“Cabbage is best after it’s reheated seven times.”

Recently I purchased a head of cabbage.  It looked like it wanted to come home with me.  Additionally, I love cabbage.  Not wanting to waste any of this lovely cabbage and not having a taste for slaw or cabbage soup I knew I had to get inventive.

This cabbage adventure also coincided with my husband’s five day trip to a race track with his buddies.  (Is she going any place with this story?)  While he was away I was determined to rid the fridge of leftovers.  The plot thickens.

In the fridge was a bit of cooked rice, a quarter of a raw onion, and about a half cup of borscht.  That was a no brainer.  I sautéed the onion with a bit of the new cabbage.  When it was moderately soft I put it into a microwave dish on top of the rice and a few chunks of butter.  I topped all those layers with the borscht.


A minute or two later I garnished it with some sour cream and enjoyed a most wonderful lunch.


And I still had most of the cabbage left!  On to another cabbage adventure.  Stay tuned.
