My husband grew up eating traditional cabbage rolls in Louisiana. It’s one of his favorite things & a new years tradition for him. I grew up eating stuffed peppers and had never heard of cabbage rolls until we married.
Fast forward 10 years & we combine his cabbage rolls with my stuffed peppers for a super healthy version all our own.
If you’ve followed my journey online, you know all about my sneaky veggie meatballs. I basically use this same method with a few added ingredients to make these deliciously healthy cabbage rolls.
The very first thing you will do is remove the large outer leaves from a head of cabbage. You can use green or red/purple cabbage. In this case I'm using a combination of both.
If you have trouble removing the leaves, try doing it under running water letting the water flow between the leaves.
Put your cabbage leaves aside & work on the filling.
