LENTIL STUFFED CABBAGE ROLLS

As the war in Ukraine weighs heavily on each and every one of us, I wanted to share a traditional dish. This is a vegan dish (and could be a Passover-safe dish, if you eat rice or skip the rice). #prayforukraine 🇺🇦

Total Time 50 minutes
Course Main Course

Ingredients
  

  • 6 cups water
  • 8 cabbage leaves
  • 1 24-oz. jar tomato sauce low sodium
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion peeled and chopped
  • 1 12-oz. can or box Trader Joe’s has an excellent pre-cooked box lentils, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup brown rice cooked
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the cabbage leaves and cook for about 2 minutes each, or until soft. Remove the leaves from the pot, set aside, and discard the water.

  • Spread out the cabbage leaves on a clean surface and place a large spoonful of the lentil mixture in the center of each cabbage leaf, on top of the stem. Roll the cabbage leaf up over the filling, burrito-style.
  • Place all the rolls seam-side down in the pot with the tomato sauce and simmer on low heat for another 10 minutes.
  • Makes 2 main-dish servings or 4 side dish servings.
