Easy Cabbage Roll Recipe

Updated on March 9, 2008

This is my grandma’s recipe, so don’t tell her I’m passing it along! Cabbage rolls are tasty, but take a lot of time to prepare. My grandmother was a wife and mother who also worked at a full-time job outside of the home. She often made this easy version of cabbage rolls, which is actually a casserole.

Even if you don’t have a lot of time to cook dinners, you can easily whip up simple, tasty meals so your family can eat together. Serve this with cornbread, tomato wedges, and sliced onion. The meal wouldn’t be complete without some iced tea, so mix a bit of that up too. This dish is also good when you combine it with potatoes (boiled, mashed, or roasted). You have a lot of freedom with what to serve with this meal.

Another great thing about this meal isn’t that it doesn’t cost a lot. Cabbage is very nutritious, but also inexpensive. Just one cup of cabbage contains 90% of your daily value of Vitamin K, 50% of Vitamin C, and over 3 grams of fiber. Cabbage is also incredibly low in calories.

I omit the meat when I cook it for myself, so you can too if you desire. I either substitute the meat with a meat alternative, or crumbled tofu.
