Zucchini Pasta Haluski (Tazaki)

Time to ride my bike. I’m gonna unroll the shorts and let them be as long as possible, to keep from the roaming eyes around the tienda. Then, when I get home, on into town, I can roll them back up, as it’s so hot.


Recipe of the Day – Zucchini Pasta Haluski (Tazaki)


1 very large onion, sliced into rounds
4 T. coconut oil
1 large head cabbage, cut into 1-inch pieces
Salt and pepper
2 T. water, if necessary
1 lg. zucchine, sliced into noodles with mandolin or cia bo


Rinse and slice the zucchini, then pat dry with paper towels. Salt each piece and keep it rolled in the paper towel until ready to use.

Cut each onion slice into four pieces. In a large skillet or Dutch oven, carmelize the onion in  half the oil, stirring frequently, over low heat until lightly browned, about 15 minutes.

Add the cabbage pieces and remaining oil, salt and pepper to taste, and a little water, if necessary. Sauté, stirring frequently, over low heat until cabbage is tender but not brown, about 30 minutes.

Combine onion-cabbage mixture with the zucchini noodles mixing well. Adjust seasonings and serve. OR, heat oven to 350 degrees. Or bake in a casserole dish 30 minutes until lightly browned. Serve immediately.
