If you follow me on twitter or are friends with me on Facebook, you know I just moved, as evidenced by the endless tweets complaining about packing and lifting boxes up the stairs. Before that happened, I insisted on eating everything left in the fridge, for two reasons: 1) I didn’t want to move a fridge full of food 2) I was poor from all of the moving expenses and couldn’t buy food. Thus, takeout was quickly eliminated, too.
A few days before the move I looked in the fridge and found cabbage. Just cabbage. I don’t even eat cabbage really, but it was leftover from a juice cleanse my roommate and I tried the week before. We’re not talking about that. I was trying to think of what else I eat cabbage in….and I thought about my grandmother’s stuffed cabbage rolls, or galumpkis as we call them. I don’t know how to make them…and I knew I didn’t have the proper ingredients. But could I lazily throw the random ingredients into a bowl? I could. After a few trips to google, the stuffed cabbage bowl was born. This is about as authentic as Mexican from Taco Bell, but you know what? Live outside the box, people. This is genius, and delicious.
