I was going through my Omnitrition Drops cookbook today, and it mentioned sausage…it sounded good. I got some cabbage the other day and have been meaning to make cabbage rolls, so this sounded perfect.
First problem, no ground chicken: Solved, I made my own. I had three thawed chicken breasts (about 24 oz) and I put them into a food processor with hot smoked paprika, rosemary, parsley, and oregano and pulsed until it was ground. When that was done, I took it out and pulsed the onion and garlic. then I mixed them together.
Next I sliced up 16 oz of cabbage, tomato, celery, and onion.
I cooked 16 oz of the sausage up with the veggies until the chicken and veggies were all cooked and added one tablespoon of tomato paste.
I took the outer leaves off of the head of cabbage, and one by one boiled them. Each was in there for no more than two minutes. When the leaves got pliable they were removed and placed on paper towels to dry.
Next I weighed the sausage and veggie mix. I divided that by 4, and then weighed out 4 servings. I took one serving and wrapped it up in one leaf. This made four full cabbage rolls.
Somehow, the sausage turned out a bit sweet, but a drizzle of Franks Original Red Hot was the perfect compliment!
