This is a very easy dish, ideal in winter as cabbage is a winter vegetable. My mother comes from Bulgaria, so I used to eat a lot of cabbage in red sauce with meat when I was little, typical bulgarian way to cook cabbage. As I stopped eating meat a few years ago and also cook without oil, I wanted to adjust this favorite dish to my new standards!

So one day, when my mother came to visit, we decided to give it a try together. Besides cabbage, we used other vegetables too, whatever we found in the fridge that day. We used homemade tomato sauce, which I make every summer. Her favorite spices, bay and allspice blended perfectly too! Finally instead of minced meat, we used minced soy which makes this dish ideal for periods that you are on a diet to lose weight since it’s gonna make you full with less calories and fat.

This has become one of our winter favorites since then!

1 chopped onion
1 leek cut in thin slices
2 carrots cut in thin slices
4 tbsp chopped selery
1 jar of homemade tomato sauce or one can tomato sauce from the store
100gr minced soy
2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp vegetable powder without sugar
500gr chopped cabbage
3-4 bay leaves
1/2 tsp allspice
olive oil for serving



Put the onio, leek and carrots in a pot and let them boil in a bit water, for about 2-3 mins.


Add the tomato sauce and minced soy, mix all the ingredients well, add a little bit of water to prevent them from sticking in the pot and let them boil for another 2-3 mins.


Add water, just about to cover all your ingredients and add the rest of the ingredients, except the oil, mix well and let the food boil over medium heat for about 30 mins. Leave it longer if you wish for it to have less water, check and adjust to your liking.


Serve with 1 tbsp olive oil drizzled over each dish.
