Easy Cabbage Rolls

I grew up on Cabbage Rolls. They are steamed cabbage leaves stuffed with ground meat, rice and cheese and baked in a delicious homemade tomato sauce.


1/2 onion diced, plus 1/4 cup of onion diced

2 tbsp crushed garlic, plus 1 tbsp crushed garlic

14.5oz of diced tomatoes

14.5oz tomato sauce

1 tbp sugar

1 tsp salt

10-12oz vegan meatballs or vegan ground meat

1 cup cooked rice

1 cup vegan mozzarella shreds

1 head of cabbage

Olive oil


Heat a little oil in a large pan to medium

Add in your 1/2 onion and sauté for 5 minutes

Add in 3 tbsps of garlic and cook for another 2-3 minutes

Add in your tomatoes and tomato sauce

Stir in your sugar and salt

Cook for 15 minutes stirring often

Heat a large pot of water

Once boiling add in your cabbage

Cook for 3-5 minutes

Remove from water and cool to touch

Preheat oven to 350

In a large bowl add your meatballs, rice, cheese, remaining onion and garlic

Add in roughly 1/2 cup of your prepared sauce

Mix well

Remove leaves from cabbage

Cut out any large/thick pieces of the cabbage stem on leaf

Place a spoonful of your meat and cheese mix onto the leaf

Fold in the sides and roll the cabbage tightly

Repeat with remaining cabbage and meat mix

Pour a little tomato sauce into a casserole dish to cover bottom

Place your stuffed cabbage rolls into the dish

Top with remaining sauce

Cover and cook for 1 hour-1 hr and 15 minutes

Garnish with parsley leaves

Serve and enjoy!
