Directions

Dice cabbage and 1/2 cup onion into small pieces. Add enough water to boil.
Add Parsley, Oregano, Garlic, and Celery salt
Boil until thoroughly cooked.
Drain and save to use later. Save back 1/8 cup pulp
Cook 2 cups rice adding ginger, cloves, and sage
Drain any excess and combine with other seasoned water and pulp to make 1/4 cup.
Combine ground pork, ground beef, and 2 beaten eggs.
Add rice and cabbage/onion mixture to ground beef and pork. Add basil leaves and tumeric and thoroughly work the ingredients together.
Pour into a ring or mold to bake oiling all exposed surfaces of the pan with olive oil. If you don't have a cooking ring you can use an angel food cake pan and put foil underneath to catch any drippings.
Bake at 475 for 35-40 minutes.
When removing remember to take a knife around the edges and middle ring of pan to preserve the ring in tact.
Now you can take the pulp and remaining juice, drain 2 cans of black eyed peas (also good luck food for New Years) replacing it with the seasoned pulp and juice and cook with blackeye peas as a side dish for a serving of 4 traditional good luck foods.
Additional complimentary veggies:sweet potatoes and greens of any kind.
Serve with cornbread for a traditional southern meal.
