Cabbage stew is an easy to prepare vegan recipe that will serve 4 adults as a main meal with a large tossed green salad. Leftovers can be stored in the covered baking dish in the refrigerator for a few days without loss of flavor.

Wash, peel and dice the onions, and put them in a large covered glass or ceramic baking dish.  Add the paprika, caraway seeds, hot pepper and mix well.  Cook in a conventional oven at 350 degrees F. or in a microwave oven set on high until the onions begin to become translucent.

Wash and clean the cabbage, removing any bad areas.  Set the cabbage on a cutting board or large plate with the stem end down.  Cut the cabbage into 3/4 inch slices.  Place each slice flat on the cutting board or plate and cut both ways to make 3/4 inch square chunks.  Place in the baking dish with the cooked onions.  Add the crushed tomatoes and molasses and mix well. 

Cover the baking dish and cook until the the cabbage is tender.  Mix every 10 to 15 minutes to ensure that the cabbage is cooking uniformly. 

Serve and enjoy!

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
