Serve this delicious and comforting meatless cabbage dish without mentioning that it's vegetarian and nobody will miss the meat, I promise 😉 It's so tasty you'll even be asked for the recipe by meat lovers, like me.
Served it with white plain rice on the side.
Doesn't look like it's missing anything!
Oh my, this sounds and looks just delicious! I'm copying the recipe right now so I can make it 🙂
yumm looks delicious , have a nice day Erica
Thank you for all the recipes. I used three of them for dinner last night to celebrate my Columbian sponsored daughter's (with Compassion International) birthday. My family loved them all! We had the Cabbage with sweet potato and coconut milk, Avocado-Corn Salad with lime vinaigrette (my favorite) and Pineapple-coconut crisp with vanilla ice cream. Delicious, and fun to do a Columbian night! Thanks!
This sounds exceptional, Erica, and the color is so vibrant that it's really eye catching.
Shredded sweetened coconut or unsweetened..big difference to not be noted?
Thank you everyone for visiting my site!
I volunteered to make dinner for some Columbian and American friends. I saw your recipes and they looked so good that I thought I'd try them out. I made the Chicken wings with ilantro Sauce, Shredded Beef, Cole Slaw, Cabbage and Potatoes, and the Torta de Arequipe. Needles to say, I spent the afternoon cooking, but everyone loved it. My favorites were the Torta, Cabbage and Potatoes and the Cole Slaw! Thanks for the great recipes.
Does this dish have a traditional name?
No.... This is my creation.....My husband used to be a vegetarian and I made that for him!
thank you for a great recipe, already cooked it several times, it is delicious 🙂
I love this dish and have made it several times already. Thanks for sharing.
This is simply AMAZING! Thank you. My home smells wonderful.
Fantastic recipe! I have just cooked it, it tastes super!
Very delicious! Thank you!
Awesome dish! Followed the recipe exactly and the whole family loved it. Thanks!
A really delicious yet simple recipe. Very comforting.
Delicious. A fabulous and comforting meal. And it’s so straightforward to make. I will make this many more times I’m sure.
Thank you so much.
Delicious, we used Quinoa instead of rice. Great flavors. Thank you!
This was a great recipe. Nice to shake things up with these ingredients . The lime added a nice subtle twist to compliment the flavor of coconut . I may be inclined to added a slightly more red pepper but if course that’s a personal taste. Thank you !
This recipe is excellent and will be repeated for years to come. I too added more red pepper. Thanks
This recipe is pretty easy to prepare and very delicious. I added lentils (partially cooked before adding along with the potatoes).
Thank you for this recipe! I will definitely make this again.
Absolutely delicious! We made in the instant pot by sautéing onion first and then pretty much everything else under high pressure for 20 minutes. Added frozen peas and let sit for a couple minutes and ready to serve. Probably could shorten the cook time to 15 minutes to leave the potatoes a little firmer. Had over jasmine rice and just wonderful, filling, tasty and healthy!
