This is a delicious recipe for traditional cabbage rolls. In summer when tomatoes are plentiful, I use peeled fresh tomatoes instead of canned diced tomatoes to reduce the sodium. —Dolly Mullen of Langley, Washington

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head cabbage
  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup Minute® Brown Rice
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Nutritional Facts

2 cabbage rolls equals 281 calories, 9 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 50 mg cholesterol, 897 mg sodium, 24 g carbohydrate, 4 g fiber, 24 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 3 vegetable, 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. Cook cabbage in boiling water just until leaves fall off head. Set aside 8 large leaves for rolls. (Refrigerate remaining cabbage for another use.) Cut out the thick vein from the bottom of each reserved leaf, making a V-shaped cut. Set aside.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the ground beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomatoes and water; bring to a boil. Stir in rice; return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Place about 1/3 cup beef mixture on each reserved cabbage leaf; overlap cut ends of leaf. Fold in sides, beginning from the cut end. Roll up completely to enclose filling.
  4. In a bowl, combine the tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, basil, thyme and sugar. Spread half on the bottom of an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Top with cabbage rolls and remaining tomato sauce mixture.
  5. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Yield: 4 servings.

My husband & I both enjoyed this recipe. It wasn't too labor intensive and the flavor was really good. Just as a tip - I found that it took about 15 minutes of boiling the cabbage for it to fall off the head.
