Or alternatively use approximately 500 gms/16 ozs of homemade or store bought Sugar Free Marinara Sauce
To Make The Cabbage Rolls
Tear off the larger outer leaves of the cabbage and boil or steam for about 10 minutes until soft enough to roll. Drain and allow to cool so you can handle them. Spread out on a bench top ready to be filled.
Mix the minced/ground meat with the remaining ingredients and divide into 12 portions.
Shape the meat into rolls and place a roll in the center of each cabbage leaf.
Fold the bottom half of the cabbage leaf over the meat, and fold the edges in from the sides to cover the ends of the meat roll. Finally, fold the roll over onto the top part of the cabbage leaf and ensure that the seam of the cabbage roll is on the bottom.
To Assemble The Dish
Mix all ingredients together to create your quick Marinara sauce, or use your premade Marinara Sauce.
Spoon a small amount of the Marinara sauce to slightly cover the bottom of a baking dish measuring 20cm x 28 cm/8” x 11”.
Lay the cabbage rolls evenly in the tray and spoon over the remaining sauce.
Bake in the oven for approximately 1 hour at 180 C/ 350 F or until cooked through.
