Easy Best Cabbage Rolls
How would you like to bake the Best Ever Cabbage Rolls for you and your family tonight?! Now you can make these cabbage rolls at home with this awesome recipe from Mrs Happy Homemaker, food blogger! Personally, I remember growing up absolutely loving my grandmother's cabbage rolls. I can even remember helping my grandmother out making them, rolling all of the little bundles of savory meat and veggies into the little cabbage leaves. My little hands were not that expert, and she would often reach over and help me out, but that was okay. And the best part was that I could steal little bits of the rice and other good stuff! And my grandmother would not even yell at me to stop eating the cabbage. Making cabbage rolls can be a big job, but it is definitely worth it all! Sometimes we would make big batches in order to have some to freeze and then be able to pull them out to reheat them whenever we needed them, or to bring to community events, or just over to friends who enjoyed them. My mom still even makes them sometimes every year. Whenever we eat cabbage rolls, all the history of their making comes out, too, and we have plenty of fun telling stories about making them in the past. It is a great family tradition.
Cabbage rolls are very nutritious. Cabbage is a food we often do not eat, but should. Cabbage has excellent cholesterol lowering ability because of the binding effect from the fiber that is in cabbage. Cabbage is also loaded with Vitamins K, C, and B6, among plenty of other good vitamins and minerals. And remember that cabbage serves your good health best when it is steamed (not served raw). Long boiling also lowers the good impact of cabbage. Learn to enjoy cabbage as a steamed veggie and teach your kids to love it, too. When cabbage is lightly steamed, it produces a wonderful vegetable that has a sweet flavor. Served with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper, it makes a great side dish for almost anything you might be cooking up for dinner tonight. This dish can include different kinds of meats as well as rice. Some recipes even use potatoes. Whatever blend you choose, all of them provide great nutrition in terms of protein, and complex carbohydrates (if you use brown rice, especially).
The author over at the web site, Mrs Happy Homemaker, shares with us the recipe she got from her grandmother that she used to have growing up. So that is a special treat, and an old time tested recipe! The cabbage just needs to be lightly boiled and blanched, so that the leaves are nice and soft, and easy to bite into, and then the fun folding and rolling part comes! You just mix up all of the meat with the onions and rice, and all of the savoury spices and seasonings, and roll little bits of it up into the cabbage leaves. Like little cabbage tacos. The sauce is the other best part, and she seems like she has a very good recipe. You just pour the sauce all over and bake! Cabbage rolls also seem to taste best one day later, so do not be afraid to make these one day ahead of whatever event you are planning to serve them at.
So if you need a great cabbage roll recipe that is also easy to make, than this recipe would be a good bet to try out for sure. The nice thing is, you can always make a big batch and freeze some to have in the future! And everyone absolutely loves cabbage rolls, so they will be a hit for any occasion.
