Russian Cabbage Pie
  • 3 - 4 cups of shredded cabbage
  • 1 medium onion, cut into petals
  • 3 Eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ cup freshly chopped dill
  • sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • chives or green onion (for garnish)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Steam/saute the onions in a small amount of olive oil until softened.
  3. Meanwhile core the cabbage in shred the leaves into thin strips. Toss the cabbage with the salt in a large mixing bowl and crush it with your hands.
  4. Stir in the onions and dill. Transfer the vegetables to a prepared 9" pie plate (I used cooking spray)
  5. Beat the eggs, then stir in the sour cream and mayonnaise. Add the flour and baking powder and mix to form a batter.
  6. Pour over top the cabbage and onions. I stirred mine all together, but in the original recipe it looks like she spread the batter over the top.
  7. Garnish with the chives and sesame seeds.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top turns golden.
