Spiced Cabbage and Brown Rice with TVP (Vegan)

Submitted by: RASPBERRYBERET

Introduction

This healthy and inexpensive dish was inspired by the beautiful and cheap green cabbages available now at our farmer's market. You can change the spice balance to your tastes - more spice, less spice, Italian spices, Mexican. You can also use meat instead of TVP.

Ingredients

    .5 cabbage head, cored and roughly chopped
    1 cup brown rice (measured dry)
    1.5 cup TVP (measured dry)
    12-oz can tomato sauce
    4-cup carton vegetable broth
    Coriander
    Cumin
    Cinnamon
    Garam Masala
    Garlic powder
    Ground black pepper
    Onion powder
    Fresh cilantro

Directions

Set up rice cooker or pot on stove to cook rice while you're doing everything else. Prep time and cooking time for the rest of the dish is less than cooking time for brown rice (rice was responsible for the 45-minute time), so you might want to plan ahead.

Core and chop cabbage, then put it into a large pot or frying pan. Heat broth on stove or in microwave until close to boiling. Pour approx one cup into a mug and mix spices into it, then pour over cabbage. Pour two cups broth into bowl with TVP and let stand. Turn stove on low and stir cabbage for one minute, then slowly add tomato sauce and remainder of broth, making sure everything is well-mixed. Let the mixture simmer on medium heat until cabbage is tender. Stir in TVP and rice and heat through. Rip up fresh cilantro and mix in just before serving.

Makes approximately 6 servings but can easily be expanded with more rice, cabbage, TVP, or all three!

Note: I don't measure spices when I cook, so start with a smaller amount and slowly stir more in until it suits your taste. Experiment with different spice combinations for a wide variety of meals!
