Stuffed Cabbage Leaves

This is a delicious recipe for little packages of minced meat, rice, onion and herbs wrapped in cabbage leaves.


1 medium cabbage
2 onions, diced
2 cups of tomato puree
1 cup of rice
500g minced beef
dill, finely chopped
parsley, finely chopped
sea salt and cracked pepper
1/2 cup of olive oil


Wash the cabbage and carefully separate each leaf. In a large saucepan boil water and add the cabbage for a few minutes until tender but not soggy. Drain and carefully remove the hard stem from each leaf. Place all the other ingredients in a bowl except the tomato and olive oil and mix them together. Place a tablespoon of mixture in each leaf and wrap tightly to make a little parcel. Place a few of the outer leaves of the cabbage in a large saucepan and place the stuffed ones on top. Pour over warm water, tomato puree and olive oil and cover with a lid. Simmer at a low heat for 1 - 1 1/2 hours until the rice is cooked.
