How To Make Stuffed Cabbage Rolls – Cooking Technique

I have two recipes you can use for these instructions.

Quinoa Stuffed Cabbage

Stuffed Cabbage with Meat and Rice

Place the whole cabbage in the boiling water for 10-15 depending on the size, until softened. Remove from the water,drain, and cool.

In a skillet add the olive oil and saute  the onions, carrots until softened.

Add the quinoa and remaining ingredients and cook on medium low until all the liquid is evaporated about 10 minutes.

Unwrap the cabbage leaves and place 1 tablespoon of filling in center and roll.
Tightly pack the rolls in the pot. Add a plate to weigh down the rolls. Add the cabbage water and bring to a boil.
Reduce to low and simmer for 45 minutes.

When done let cool. Carefully lift one out one roll at a time. The technique for rolling the cabbage leaf is the same for all stuffed dishes made with a leaf. It can be called the cigar roll.  For more  information regarding the rolling technique look at my Stuffed Grape Leaves Post.
