Stuffed Cabbage Rolls
Makes 6 servings
- 1 cup long grain white rice
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 medium head cabbage (3 pounds), leaves separated
- 1 pound ground bison or Boca Veggie Crumbles
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 can (32oz) tomato sauce, divided
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
- 2 teaspoons dried dill
- 1 teaspoon ground savory
- 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
- Salt and pepper to taste
*If making this meal to eat right away, heat oven to 400 degrees and bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves to the hot water and allow to boil for 1-2 minutes until they just start to wilt. Carefully, remove from the hot water and set aside to cool. If you are meal prepping this, then skip as microwaving the cabbage rolls will be enough to soften cabbage*
In a small pot, add water and rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and partially cover with a lid. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat and cover.
In a large skillet, add olive oil and ground bison or veggie crumbles and onion. Cook until bison is no longer pink or veggie crumbles are hot. Drain excess fat and add half the garlic, tomato sauce, parsley, dill, savory and diced tomatoes. Cook and stir for one to two minutes. Add cooked rice and stir.
Scoop filling by 3/4 – 1 cup into cabbage leaves. Roll cabbage around filling then place into meal prep containers (these will look messy!!). Drizzle remaining tomato sauce over the top.
*If eating right away then scoop filling by 3/4 -1 cup into the boiled cabbage leaves. Roll around the filling then place in a 9x13in baking dish. Drizzle with tomato sauce and bake uncovered for 25-30 min.*
