Directions

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a casserole that will hold at least 16 cups, or use 2 smaller casserole dishes (I use a small size roaster for this recipe).
  3. Place the chopped onions and the garlic on the bottom of a greased casserole.
  4. Shred the cabbage using a sharp knife, or use a food processor (it should measure about 7 cups).
  5. Place all the chopped veggies in a large bowl with the rice.
  6. In another bowl, stir tomatoes with their juice, 1 cup tomato juice, sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and Dijon mustard until well mixed.
  7. Stir into the cabbage mixture, using a folding motion, until evenly blended.
  8. Transfer to the casserole dish on top of the onions (do not stir!) cover with a lid.
  9. Bake in the oven for 1-1/2 hours; then stir well every half an hour until the cabbage is soft and the rice is done.
  10. Stir in the chopped fresh tomatoes (if using).
  11. Optional; for a cheesy flavor, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese may be sprinkled on top before baking.
