Unstuffed cabbage

Unstuffed cabbage

This dish is one that my mother made for us all the time. It is so simple, so delicious and so comforting. The problem was, everytime I made it I felt something was missing. I have changed a few ingredients from Moms original recipe and I think it tastes just wonderful. Just don’t tell mom. This is still, to this day one of my favorite comfort foods. Enjoy!!
