Method

  • Preheat the oven to 180 deg cel gas mark 4 and grease a deep ovenproof dish.
  • Cook the rice in boiling water for 10-15mins or until just tender.
  • Meanwhile remove approx. 8 of the outside cabbage leaves.
  • Wash the removed leaves, halve and remove the midribs.
  • Blanch these in boiling salted water for 15 mins then drain and set aside.
  • Chop the remaining cabbage. Peel, core and chop the apple.
  • Melt the butter in a pan add the onion and saute for a few mins until soft.
  • Add the chopped cabbage and continue to cook over a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring.
  • Add the chopped apple and cook for a further min or so.
  • Drain the rice and add to the pan of onions, cabbage and apple together with the dates, orange zest and juice.
  • Stir well then remove from heat.
  • Line the base and sides of the prepared dish with half the blanched cabbage leaves, overlapping each leaf and making sure the cabbage is overhanging the top.
  • Stir the cheese and egg into the rice mixture, season with salt and pepper then turn into the cabbage lined dish.
  • Level the surface and cover with remaining cabbage leaves and fold over the overhanging cabbage.
  • Cover as tightly as possible with foil and bake for 45 mins.
  • To serve loosen the sides with a knife and turn the 'pie' out onto a warmed serving platter.
