I stumbled across this recipe last year in Culinary, when we had to research another countries staple dishes. Looking at it, It's not the most appealing thing in the world. But Sure is Tasty! Traditionally Made with Cabbage or Kale. I prefer to use Kale because I'm not a huge fan of Cabbage...But all the less. It's festive and Tasty. Perfect for St. Patricks Day!!! (I Have also had this with Parsley and a little fresh Basil, and that is also delicious!)
