telesilla: 1950s woman in kitchen (cooking)

So there was a cabbage in the box this week. I've got a recipe for cabbage and beans that we really liked, but I don't have any beans. However, I do have lentils and so I went looking for a cabbage and lentil recipe and found this recipe. I messed with it some, adding bacon for flavor (which can totally be left out if you want to make this vegetarian) and a can of diced tomatoes because I liked the tomatoes in my cabbage and beans recipe. I took the chili out because a) we don't like chilies and b) I don't have any. I also didn't have a bay leaf, which is sad. *puts on list*

The result is very tasty. Cooking the cabbage in advance like this deals with the bitterness and the bacon adds a really nice smokey flavor. I can tell that it's going to be even better tomorrow. Even though it's late May here in the Sacramento Valley, it's been very cool and so this is perfect food for the weather.

Quick and Easy Pickled Beets

A while back I made cucumber sunomono. I was thinking about it as I looked at the beets in yesterday's box. I used to love pickled beets as a kid and I thought, why not try making beet sunomono?
