This is traditional cabbage roll recipe, however obviously veganized! They’re simple to make, relatively affordable, and certainly can leave you with a few leftovers excellent for lunches.
Getting those Cabbage Leaves
There are a few different means to have soften the leaves and also make them break loose. Though, I find boiling the cabbage works best.
Begin with cutting 1/4″ away from the base of the cabbage. After that, set the entire head of cabbage to boiling water for approximately 3 minutes. Then peel off the softened leaves the cabbage off. Repeat this till all of the larger leaves easily come off.
Initially you’ll likely just have be able to have about 1 or two leaves off, but since you repeat this and also the cabbage gets smaller, this process will speed-up.
Why I’m so Love this Cabbage Rolls? Because…
- low calories
- rich vitamin, mineral and antioxidants
- has gut-friendly insoluble fiber
- helps reduce inflammation
There are in fact countless varieties of cabbage grown in various areas of earth. Though, up before I utilized savoy cabbage in this recipe, I believed there were just two, green and red.
As you can see, I wasn’t the greatest fan of cabbage. Now, knowing all of the nutrients these little suckers are packaging, it is difficult not to adore them.
