Winter vegetables might not seem like the snazziest of the bunch. When compared with bright summer tomatoes and zucchini or sweet autumn squash and sweet potatoes, how could cabbage really stand a chance? Luckily, with a bit of love, that all changes. The recipe that follows shows off the full potential of this winter crucifer.
Inspired by Russian cabbage pie, for this recipe, cabbage and onion are first caramelized in butter until rich and sweet before being layered with a sour cream batter. The resulting casserole is homey and warming – the perfect comfort food treat for any cold winter's evening.
