This was my very first post, along with a smoothie recipe, but I don’t feel it gets much viewing because of my format then, so, I have decided, since it’s so good, it deserves its own attention and it’s the perfect time of year for it!
This dish is great with Brown Rice or Quinoa, on the side, or on its own! Also, for a vegetarian version, leave out the beef and substitute with Mushrooms or not!
1 lb Lean Ground Meat (organic)
2 cups Cabbage, med chopped
2 med Leeks, chopped (whites only)
1 can Kidney Beans, rinsed well
2 cups Tomato puree
1/2 cup good White Wine, or water
2 tsp garlic powder or chopped fresh
Sea Salt (to taste)
In a deep skillet with a lid, brown meat on med heat and discard excess grease
Rinse chopped Leeks and add to meat
Stir together and add chopped Cabbage
Mix well and cook on med low till soft
Add Wine or Water and bring to boil on med high
Add Tomato puree, Kidney Beans, garlic, salt and Hot Chilies
Cover and turn heat to low
Simmer for about 30 min or until Cabbage is soft
Plate and drizzle with Olive Oil.
Adding the Olive Oil at the end, brings all the flavors out and enhances your dish, as well as keeping the oil in a super healthy state!
