- Cabbage cigar
In a hot skillet with oil, cook the mushrooms, onion and pepper. Add the zucchini and garlic and cook for another 2 minutes. Deglaze with the white wine and reduce until almost all the liquid has evaporated.
Add the barley and minced meat that you cooked earlier. Add the egg and combine thoroughly.
Lay out a cabbage leaf and place roughly a half cup of the stuffing in the center. Roll and fold over the edges as to make sure that the stuffing will not fall out.
In an oven proof dish, lay out most of the tomato sauce on the bottom, then line the cigars up side by side on top of the sauce. Place the rest of the sauce on top and sprinkle with the feta cheese.
Cover and bake for roughly 1 hour.
You can count 2 cigars per person for a hearty lunch, depending on the appetite. All that is left is to re heat them in your Lock&Lock Easy Match 1.2 L Rectangular Container by Starfrit in the microwave at lunch time.
