    1 cup cooked brown rice
    1 medium to large Savoy cabbage, (about 3 pounds)
    1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    1 medium onion, chopped
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    6 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
    1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
    1 tablespoons dried dill
    1 teaspoon caraway seeds
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1 1/2 cups no-salt-added tomato sauce
    1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 tablespoon honey


In a large Dutch oven, boil the 12 largest outer cabbage leaves for 6 minutes. Drain and rinse under cool water until room temperature. Chop enough of the remaining cabbage to equal 2 cups. (Save the rest for another use.)
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and the chopped cabbage. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add 4 tablespoons lemon juice; cook, stirring, until the liquid has almost evaporated. Let cool for 10 minutes.
Mix turkey, dill, caraway, salt, pepper, the onion mixture and cooled rice in a large bowl.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch pan with cooking spray.
Lay one cabbage leaf on your work surface; cut out the thick stem. Place about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture in the leaf’s center. Fold the sides over the filling, then roll closed. Place seam-side down in the baking dish. Repeat with the remaining cabbage leaves and filling. Whisk tomato sauce, broth, honey and the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a medium bowl. Pour evenly over the rolls. Cover the pan tightly with foil.
Bake the cabbage rolls for 1 hour. Uncover and continue baking, basting the rolls with sauce several times, for 20 minutes more.
