Cabbage rolls are the type of food that I love to eat, but I never get motivated to make because of the difficulty. Preparing the cabbage and then stuffing and rolling them just right where they won’t fall apart – they always fall apart when I try to do it! There is no reason you can’t have the great taste of cabbage rolls without all the hard work involved. There is a way to not only make them with ease, but also make them very healthy. I make my unstuffed cabbage rolls using all fresh ingredients, which allows me to control the sodium that many canned ingredients come loaded with. I also use both white and red cabbage , making the served dish very attractive to the eye!
