- 1 medium head of cabbage chopped into small pieces — I used savoy cabbage
- 2 tomatoes diced — I used 3 canned tomatoes, cut up, and some of their liquid
- 1/4-1/2c diced onion
- 1 & 1/2 tbsp oil
- 1 tsp cumin seeds
- 1 tsp mustard seeds (I used brown)
- a heavy pinch of garam masala
- cilantro for garnish – I skipped
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat oil and add cumin, mustard and onions. Brown, then add cabbage and diced tomato. Salt & pepper.
Cover and toss until fully cooked and a bit browned. Add tomato liquid or water if needed (I added ~1/4c of water). Add a pinch of garam masala a couple minutes before it’s finished. Garnish with cilantro.
This recipe produces a full 10″ skillet worth. Probably 6-8 non giant burritos.
- 1 cup chopped walnut pieces
- 3/4 cup uncooked brown lentils
- 1/2 cup chopped white onion
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano – didn’t have any
- 1 tablespoon ground cumin
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tsp garlic & onion powders
- 1/4-1/2c broth
- Simmer lentils until tender (~15-20 depending on soaking). Set aside
- Toast walnuts. Set aside.
- Saute the onions and spices in a pan, once they’re translucent (but not caramelized), add the lentils and walnuts. Toss and add some broth until it’s appropriately damp.
Ideas for next time:
- Add canned tomatoes, mushrooms?
- Season differently (pomegranate syrup & pita?)

Rub ~1 lb ish okra (a few handfuls, dry) with salt to remove the hairs. Then blanch in lightly salted water for 2 minutes and 30 seconds in small batches. (The youtube video suggests 2 minutes, that was more crisp than I’d like)
Drain, cool in a bowl of ice water. Pat dry. Chop into bite size pieces & mix with the sauce.
1 tbsp tahini
3-4 tbsp toasted sesame seeds, roughly ground (measure before the mortar & pestle)
2 tbsp light soy
1 tsp mirin
1 tsp sake
2 tsp sugar
I liked the mix of the smooth tahini with the chunky coarsely ground sesame seeds.
