Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls
Cabbage is a superfood with lots of nutrients! Did you know that it is known for healing stomach ulcers and preventing cancer (particularly colon cancer).
This is a simply, yet delicious recipe for unstuffed cabbage rolls. There are two versions, soupy and upsoupy. LOL basically, If you want it less "soupy" you need to add 1 c. of (uncooked) rice and it will absorb the extra water (& extend the servings., making it even more budget friendly!)
1 1/2 to 2 pounds lean ground beef or turkey
1 tablespoon oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small cabbage, chopped
2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sea salt
Heat the Olive oil in a Big Skillet (use medium heat) Saute the onions until tender, and then add the ground beef (or turkey) until the meat is browned.
Add the garlic, cook an additional minute before adding the remaining ingredients. (This is the point you would add the rice Bring them to a boil, Cover, reduce the heat and simmer about 25 minutes (or until the cabbage is quite fork tender)
