Polish Inspired Dish

For this recipe, I was inspired by Polish dishes like Kapusta and Bigos. This meal is so warm and cozy! Perfect for that comforting meal we all crave after a long day. It is so easy to prepare, so that is a bonus also! 

Dirty Vegan Cabbage Dish

2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 large head cabbage, sliced
6 oz can tomato paste
1/2 cup water
1 bay leaf
pinch dried thyme
9 oz veggie "meat" (I used Gardein Beefless Tips)
sea salt & pepper to taste

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Saute onion for about 2 minutes, then add mushrooms. Once soft, begin to add cabbage, tomato paste, water, bay leaf, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally until cabbage is soft, then add veggie "meat". Saute on low until cabbage and meat are soft and well cooked. Enjoy with bread, over pasta or rice, or alone. Yum!

 Warm, comforting, and totally delicious!
W zdrowym ciele, zdrowy duch!
