cabbage rolls

For us, using up the cabbage in our CSA box is always a challenge. Cabbage rolls are a surprisingly easy and delicious way to use up a bunch of cabbage. Here’s a general recipe for Jeff’s cabbage rolls…

Boil some water and add cabbage leaves to the boiling water. Boil the cabbage leaves until they become soft (around five minutes or so). At the same time, in another pot, heat up some rice and lentils and season them with pepper, sage, and garlic salt. At the same time, in yet another pot, prepare some red sauce (for ours, Jeff added TVP and the same seasoning as in the rice and lentil mixture to diced tomatoes, but you could use a jar of store-bought tomato sauce instead). Wrap a dollop of the lentil and rice mixture up in each cabbage leaf.

Place the cabbage rolls in a casserole dish…

…and cover them with the red sauce.

Bake at 350°F for 5-10 minutes (for us, everything was already hot when we put it in the oven, so it didn’t need long). Enjoy!
