Delicious Savoy Cabbage Cake

Delicious Savoy Cabbage Cake

This savoy cabbage cake is another Autumn recipe I like so much. It has all those warm ingredients that are so comforting during these cooler days: broth, bread, cheese and cabbage. It is pretty simple to prepare and is pleasant to the sight, when presented at the table.

I prepared it the other day for lunch and it was too much for me and my husband. So I ate it for lunch the day after. I warmed it on a non adherent pan and it was delicious the same.

It can be a light vegetarian meal (just use a veggie broth), it has the carbohydrates, proteins and (little) fat. I used the loaf bread I have at home (soy and cereal one), but you can use the one you prefer…or have at home ;-).

Enjoy 🙂
