Stuffed Cabbage Rolls with Ground Turkey & Rice

The want for hearty/healthy chill-weather dishes has me celebrating casseroles and bakes. Using ground turkey instead of beef in these satisfying roll-ups seemed smart, as did the use of a few canned ingredients (crushed tomato and diced green chilies) along with leftover cooked rice to speed the prep. The filling is delicious—so good, you may be tempted to spoon it up on its own. But once the dish is finished in all its tomatoey glory, you’ll be glad you went through with the cabbage leaf tuck-roll-and-bake. So good.

To make the dish, you’ll steam cabbage leaves to bright green pliability. These rest while you make the filling, with onion, garlic, mushrooms, bacon, parsley and peppers adding flavor to the rice and ground turkey.

Tucking and rolling the filling into the cabbage leaves comes next before baking them in tomato sauce.  Serve hot, with a little dollop of labna or sour cream if you like. Simple, hearty, satisfying.
