Cabbage noodles is a classic Hungarian recipe, traditionally made with egg noodles. This easy vegan version, made with bowtie pasta, has extra eye appeal and is streamlined with bagged coleslaw cabbage. Prepped coleslaw makes it a breeze and has the added benefit of colorful carrots in the mix.
This is a simple, mild dish, and though it’s tasty, there’s no “flavor bomb” ingredient — so, you’ll have to use a judicious hand with salt and pepper.
Of course, you can always use shredded fresh green cabbage — see the note following the recipe. The characteristic ingredient in this dish is a sprinkling of poppy seeds.
For a complete meal, serve with a simple bean dish or sautéed vegan sausage. Add a salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers. Recipe adapted from the forthcoming 5-Ingredient Vegan by Nava Atlas.
