Nan’s famous cabbage roll recipe with a few tweaks for modern day convenience. Adapted from the “Taste of Home” magazine, this one fuses lasagna with galumpkis in a satisfying way! The non-cabbage lovers in my household can’t resist it… A can of Campbells tomato soup is one of Nan’s secret ingredients, and doesn’t live on the “Staples” list in Veggiescope so you’ll have to make a trip to the grocery store, but I’m willing to bet it’s good without it, too.
Recipes Using Ground Beef
A great comfort food to get you through the winter doldrums (or a depressing Superbowl). This is a very flexible recipe. Turnips, small diced sweet potatoes, and carrots would also work as your primary veggies. Substitute the beef for ground pork, chicken, goat (chorizo!), turkey or tofu (though I’d recommend adding the latter about 30 minutes from the end of cook time). As always, make it your own!
Lacos, or “lettuce tacos” can be an easy way to go gluten-free or paleo with your dinner. It’s also fun and delicious, the ingredients are very flexible, it’s more of a concept than a recipe… Next time you get that big leafy lettuce in your garden or your CSA, consider if it’ll make a nice alternative to a tortilla, and if so, prepare your taco ingredients!
This is a winner of a good old comfort dish. A meal all with enjoy. Try changing it up with some herbs of your choice!
Use your regular chili spices if you’d like, but don’t be afraid to try adding the pumpkin, it will surprise you!
Think of this as a cross between a meat loaf, a cabbage roll, and a lasagna. It’s delicious, and a great way to use that cabbage when you’re unsure what to do with it.
This one is easy and flexible. Simply sauté garlic scapes with arugula in butter. This can top a burger, or be a springy side dish. If you want to enjoy some creamy shiitakes, grab some heavy cream, thyme, and sherry and go to town with that as well!
Although it’s not served on a bun, don’t skip the outside grilling, it really adds to the flavor of this dish. You can choose to serve it on a bun if you’d like, maybe add a ginger mayo to the mix?
Children and adults alike enjoy mini foods. This beef chili is served in a mini potato cup. My family loved this one, I’m sure yours will too.
Amazing flavor packed into this dish. I used my leftovers in little hand pies for lunch the following day.
