  • 1 tablespoon Terra Delyssa Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 lb grass-fed ground lamb (or beef)
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup water (or broth), more or less as needed
  • ½ large head green cabbage (or 1 small), cored and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
Serve Over (optional):
Top With (optional):
  • Fresh dill, lemon wedge, sheep's milk feta or pecorino romano, a drizzle of tzatziki and for a real treat top with a fried egg
  1. In a large pan, dutch oven or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and ground lamb. Sauté until the lamb is cooked about 5- 7 minutes.
  2. Add in the tomato paste, cinnamon, oregano and nutmeg. Stir until well combined.
  3. Add in the cabbage and continue to sauté. You want to cook until the cabbage is gently cooked with a little bite, not mushy.
  4. Add a little water or broth, as needed if it's too dry.
  5. Serve over cauli-rice or rice, zucchini noodles or pasta. Top with fresh dill and crumbled feta, if you'd like.
