What can I substitute for bulgur? Quinoa?
Read the back of the cheese make sure there is not animal rennet in it.. not vegatarian if so.
At first, I too was a bit skeptical of the amount of liquid, but the mushrooms and other veg were enough to cook down. I thought it was quite yummy, and could have just put sauce on it and eaten it with out rolling it in the cabbage!
I?m not sure what was going on with the previous cook based on her comments. Bulgur is a grain with a 2:1 liquid to grain ratio. For the ½ c of bulgur in this recipe there is ¾ c veg stock and the other liquid comes out of the vegetables. It turns out to be the perfect amount of liquid. Perhaps she/he cooked the bulgur and veggies with the lid off or did not add enough stock? Either way, I might question my cooking methods before I call everyone a liar and trashed the recipe. I found there to be plenty of liquid. Just make sure to keep the lid closed and then let it sit to absorb the remainder of the liquid.Overall I thought this recipe was just ok. The tomato sauce and dish overall was bland, and next time I think I will skip the peppers. This was definitely missing some oomph, but I will keep experimenting until I get it right. I?m thinking more mushrooms (criminis for ?meatiness?), chopped onions and maybe even some grated carrot. I would also add about 1 tbs of brown sugar, 1 tsp of Worcestershire and a squeeze of lemon to give the tomato sauce some zing.
What a ridiculous recipe. First off, there is no way you can prep that many vegetables in 30 minutes. Second, dried herbs?? Thirdly there is nowhere near enough liquid in 3/4 a cup of broth to match all the vegetables and bulgur. And then lastly they dont even cook properly in 15 minutes.I don't believe these other ratings. I threw the entire dish of rolls in the bin after cooking it was so unpleasant.
I loved this! I am not a vegetarian but this was wonderful. I had never cooked with bulgar before. I plan to look for more recipies using bulgar and other grains.
I made this recipe with two bulgar wheat rolls and basmati rice rolls; the bulgar wheat cabbage rolls tasted the best! I can't wait to make this again.
My husband and I loved this dish! We are not vegetarians but loved the flavor. My husband thought it had ground beef in it until about halfway through his meal!
This is a very tasty main course. I am a vegetarian (recently converted) and wanted stuffed cabbage, without the meat. When it did not include rice I was a little skeptical but the bulgur does a fantastic job of substitution without the time it takes for whole grain rice to cook. The next time I make this recipe I will increase the bulgur by half hoping to give it more o a traditional stuffed cabbage texture. This is an excellent recipe and would recommend it to anyone looking to reduce the fat in his or her diet or is vegetarian.
I love the flavor of the tomato sauce and hot pepper sauce!
