Haluski is a simple and tasty noodle and cabbage from the eastern Europe region. This is popular comfort meal in Poland, Ukraine, Slovak, and Hungary.
This satisfying, delicious noodles is made with cabbage and onions sautéed in butter with a perfect seasoning of salt and pepper. Butter adds the comforting flavor to this noodle. The heat comes from black pepper alone. Adjust the pepper as per taste. Freshly ground pepper adds tons of flavor to this noodle.
Egg noodles are traditionally used for this recipe. I have replaced it with vegan noodles for this recipe. Any wide noodles can be used. This is a vegetarian version and hence bacon is not included. To make a vegan version, the same can be made using oil instead of butter.
This is a pure comfort noodle. This noodle gives the same satisfaction when you have cabbage curry mixed with ghee rice. As a kid, I did enjoy ghee rice with curry and hence was able to feel those days. My kids loved this noodles. It is simple and easy to prepare and can be easily made for a weeknight dinner. Begin boiling the water to cook noodles when you start chopping the veggies for effective time management. In this way, when the veggies are ready and cooked, noodles would be ready too and finishing the cooking would be easier and quicker. The leftovers are great too. Just reheat and enjoy.
