Ours had ground turkey, rice, tomatoes, onion, garlic, cabbage, spices and coconut oil over fresh steak tomatoes. We skipped the extra tomato sauce simply because we didn’t have any. Sub in cauli rice to make it 21DSD compliant! Not beautiful but scrumptious!!
2# ground meat of choice (or even chicken breasts flaked)
1 small cabbage, chopped
2 cups prepared rice (or cauli rice)
1 large onion, diced
1 large beef steak tomato, sliced in thick slices
4-6 medium cloves garlic, smashed and minced
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
Salt & pepper to taste
(I also added Greek seasoning)
(Option to add more tomato sauce on top!) Directions:
🔹in a large saucepan or pot, melt coconut oil. Sauté onions and garlic. Once translucent, add ground meat and cook thoroughly. Drain grease.
🔹add 2 cans diced tomatoes plus juice.
🔹add rice, cabbage, salt, pepper, and any other spices you prefer. Cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stir and check moisture periodically)
🔹place 2 slices tomato on plate, sprinkle salt and pepper and drizzle balsamic vinegar. Serve your Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls straight on top of your fresh tomatoes. Option: add more tomato sauce on top!
