Baked Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

As many of you know by now, my criteria for choosing recipes is: Quick, Easy, Healthy (or somewhat healthy), and Delicious! This recipe fits 3 of them.

Quick is not one of them.

This does take time since you have to make the rice, boil cabbage leaves and prepare each cabbage roll individually.

But, it’s definitely worth the trouble, I must admit!!!

Super tasty and you can enjoy these for a couple of days! Hope you will make them!
