100_7921notes: I made a few changes due to what was in the kitchen.  Less cottage cheese though close to 1.5 c. that was all I had, more cabbage than 4 c. but not much more, 1/2 c sour cream as it’s full fat and I would have felt guilty using a whole cup, no sunflower seeds as mine were dead, was going to use 1/2 c of ricotta but it was 6 months out of date.  I sprinkled paprika over the top even though I’m not a big fan.

4 Medium Potatoes
4 Packed Cups Shredded Green Cabbage
1½ cups Chopped Onion
3 Tbsp Butter
1½ tsp Salt
Black Pepper
Paprika
½ tsp Dill Weed
¼ cup Sunflower Seeds, divided
1½ cups Cottage Cheese
½ cup Sour Cream
½ cup ricotta
2 Tbsp Cider Vinegar

Scrub, don’t peel, the potatoes and cut them into small pieces. Boil until mashable. Drain and mash, while still hot, with cottage cheese, sour cream and yogurt. Saute onions in butter with 1/2 tsp. salt. After 5 minutes, add cabbage and remaining salt. Saute until cabbage is tender. Combine with potato mixture, and add everything except 2 tablespoons of the sunflower seeds and the paprika. Taste to correct seasonings. Spread into a deep, buttered casserole and top with paprika and remaining sunflower seeds. Bake at 350 degrees, uncovered for 35-40 minutes.
