*This is a pinch outside of our traditional family recipe, but I’d say a delicious little deviation. To my family, don’t worry… I made a perfectly traditional green cabbage version right along side while I was at it!
1 head Napa Cabbage [sliced thin]
1 cup Purple Cabbage [sliced thin]
a few Tbs Safflower Oil
2 cups Russet Potatoes [grated with the fine “hole punch” side of the box grater]
3 cups flour
Sea Salt + Sugar [to taste, for serving]
Heat a few Tbs oil in a large skillet. Add cabbage + saute until nicely browned. Set aside while preparing haluska.
Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Mix grated potato, flour, egg + salt in a medium bowl till well mixed. Dough should be pretty damp, be careful it doesn’t become too stiff.
Pile dough onto a plate + cut small chunks, about the size of a dime into hot boiling water. Cook for about 7 minutes, until haluska float. Scoop haluska from water as they cook + float to the top. Keep warm till all haluska are cooked.
Mix with cabbage. Serve with small bowls of sea salt + sugar on the table depending on your guest’s preference.
Serves 4 a very hearty meal.
