French Cuisine Provençale Stuffed Cabbage

Ingredients:

8 large green cabbage leaves

5/8 cup smoked grated provolone cheese

1/2 cup water, broth or dry white wine

1 large peeled and chopped tomato

1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds

Salt and pepper to taste

2 cups Provençale Stuffing (recipe below)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Prepare the Stuffing.

3. Steam cabbage leaves for about 4 minutes. Tip for removing the leaves without cracking them is to removed the core from the cabbage head and place the entire head in the steamer for a few minutes. This will help the leaves come off more easily.

4. Put about 3 to 3 1/2 tablespoons of stuffing at the base of each leaf and roll up the leaf.

5. Pour the water, wine or broth into a buttered baking dish, sprinkle tomato and caraway seeds into it.

6. Place the rolled cabbage leaves into the liquid so they can't roll open.

7. Sprinkle the cabbage rolls with a little salt and black pepper to suite taste.

8. Cover and bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

9. Sprinkle with provolone cheese and bake another 5 minutes. Serve warm.

Makes 4 Servings.

Hey Sandy, nice hub and recipe. Can you believe that I've never had stuffed cabbage? I like cabbage though. I grew up eating good ol' down home cooking. My mother cooked cabbage and corn bread.

Sandy, thanks for the information. I love stuffed cabbage rolls, but I never knew they were originally from France. I make them as my Russian cuisine heritage :) We stuff cabbage rolls with ground meat mixed with cooked rice. And we boil them to cook.

I enjoyed your hub.

Thanks everyone for your comments. I have also cooked them with beef and rice too. But this is a good recipe for those who are avoiding meat.

What real housewife can't use a recipe like this one? It sounds great - I have made a variation with hamburger but my kids would probably like the parmesan better. Ditto my thanks for the recipe!
