Sour cabbage

I am more in the mood for the old school classic during winter time. Spring is way too light for heavy food, strong and dark colors. cabbage000irenasdots

3 spoons olive oil
2 large onions, cropped 
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 spoon flour by your choice
1 red pepper, cut in little squares
2 cups mixed garden vegetables (green beans, orange carrot, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts)
2 cup sour cabbage
2-3 laurel  leaves
sweet pepper powder, chilly sauce or powder
sausage by your choice

Slowly bake cropped onions on hot olive oil in a 4 L/1 gallon cocotte till light brown.  Add flour and tomato sauce and cook for another couple of minutes. Ad vegetables and cook for another couple of minutes. On the end add cabbage, all spices and 2-3 cups of hot water. Cook slowly for about 30 minuter. If necessary add more hot water, but on the end all should evaporate. Chilly ad before serving as cooking takes his sharpens 😉 Cook or bake your sausage – depends on sausage type and your taste.


That is just a version of traditional dish. Dark red chequer tablecloth, carnation bouquet and a good dark red wine goes perfectly together with it 😉

Enjoy your day!



  1. Making me really hungry. Your photo looks gorgeous!

    1. Thank you Irene 😉

  2. That looks so good and hearty. I love your his and her plate 😀

    1. Thanks, so nice to read that from you 😉 Is it that obviously that is his/her? 😉

      1. I remember you don’t eat meat, so that other plate has to be for him 😀

      2. He he, good guess and perfect memory 😉

  3. The his/her thing is always astonishing in all your posts indeed! Just like in our home 🙂
    Now, what I was wondering
    a) what delicious looking type of bread is that?
    b) why has the deadly spice three colors?!

    1. You made my day with that 🙂
      a) regular bread with added cut sun-dried tomatoes
      b) 🙂 because it is made of three different chilis 🙂 – my brother and my dad invention for my last birthday 🙂

      1. What a great birthday gift! – I love the skull…very boy-ish and a real brother&dad present! Haha! Amazing. 🙂
        Sun-dried tomatoes do instantly bring some sun and summer in…I should add some to my next bread.

      2. Skull was like a joke as there are just the strongest chilies in it 🙂 It was a big surprise for me as well as they never did something like that when we were kids!
        Sun-dried tomatoes are exceletn add to almost any dish 😉

  4. That sausages looks interesting 🙂

    1. 🙂 The large one is ‘regular’ but small ones are vegetarian. There is no excuse 😉
