Filling, economical, and delicious! You won't even miss the meat. Enjoyed and entered in Dining on a Dollar contest.
- 354.88 ml chopped fresh mushrooms (a mix of button and cremini is good)
- 236.59 ml diced zucchini
- 177.44 ml chopped green bell pepper
- 177.44 ml chopped red sweet bell pepper
- 177.44 ml vegetable broth
- 118.29 ml bulgur
- 4.92 ml dried basil
- 2.46 ml dried marjoram
- 2.46 ml dried thyme
- 1.23 ml celery seed
- 1.23 ml black pepper
- 1 large head of cabbage
- 88.74 ml shredded muenster cheese, divided (you could leave out to make vegan or use Parmesan cheese)
- 9.85 ml lemon juice
- 0.25 ml salt
- 0.25 ml black pepper
- 226.79 g can tomato sauce
- 29.58-36.97 ml ketchup
- 4.92 ml lemon juice
- 14.79 ml maple syrup
- 0.59-1.23 ml hot pepper sauce, to taste
- 4.92 ml Worcestershire sauce (optional)
- In a large saucepan, combine the first 11 ingredients(mushrooms through black pepper). Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat; let stand for about 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cut 10 large whole leaves off cabbage head and cook leaves in boiling water just until softened and pliable(about 5 minutes). Set aside eight large leaves for rolls (the two extra are just in case a leaf tears). Cut out the thick vein from each leaf, making a V-shape cut. Overlap the cut ends before filling.
- Stir 4 tablespoons Muenster cheese and lemon juice into the vegetable mixture. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Now place 1/3 cupful on each cabbage leaf; fold in sides. Starting at an unfolded edge, roll to completely enclose the filling.
- Combine tomato sauce, ketchup, lemon juice, maple syrup and hot pepper sauce(and Worchestershire sauce if using); pour 1/3 cup into a 2 quart baking dish. Place cabbage rolls, seam side down, in the baking dish; spoon remaining sauce over the top.
- Cover and bake at 400° for 15 minutes or until heated through.
- Sprinkle with the remaining Muenster cheese.
- Note: (Honey or brown sugar are options for the maple syrup after the contest.).
