Cooking Time30 min
- 7 red potatoes
- 1/2 pound ground beef
- 1/4 head cabbage, shredded
- 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 large carrot, grated
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds, or more if desired
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt
- 1 tablespoon oil
- pepper, to taste
- splash of white wine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Brown the ground beef in a skillet.
Cook the potatoes in their skins.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Saute the garlic, then onion, until soft.
Add the mushrooms, sautee until they shrink a bit; add the cabbage, then a splash or two of white wine. Continue stirring until the cabbage softens a bit.
Add the carrots, sunflower seeds and raisins. Stir and set aside.
Mash the potatoes with a hand masher. They should not be too smooth; the chunks of skin should still be noticable.
Add the butter and yogurt to the potatoes, then season with pepper.
Spread the ground beef in a 9" x 9" pyrex baking dish. Layer the mushroom/cabbage mixture with all juices on top of beef. Cover with the potato mixture and smooth it out.
- Bake for 30 minutes; let cool for about 5 minutes and serve.
