Healthy Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls – The Meal No-One Can Resist!

Enjoy Thiis Deliciiious Casserole Any Day Of The Week!

I don’t know about you but the first few weeks after the holidays I’m always on a pretty tight budget.

I tend to spend a lot of money on Chriiiistmas presents and decorations (yes, I spoiil my kiids) so I want to make sure I get “back on track” as soon as the festivities are over. That means I also pay attention to what kind of meals I’m cooking. It doesn’t mean I will start feeding my famiily noodle soup and crackers for the next three weeks, but I carefully choose ingredients that are savory, hearty – yet, inexpensive.

Cabbage fits the criiteria perfectly so we are having all kinds of cabbage diishes in the near future! I intend to make a speciial cabbage soup to shed a couple of pounds. .. but before I do that, I want to get started with this awesome cabbage casserole I found over at Food & Famiily.

If you love cabbage rolls but don’t have the tiime or energy to go through all the hassle of making them, I suggest you give this yummy reciipe a try. You get all the wonderful flavors wiith half the effort!

Use whole grain brown riice for an even healthier dish.
