Cabbage RollsSubmitted by: MELLYN2000
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 c chopped onion
1 c cooked brown rice
1 can cooked, diced tomatoes, blended
1 small can tomato paste
1 c tomato sauce
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp honey
salt and pepper to taste
14 med-large cabbage leaves, cooked in boiled water until semi soft
For the rest of the recipe, I brown the ground turkey and onion, salt and pepper together. Once browned, I add rice and 1/2 small can of tomato paste, mixing well and set aside. While meat is browning, I blend one can of cooked diced tomatos together, add the tomato sauce, and rest of tomato paste, and brown sugar and honey. I then put tomato sauce mix into another pan and heat, disolving the sugar and honey, and letting it thicken a bit.
Then take your cabbage leaves, adding appx 2 tbsp of meat mixture and then rolling them up like a burrito. Repeat until all meat mixutre is gone. Line a baking dish with rolls and pour tomato sauce mix over top, cooking in 350 degree oven until hot and bubbly. I sometimes also place cabbage rolls into a large stove top safe cooking and pour sauce over them and heat until hot and bubbly. Makes appx 12-14 cabbage rolls.
