Cabbage with Lamb, Sumac & Pine Nuts

Cabbage with Lamb, Sumac & Pine Nuts
The original idea for this recipe came from the beautiful cookbook Moro East. It’s my Paleo version of a bulgar wheat pilaf.

Yes, you’re approaching the weekend’s event horizon, but mostly you are in the thick of wrapping up the week at work or school before the long exhale on Friday evening. In short, a Paleo baking project is probably not the first thing on your...
