stuffed cabbages:

  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1  half of a cauliflower, riced, or 2 cups of pre-riced cauliflower
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • cooking spray


  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Swerve Granular


Step 1.  Core the cabbage and pull off the first layer of outer leaves.

Step 2.  In a large soup pot, cook the whole head of cabbage in enough boiling water to cover for about 3 minutes or just until outer leaves are softened. Remove cabbage from water; remove as many leaves as can easily be removed. Return cabbage to water; repeat the process until 12 leaves are removed.

Step 3.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a large 9 x 13c inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

Step 4.  Use pre-riced cauliflower, or process cauliflower in a food processor until it is finely chopped to about the size of grains of rice.  Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over Medium-High heat.  Cook cauliflower rice until softened, 5-6 minutes.  If it is frozen, then cook it for 7-8 minutes.

Step 5.  Mix the parsley, ground beef, garlic, salt, and cooked cauliflower in a medium-sized bowl. Beat the egg and mix in well.

Step 6.  Mix up the tomato sauce, water, sour cream, and sweetener in a small bowl. Pour half of the tomato mixture into the casserole dish.

Step 7.  Lay a cabbage leaf flat on the counter. Slash the bottom vein if it doesn't seem pliable. Add 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture to the cabbage and roll up like a burrito. Add the cabbage roll to the casserole dish.

Step 8.  Repeat until you've run out of filling. Cover the rolls in the remaining sauce.

Step 9.  Bake for 1 hour, turning the cabbage rolls halfway through.



To make a vegetarian version of this recipe: substitute 1 (8 oz) carton of sliced mushrooms for the ground beef.  Saute the mushrooms for 8 minutes before you cook the cauliflower.  Set the cooked mushrooms aside and proceed with the recipe.
