The recipe this week is Cabbage rolls!  Can you believe that I hadn’t even heard-let alone eaten-a cabbage roll until I was drowning in them last fall because of the farm share?  I made them once and we LOVED them.  First cabbage we got last week it was the first thing I made 🙂

I follow a simple recipe on allrecipes but adapt it to our household needs.  My food processor is my best friend-throwing in bok choy-kale-onions-and all sorts of other greens (including basil and oregano) as well as radish and jerusalem artichoke.  I added this mixture to a pan with garlic and butter and sauteed them for a shot bit.  I then created a mixture of (I know-not healthy) cottage cheese (the whole container), half a container of softened cream cheese-threw an egg in and parmesan cheese-cooked rice and finally-the ground beef.  Salt and pepper to taste-and put them inside of steamed cabbage leafs and rolled them up.

I used some more butter and garlic to soften the zucchini and onion and added that to a jar of organic tomato pasta sauce we get a costco and poured it over the cabbage rolls and baked them in the oven.

Here is the recipe I really didn’t follow but doesn’t have any of the cheese that I added to our dish
