cheese.
Bake for 1.5 to 2 hours and test a small roll

 

Often served with mashed potatoes or mashed cauliflower.

9-12 dates

Cashews
Tomato (Roma)
Cucumber
Lemon
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
Feta cheese (optional)

Directions:
In the food processor Pulse the Parsley and kale until finely chopped.  Add to the bowl.
Next, Pulse the onion and garlic until finely chopped.  add to the bowl and mix well.
Next, Pulse the Cashews  and add to the bowl.  add to the bowl and mix well.
Seed the Tomatoes and skin the cucumber and chop fine by hand
Mix well,

Add Olive oil, Lemon Juice (better to be the juice of one lemon, but concentrate will do in a pinch) and salt and pepper to taste.
I had finely chopped feta cheese to the mixture for my own tastes.

Let sit over night (my own preference) to let the flavors blend.

I have found this new flour.  It’s a little pricey to start with but its certified organic,  raw, and NonGMO.  To me that’s worth the price.

Look at it Here.

On the back of the bag is a recipe for cookies.   The original recipe is pretty good.  It is vegetarian, flourless and eggless.

I altered the recipe a little – because that’s what I do.

Ingredients:

2 TBL water
1 TBL flax
1/2 cup  TigerNut flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 cup Tahini
1 TBL Almond butter
1 TBL Honey
pinch Salt
Chocolate Chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350

Mix the flax and water and place in fridge for 5 minutes (until the flax absorbs the water)

Place TigerNut flour into a mixing bowl
add Baking powder and salt –  mix well
Fold in the 1/2 cup of Tahini
Fold in the Almond butter
Fold in the Honey
Fold in the Chocolate chips

I found that these burn directly on the cookie sheet but do very well baking in ramekins – so that’s what I use now.

Bake for 10-15 minutes,
