Cabbage Potato Pie

Happy Monday everyone!  I want to get this posted early, since I have tons to do today. This is a simple, but filling meal. It was fun to make and it has a nice presentation. I had a green cabbage, a red cabbage, and some potatoes to use up, and I was inspired by the quiche I bought at my son's school last week. I wanted to make something pie-ish, but vegan. This is one of the meals I came up with. I also made a variation of this which was delicious, and I will post it later this week.


Cabbage Potato Pie

5 large potatoes, diced and boiled about 15 min. till tender
6 green cabbage leaves
1 red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 head red cabbage, shredded
1 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. caraway seeds

Preheat oven to 350. Par-boil cabbage leaves in boiling water 4 min., drain, reserving 1/2 c. cooking water. In a pie plate, arrange leaves in a rosette, with ribs in center of plate, and the leaves hanging over the edge of the dish, overlapping the leaves. Saute onion, garlic and shredded cabbage in some of the reserved water 5-6 min. till tender, stir in seasonings. Stir cooked veggies into potatoes, place on top of cabbage. Fold cabbage leaves over the filling. Cover with foil and bake 40 min. Enjoy!

Here's a photo showing how to arrange the leaves-

Then add the potato filling and fold the leaves over it.-

       Voila! Then cover and bake.

This looks so good. Cabbage and potato go so well together. And it is a pretty presentation indeed. I love that when you cut into the pie, you get the color surprise of the red cabbage. Yum! My husband will love this too. Thanks for the recipe.

That looks really yummy. Reminds me of knishes that I had all the time growing up (only without the dough). Bet that would hit the spot when I'm craving some of that old-time flavor. =)

Rose, your welcome. I love colorful food, so using red cabbage made it fun for me:)

JulieLynn, I have never had a knish, but now that you mention it, it does sound kinda similar.

This looks really good. I think when I make it I will add a little homeade sauerkraut. Thanks for the recipe.
