I enriched it with quite a few vegetables and made it simply delicious and incredibly nutritious. This easy cabbage with rice and colorful peppers is perfect for this season.

And it is certainly a very economical option since cabbage is one of the most economical vegetables. I personally had it from the village and decided to cook half of it this way.

The vegetables I used in my recipe are: cabbage, carrot, onion, tomato, red peppers and green peppers. I also used celery (which I also had from the village).

I also added a mixture of spices (black pepper, paprika, chili, oregano, thyme), turmeric and salt.

Finally I added wild rice. You can use whatever rice you want.
