This recipe is so easy, and so inexpensive! It’s hearty and filling, perfect for cold autumn and winter days.
- 1 large head of green cabbage, chunked
- a few sweet potatoes or winter squash, peeled and chunked
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 – 2 lb meat chunks (chicken or turkey chunks are also good)
- 2 – 3 fresh sprigs rosemary
- salt to taste
Mix all of the above ingredients in a roasting pan, and cover. Bake for two hours at 350 degrees. Then eat and enjoy!I currently am paying 2 shekel a kilo (about .35 lb) for cabbages and onions. This makes it the cheapest vegetable currently being sold here. We bought three cases of butternut squash last week for 15 shekel, and I have yams that we were given. For the meat chunks, I used diced giblets (also called gizzards, but I dislike how that sounds), which I bought for 5 shekels a kilo (about .75 lb). And since rosemary grows all over Karmiel, I send one of the kids to go out and pick some fresh when I need it. (As I mentioned in yesterday’s menu planning post, I make a menu based on what I have on hand – this is a big part of why my food budget stays so low.)
