I’ve made this recipe a few times many times, with homemade tomato sauce, but I’ve never bought red cabbages before. I swear one of the happiest moment of my other day was the purple red cabbage juice that was produced by boiling the cabbages together. LOVE! Not great photographs, and not having light or a great table to work / photograph on. I DO two things from my single days, which just is a moment to be real about how the compromising works - I miss the SUN streaming over my Boos kitchen work table to create amazing photo sessions of my food. I probably would have kept Purple Jar out longer as decoration … Intentions intentions! Get that sun in our kitchen and pull out my Boos table. It WILL happen. Meanwhile, there is design potential in absolutely everything, and I can’t get over how gorgeous the purples are.
The recipe’s stuffing is sautéed onion and Swiss chard, soft red currants, spinach, apricots, pine nuts, ground turkey (optional), brown rice, egg, garlic and chopped cabbage from the very inside of the cooked cabbages. Lots of black and white pepper, a few chili flakes. Food for the week AND design inspiration.
