Cabbage Rolls


  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium carrot, diced
  • 1 large stalk celery, diced
  • 12-14 cabbage leaves
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg's Aminos
  • 1/4 cup filberts or almonds, toasted and chopped
  • 1 cup soy cheese, shredded (optional)
  • 1/3 soy parmesan cheese (optional)
  • 1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced (optional)
  • 1 can marinara sauce


  1. Sauté onion and garlic in oil for 2-3 minutes. (Optional: add shredded soy cheese. Then add 1 pound fresh sliced muchrooms. Sauté with onion and garlic.) Add carrot and celery. Sauté briefly, then add water. Bring to boil and cover. Cook over low heat for 3 minutes, then stir in rice, Bragg's and nuts.

  2. Wash cabbage leaves carefully, and steam in a large pot for about 5 minutes.

  3. Preheat oven to 350°, place 1/3 cup of filling on each leaf. Roll the leaf around it lengthwise into a fat little pocket, tucking in the sides as you roll. Place the rolls in a baking dish, pour marinara sauce over, and bake covered for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for another 10-15 minutes.
