Cabbage Stuff? This time with chick peas for protein!
Cabbage Stuff? Sounds awful but the kids loved it, and that was the name they gave to this delicious dish which Medzmama created (don't know if it's a traditional Armenian dish, though she was Armenian from Marash, and traditional!)
Here's how you make it.
Peel one large yellow onion; toss the peels into the compost OR save for coloring Easter eggs; (they wouldn't do too well in this dish . . ) and chop or slice the onion; fry up the onion in a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. (Marash Girl likes to add a chopped clove of garlic, but Medzmama says that Armenian cooks from Marash never cook with both onions and garlic but use either one or the other. Marash Girl breaks that rule every time she cooks! Marash Girl doesn't like rules, as you may have guessed by now!)
When the onions are wilted, and hopefully lightly browned, add the cabbage and stir. When the cabbage is wilted, add a can of stewed tomatoes (or fresh tomatoes that have been skinned) and simmer for one half hour.
Serve over brown rice.
OR, if you are a meat eater, add ground meat after the onions are browned; brown the ground meat (usually lamb). Then continue as directed above.
