Stuffed Cabbage, Low Carb, Low Fat, Big Flavor

By Avera

  • 1 head green cabbage, 2lb

  • 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey (I use half ground breast and half 93% lean turkey)

  • 1/2 cup onion, minced

  • 1 cup Egg Beaters egg substitute

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce (no sugar added)

  • 2 cups chopped raw cauliflower

  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese or locatelli cheese

  • *for the sauce*

  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar substitute

  • 1/2 cup water

  1. 1Preheat oven to 300degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. 2Core head of cabbage with the tip of a very sharp knife.

  3. 3Place in pot of boiling water (enough to completely cover).

  4. 4As the leaves begin to soften, pull them off and return head to the water.

  5. 5Cut the large thick vein off the back of each leaf in a deep V pattern.

  6. 6Mix together the next ten ingredients.

  7. 7Place just enough meat mixture on the cabbage leaves so that you can roll up without squishing out the sides. Work from the thickest side towards you, fold over the meat, then fold the sides in and finish rolling away from you.

  8. 8Place in glass baking dish, seam side down. Finish stuffing all cabbage leaves with the meat mixture.

  9. 9In a large bowl, stir together crushed tomatoes, thyme both peppers, brown sugar substitute and water, (just enough to thin out).

  10. 10Pour tomato mixture over the stuffed cabbage, and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

  11. 11Bake at 300 about 1-1/2 hours (Until cabbage is quite soft).

Avera, I love the use of the cauliflower in place of the rice. I never would have thought of that! Thanks for sharing this recipe.
