My mom used to always make this cabbage and noodle dish. It was soooo good and so darn oily sometimes too.
Its Polish, I believe and this tastes alot like it.
1 head small cabbage, chopped
1 pinch salt
black pepper, to taste
Chop up the cabbage and toss with salt. Careful with the salt too, my first batch I had to rinse off because it was too salty. Pack mixture tightly in a container.. it has to have pressure. Put a lid on it.
You need to let this sit out for at least 3 days.. the more the better. You are fermenting it, I believe.
After complete, take out and mix with some pepper and taste. The pepper really makes it.
You can also add buckwheat groats if you like, or avocado. Experiment!
