Cabbage is a very commonly used vegetable in Bosnia, and one of my favourite cabbage recipes is The Cabbage Parcel! You can put pretty much anything in these parcels, the recipe I'm doing is The Bacon & Feta Cabbage Parcel!
1tsp olive oil
6 pieces of unsmoked bacon
1 small squash- diced
2 carrots- diced
1 large leek
2 garlic cloves
75g of Feta Cheese
one red chilli
8 Savoy Cabbage leaves
200 ml veg stock
1. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the diced squash, carrots, bacon, leak, chilli and garlic for 30 minutes, make sure to stir regulary. If it starts to stick of brun add water to the pan!
2. Let the cooked mixture cool, and in the mean boil the Savoy Leaves for 5 minutes in salty water.
3. Stir the feta, dill, salt and pepper into the cooled mixture and then roll it out onto the Savoy Leaves and create the parcel!
4. Place the rolls in the pan, pair over the veg stock, cover and simmer for ten mins!
This is great as you can take out the bacon and have a veggie meal, and this can be the perfect accompniant to a main or served as a starter!
