Savoy Cabbage Gratin

I got this recipe from an article in Yoga Journal, and they got it from Georganne Brennan's book, Great Greens.  The recipe makes 4 servings, so I double everything, because I love having leftovers. Enjoy!

Makes 4 Servings

* I make this with Swiss chard and kale, but you can use any greens you have on hand

1 large yellow onion

4 tbsp butter, plus 2 teaspoons

1 head Savoy cabbage, about 2 pounds

1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper

1 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 tbsps each freshly grated Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses

* Use any type of cheese you want to experiment with here,

  next time I'm using Feta

3 tbsps dry breadcrumbs

1. Cut the onion in half lengthwise, then slice it into the thinnest slices possible.

2. In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet with a tightly fitting cover, melt 4 tbsps of the butter over medium heat.  When it foams, add the onions, reduce the heat to low, and cover the pan, letting the onions sweat, stirring them occasionally, until they are nearly dissolving.

3. Cut the cabbage into very thin slices, add add them to the onions.  Fitting them all in the pan will seem impossible, but it will wilt considerably. Put the cover on and cook until the cabbage has wilted, about 10 to 15 minutes. remove the cover and continue to cook, stirring, until the cabbage is soft and translucent, another 10 to 15 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

5. with 1 tsp butter, grease a baking dish, and set aside.

6. Sprinkle the salt, pepper and flour over the the greens, and stir. Increase the heat to high, stirring still, then add the milk, a little at a time, continuing to stir, creating a sauce for the vegetables.   1161984-1102557-thumbnail.jpg

7. When it has thickened, in about 5 minutes, spread the mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.  Mix the cheeses and breadcrumbs together and scatter over the surface. Dot with the remaining butter, and bake until the top is crusty and golden and the edges are bubbling, about 20 minutes.

8. Serve hot from the serving dish.

I have another really great dinner recipe you can add to your list,
Lettuce Wraps (Healthy and so good)

Saute some garlic and onion with ground lean turkey meat.
On the side in a bowl mix
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbs soy souce
2 tbs rice viniger
1 tbs sugar
1 tbs toaster sesame oil
2 tsp corn starch
1 tsp hot chili oil or red pepper flakes, whatever you have
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
Add to turkey and let simmer on low heat for 5-10 minutes

Cook some steamed brown rice
Get some sliced carrots and let them sit in rice vinegar while you cook the turkey.
Also peel a cucumber and then slice with a veggie peeler so they are thin and let sit in rice vinegar as well.
Get some bib lettuce
top with turkey, carrots, cucumber and rice and eat like a taco, it's sooooo good, one of mine and Jeremy's favorite's
It sounds like a lot but once you have the ingredients you can make it a couple times.

I'm so glad you posted this recipe. I also got it out of Yoga Journal and lost it. Amazingly I could find the article on their web site but not the acutal recipe. I love this one. I usually use a bag of mixed greens I buy at Trader Joes and it is great. Thanks.

You know I tried to find the recipe too, but couldn't find it on their site. Luckily I found the hard copy! What a great idea about the mixed greens.
