Alternative lighter, summery stuffed cabbage ideas?

rworange | Jul 29, 2009 11:51 AM

A local farm is growing the best cabbage I have ever seen in my life. The tender leaves which were whole and large even to the core were just begging to be stuffed.

This cabbage was pegged for braising with bacon, apples and oca potatoes, but I seem myself buying more cabbage on the next visit.

While I love the traditional versions with beef or rice, I've been upping my veggie intake recently and finding I can eat so much more and lose weight without any effort. So I'm looking for some alternatives.

All I think was maybe something with apples or tomatoes but I'm at a loss. Googling brought up some different ideas. Anyone have any other creative thoughts?

This still has some rice in it, but I like the idea of using herbs such as mint and fresh tomatoes

Don't know about the rice or feta, but I think I could use this for inspiration for a bean-based stuffed roll.


Again with the feta, but another idea
