Torta de repolyo or cabbage omelette is a traditional Colombian dish served with tomato sauce. It can be a light lunch or served as a side. I recently tried in in a restaurant and it was so delicious that I had to find a recipe to do at home. This yummy omelette calls for white cheese, but any kind of cheese would do just fine.
Makes 8 Servings
1/2 cup melted butter
3 scallions, finely chopped
1 large cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 lb. white cheese, shredded
5 eggs, beaten
1 cup of milk
1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1/4 cup fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Tomato sauce for serving
Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat, Sauté the scallions in butter for 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add the cabbage and cook it for another 15 minutes or until it becomes tender and a little translucent. Season it with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer it to a bowl.
While cooking the cabbage, combine the eggs, milk, cheese, breadcrumbs and parsley in a medium sized bowl. Season it with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Place the cabbage and the egg mixture on a greased baking dish. Bake it for 20-30 minutes at 350F or until the egg is set and the egg is slightly brown. Remove from oven and let it stnd for 2 minutes before serving. Serve with warm tomato sauce.
