Balcan Style Cabbage (Balkan Lahana Asi)
½ medium cabbage, chopped
1 onion, chopped
½ cup whole grain bulgur
2 cups whole milk
1 tbsp salt
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp red pepper
A pinch of salt
In a large pot, place the oil and chopped onions. Sauté for 4 minutes over low-medium heat. Then add the chopped cabbage. Cook for 5 minutes over high medium heat stirring occasionally.
Then add the milk and salt. When the bubbles come out on the surface, add the bulgur and stir. Over low heat, cook for about 25 minutes, till the bulgur is soft.
For garnish, place the butter in a small frying pan and melt over the low-medium heat. When it starts spitting, stir in the red pepper and salt. Pour on the cabbage.
It is a very healthy dish. Cabbage contains so much fiber and whole grain bulgur is very nutritious.
