Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Many do not think about cabbage rolls as a tasty addition or main part of a meal but it is a delicious main course. This recipe is very simple and allows for adaptation depending on one's diet restrictions. For those doing the South Beach diet, this is a permissible recipe beginning even from phase 1.

12 cabbage leaves
1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 cup of green onion
1/4 of green pepper
1 can of tomato sauce (no salt added)
Garlic salt and pepper (to taste)

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place cabbage leaves in a pot filled with boiled water. Set the pot aside - do not continue to boil the water. Let is sit for 10 minutes.
  3. While the cabbage "cooks," fry the ground turkey, onion and green pepper with the seasoning of choice (garlic salt and pepper are listed).
  4. Pour 1/2 a can tomato sauce in the meat mixture, mix together and set aside.
  5. Pour the water out of the cabbage pot and let the cabbage cool.
  6. Place 1/4 cup of the meat mixture onto a leaf of cabbage. Tuck the leaf sides under so the the seams are on the greased cookie sheet. Repeat this step until all the meat mixture and cabbage leaves are used.
  7. Use the other half of the tomato sauce to pour spoonfuls on top of the cabbage leaves. Sprinkle the sauce with some salt.
  8. Cook for 20 minutes.
Note: The meat can be combined with cooked brown rice or other types of veggies. The choice is yours.
