Hi Jo, and a belated Happy New Year!
I am finally starting to get out of my depression and am cooking again. Alleluia! I have a red cabbage in my refrigerator that I got on sale and I was looking for a recipe. I went to an Octoberfest one time where they had braised red cabbage, which just seemed to be shredded red cabbage that was probably boiled because there was some water to it, but I couldn't make out any seasonings in it so I don't know if they even added any. The only thing I know is that it was the best red cabbage I ever tasted in my life. I tried to make it before, but it didn't come out the same - mine was not as sweet and not as dark in color. I thought maybe it was canned and tried canned red cabbage, but that was stil not it. I was thinking about trying to make it again or making a red cabbage salad. Thinking of making a salad, I immediately went to your VEGAN DELI book and saw the recipe for the red cabbage with apples. Don't have any apples, but I was just wondering if you would suggest I use that recipe and make it without the apples or is there another recipe in one of your other books you would suggest (I haven't looked in your other books yet). If you suggest that recipe, do you think I should add the onion? I don't have any sweet onions on hand, only white and Spanish onions. I don't know if there was any onion in the Octoberfest cabbage I had but if there was, I am assuming it was a sweet onion.
This Asian store where I live finally got in Mori Nu tofu and I have been living off of your Eggless Egg Salad (I like it better with the firm or extra firm silken tofu) for the past two weeks. To start out, all I was adding was dried chopped onion because still coming out of the depression I was too fatigued to chop up any fresh veggies. It is one of my favorite recipes because it is so easy to make and it is healthy and delicious!
Thanks again Jo!
