Subject: Miss corned beef and cabbage around St. Patrick's Day?
Date: March 13, 2005 at 3:34 pm PST
I do. So this year I have a new recipe:
ST. PATRICKâ€™S DAY CABBAGE & CANELLINI BEANS
Â˝ pound dry cannellini beans (or white beans)
Rinse, soak per directions, drain.
Add soaked beans to 2-3 cups of water and boil for 45 minutes.
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 veggie bouillon cube
1 tbsp. yellow mustard powder (Colemanâ€™s, if you can find it)
Â˝ head cabbage, chopped
1 tsp. caraway seeds
3 tbsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. black pepper
Reduce to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes until cabbage is tender.
Stir in ÂĽ cup of whole grain mustard and serve with ice water.
For the dry beans, you can substitute 2 cans of great northern beans or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained. Just add them after the cabbage is cooked, so they wonâ€™t fall to pieces.
This reminds me of corned beef and cabbage, which I always traditionally cooked around St. Patrickâ€™s Day.

Subject: Cabbage and Noodles Paprikash

This recipe looks like nothing much; it has so few ingredients! But trust me, it tastes fabulous. As a variation, the cabbage mixture also goes well over potatoes instead of tossing with noodles.
Cabbage & Noodles Paprikash
2 c. thinly sliced onions
2 T sweet Hungarian paprika
8 c. finely shredded cabbage (one medium-sized head)
2 t. salt (optional?)
12 oz. eggless noodle ribbons
ground black pepper
In a large pot, sautĂ© the onions in water or vegetable broth until they start to turn golden, about 10 minutes. Add paprika and sautĂ© for a few seconds more. Stir in the cabbage (you may need to do this in batches, covering the pot and allowing the cabbage to cook down before adding more). Add the salt and continue to cook for 5 minutes, stirring now and then. Cover tightly and cook on very low heat for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is very soft and slightly browned. The longer you cook it, the better it tastes.
When cabbage is almost done, cook the noodles in boiling water until al dente. Drain and toss with cabbage mixture. Add a generous amount of pepper to individual servings. It is traditional to serve this with applesauce on the side and perhaps a dollop of (soy) sour cream.
A cabbage soup from the old forums by Sandie:
Potato, cabbage, carrot & apple soup
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 medium sized, thin skinned potatoes, chopped
1 small head cabbage, chopped
4 medium sized carrots, chopped
2 medium sized apples, chopped
2 bay leaves
Salt & pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley (optional)
Finely chop all veggies. In a soup pot, sautĂ© onion & garlic in a little water. Add carrots and a little more water, cover pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, using enough water to cover all veggies. Cover pan and cook for 20 â€“ 25 minutes (until all veggies are cooked). Add fresh parsley, if using. Serve with thick, crusty bread!
Note: This makes a large soup pot full so if you're cooking for one, you might cut it in half.
