Cabbage in tomato sauce

by | Jul 30, 2021 | Vegetable dishes

Cabbage in tomato sauce is one of those divisive canteen foods in Hungary, which either appeals to you or gives you the shivers. However, homemade version may have a surprise in store for those too who are not die-hard fans of this dish.

I used to refuse to eat cabbage in tomato sauce because I found it too heavy and watery. It is usually made with roux and cabbage is cooked in water before adding tomato juice, but a few years ago I stumbled on a recipe that omitted roux and water, and the result was a light and delicious food. Since then I cook cabbage in tomato sauce 2-3 times a year and serve it with roasted pork ribs.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
