Stewed Cabbage with Mushrooms

Stewed cabbage combines perfectly with fried mushrooms. Despite the fact that there is no meat in the recipe, the dish is hearty and nutritious. Pre-frying cabbage and mushrooms gives each ingredient a saturated and bright taste. Stewed cabbage with mushrooms diversifies the fasting and vegetarian menu. It can be served as a side dish for meat or used as a filling for open pies or yeast cakes. Fresh champignons can be replaced with oysters, butters, birch or white mushrooms. For the recipe, it is best to use white cabbage of late winter types. Young salad or marinated cabbage is not suitable for this dish.
