Although I’ve lived in North America my whole adult life, my Eastern European roots still show from time to time. Being away from my family is not easy and sometimes I use food to re-connect with home. Growing up with a professional chef (my mom) running the household I learned a lot of great recipes, tips and tricks along the way. Cabbage goulash was one of my favorite dishes growing up. I was so happy that I didn’t have to give it up when I turned paleo. I love it because it’s very hearty and flavorful, but yet has a rich vegetable content as well as pretty inexpensive and easy to make.
- Cabbage belongs to cruciferous family of vegetables, and as such possesses vitamins, fiber, and disease-fighting phytochemicals.
- Avoid using the very core of cabbage stalk, as it takes longer to cook and it’s pretty tough to eat.
- 21 day sugar detox friendly. Just make sure the tomato paste doesn’t contain any sugar.
- This dish tastes best the next day.
