Solyanka from moosewood

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guilty using a whole cup, no sunflower seeds as mine were dead, was going to use 1/2 c of ricotta but it was 6 months out of date.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.

    Sauce
    1/2 cup mayonnaise
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    2 teaspoons sriracha, more or less to taste
    Pancakes
    5 large eggs
    1 teaspoon soy sauce
    1 teaspoon sesame oil
    1 teaspoon sea salt
    1/3 cup AP flour
    2 cups cabbage, shredded with a mandoline or finely chopped
    1 bunch scallions, trimmed and chopped
    3/4 cups (roughly) baby or chopped shrimp
    canola oil for frying
    1-2 tablespoon toasted sesame seed
    bonito flakes (optional)
  • Whisk the first set of ingredients together and voila, your sauce. Set aside while you make the pancakes.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs with the soy sauce, sesame oil, and salt. Gradually add the flour until incorporated. Fold in cabbage, scallions, and shrimp.
  • Warm a couple glugs of canola oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until glistening. Ladle the batter into the skillet as you would for regular old pancakes. I usually make them about the size of saucer. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes or until golden brown. Keep pancakes covered in a warm oven as you make the rest. Scatter sesame seeds and/or bonito flakes on top of pancakes and serve with dipping sauce and a cold pilsner.  Makes roughly a dozen pancakes depending on their size

How to Ferment Cabbage and Make Sauerkraut

http://toriavey.com/toris-kitchen/2013/06/how-to-ferment-cabbage-and-make-sauerkraut/
Fermentation crock
Cabbage – amount varies based on your needs (we used 2 large heads)
Large mixing bowl
Kosher salt
Kitchen scale
2 fermentation weights
Medium saucepan

Start by boiling 6 cups of water with 1 tbsp of kosher salt till salt is dissolved. Allow to cool.

Meanwhile, clean your cabbage and pull off 5-6 of the external whole leaves, set aside. Shred the remaining cabbage.

Cover the bottom of your fermenting pot with 3-4 whole cabbage leaves. You will only need two layers of whole leaves in the crock, one on the bottom and one on the top.

You will need to salt the shredded cabbage before adding it to the fermentation pot. We found this is easiest to do in smaller batches, to keep the salting amount consistent and mixed throughout the fermentation crock. Measure out 2 pounds of shredded cabbage into a bowl (we zeroed our scale with the bowl on, then measured a 2 pound batch).

Place the salted, shredded cabbage into the fermentation pot on top of the whole leaves.

Measure out another 2 pounds of the shredded cabbage and mix with 1 tsp of salt, then add to the fermenting pot. Repeat this process in batches until all of your shredded cabbage has been salted and added to the pot. Pack down the cabbage tightly, but do not crush the cabbage strips.

Cover the top of your shredded cabbage with remaining whole cabbage leaves. These leaves will help to collect the yeast and mold that may accumulate at the top of the crock, and can easily be removed and discarded after the fermentation process is complete.

Place stone fermentation weights on top of the whole cabbage leaves and press down, but not too hard. You don’t want to damage the cabbage.

Cover the fermentation crock with a lid. The salt will naturally draw some water out of the cabbage. After a few hours, check to see how much liquid has accumulated inside of the pot. It should be about 1-3 inches above the cabbage. If this hasn’t happened, add cooled, boiled salt water to the pot. We ended up needing about 3-4 cups of salt water. Pour it over the cabbage till it is submerged (you may not need to do this if your cabbage has created enough natural liquid). Reserve the remaining salt water.

Once the water level is where it should be, cover the pot and fill the channel around the lid with cooled salt water to create an airtight seal. This will keep oxygen out of the pot. Once this has been done, do not open the fermentation pot for at least 2 weeks. No peeking! Reserve the remaining salt water brine in a sealed container in the refrigerator; you will need it over the course of the next several weeks.

For the first few days, store the pot in a warm place, between 68 and 72 degrees. After a few days have passed, listen for a fizzy, bubbling sound coming from the pot. This is good and means that fermentation has begun. If you don’t hear anything, don’t worry, it may just mean that the walls of your crock are too thick for sound to travel through. After fermentation has started, move the pot to a cool place, between 59 and 64 degrees, for the remaining fermentation time. If you don’t hear anything after 1 week, go ahead and move the crock to a cooler location without waiting for it to sound bubbly.

Check your water channel regularly to make sure that it’s filled with salt water. At times, the pressure which builds up inside the crock can cause suction, which pulls the channel water into the crock (it happened to us a few days in). If this happens, pour more of the salt water into the channel to keep it full.

After the first 2 weeks, check your sauerkraut’s brine level and skim off any mold or bubbles that have gathered near the top. Be sure that your cabbage is always submerged in the brine. Fermentation breeds strange sounds and smells, so try not to worry about those. Close the fermentation crock again and refill the channel with salt water.

Your sauerkraut should be ready in about 4-6 weeks. You will know for sure once bubbles no longer appear in the liquid. The longer you allow the cabbage to ferment, the tangier the flavor will be.

Ridiculously Easy Southwestern Coleslaw

southwestern-coleslaw

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1/2 medium cabbage
2 carrots
1-2 hot chile peppers, thinly sliced or chopped
5-6 tablespoons salsa verde
1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons vegan mayo or lite silken tofu
1/2 teaspoon agave nectar (or other sweetener)
1/4 teaspoon cumin

salt to taste

  1. Remove and discard the core of the cabbage, and cut cabbage in half. Use a food processor fitted with a shredding disk to shred the cabbage and carrots. Place in a serving bowl along with the sliced chile pepper.
  2. Whisk all remaining ingredients together until smooth. (If you’re using silken tofu, you may need to blend it in a small blender or food processor.) Add the dressing to the cabbage and mix well. Add salt to taste. Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Check seasonings before serving and add more salsa, lime juice, cumin, or salt if necessary.

Vegan Corned Beef and Cabbage


This dish is not only delicious, but it’s remarkably low in fat and calories. Don’t wait for a special occasion to serve it! From http://fatfreevegan.com/

2 medium onions, cut into wedges
1/2 head cabbage, finely chopped or shredded (I used red cabbage this time)
4 carrots, cut into 2-inch lengths and quartered
2 ribs celery, thickly sliced
4 cups vegetable broth
1 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon mild horseradish
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
6-8 ounces vegetarian “beef” or seitan or reconstituted TVP chunks (I used Lightlife Strips)
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon red wine or cooking sherry (really adds great flavor)

Saute the onion in a large, non-stick pot until it starts to brown. Add the remaining vegetables, the broth, and the seasonings. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Add the “beef,” cover, and cook for 15 more minutes, until vegetables are soft.

Use a slotted spoon to remove the vegetables and “beef” to a serving plate and keep warm. Return the broth to the heat. In a small cup, combine the flour, water, and wine. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the simmering broth. Cook and stir, scraping the bottom of the pan, until the broth has thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the gravy over the “beef” and vegetables to serve. Makes 4 servings.

Note: I added potatoes with other veggies along with parsley.
