A Greek Dish

We've been studying Greece and Rome in History, so we decided to try a Greek dish. I pulled up some options and let the kids choose which one they wanted to cook. They all finally agreed on a cabbage and rice dish.
First, we sauteed our onions then added slices of cabbage.

Next, we added some tomatoes and two cups of water. I used stewed tomatoes, but we could have also cut up fresh ones. I just wanted the extra juice in the stewed ones.
After letting this cook for 10 minutes, we added a cup of rice. We let this cook until the rice was done and had absorbed all of the water. I added salt and a lot of pepper.
Here is the finished product! After it was done, I sprinkled lemon juice over the top of it. Patrick and Carter tried it, but they didn't like it very much. The rest of us loved it!!! I will be making this dish again!

Hi Amz,
Yes, I used salt and a lot of pepper. I also forgot to add that I sprinkled lemon juice over the dish when it was done! I need to go and add that!!
Thanks for the note!

I think I'd be with Patrick and Carter (I don't like cabbage or cooked onions or tomatoes). I love seeing the pictures of it as you cooked it!

That looks SO good!! I want to try that but will have to cut the recipe in half since I am the only one who would eat it. It looked good to me even before the rice was done LOL.

I'll see y'all later :-)

This looks delicious! We are not fans of cabbage here, but it sounds like it would taste great!
