Our weekly vegetable basket from Fresh Roots CSA had a giant head of cabbage in it. What do you do with all that cabbage? As my Baba always says, when life gives you kapusta you make cabbage rolls. So, I invited a few friends over for a cabbage roll making / board game playing party.
I used this recipe for vegan cabbage rolls, but need to triple the amount of filling and only used a single head of cabbage. I also replaced the TVP with chickpeas. There was more than enough for 8 people to eat, plus leftovers for everyone to take home.

I didn’t go home to Manitoba for Christmas this year, which meant I missed the traditional Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner and the time spent playing board games in Baba’s basement. In an attempt to reproduce that in Vancouver, Emily and I hosted her family for a Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner. Ukrainian Christmas Eve dinner is traditionally a 12-course “vegetarian” meal (which includes fish), but we had the additional complication of making it vegan and gluten-free.
Our menu for the evening included:
- Holubtsi (cabbage rolls)
- Mushroom Gravy
- Pickled Garlic Scapes
- Maple Glazed Salmon
- White Beans
- Baked Apples
