in town for free camps
I have a confession to make. In the wake of the Freep jihad and Brian's article about it (http://mgoblog.com/content/jihad-second-practical-matters), I have been thinking about something. Not all the time, but at least once a week or so.
That something? Curried cabbage.
chop two large onions and around a head of garlic and sweat them in just under a stick of butter; add healthy amounts of turmeric, curry powder, cumin, and salt, then chop a head of cabbage and thinly slice some potatoes and throw them in; cook until everything's soft and glows like it's radioactive
Well, after months of rumination, today was the culmination. Took some 6 tablespoons of butter, melted it. Added minced garlic and onion, sauteed until translucent. Added in a chopped head of cabbage, as well as a bit of water and chicken bouillon. Tossed in a generous amount of curry and cumin. I didn't want potatoes and I was concerned about a lack of protein, so I added a couple cans of rinsed chick peas. Cooked it for about 90 minutes, until the cabbage was super-soft (the chick peas less so). Added some sour cream at the end, and served with some rice. Jihad never tasted so butterrifically good!
If/when I try this again, I may try to adapt it to the slow cooker. Could also probably live with a bit less butter; need to avoid a heart attack when I read of the Freep's next offensive.
Wait, there's a football game going on?
