Cabbage and Apple Strudel

Cabbage and apple may seem like a strange combination to you but if you’ve ever cooked down cabbage until it was caramelized you know how sweet and meltingly delicious it gets. I grew up on the Hungarian dish of Kraut Lukshen or noodles and cabbage which was a simple dish of caramelized cabbage mixed with pasta and it was out of this world. The apple in this dish just slightly enhances the sweetness of the cabbage and gives it a little bit of interest. This strudel is not meant to be sweet like a kugel but rather with just a hint of sweetness for the new year, so sweeten it to taste- I used a teaspoon of honey to sweeten the mixture but if you prefer it a little sweeter you can add more. I tested this recipe with phyllo dough but I think it would be equally delicious and probably easier in puff pastry. Enjoy!
