Sweet & Sour Cabbage Rolls


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 cups of strained tomatoes or tomato sauce (in BPA free can or packaging)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 large green cabbage (3.5 to 4 pounds)
  • 1 container Better Bean, Rethought Red Beans
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked brown rice (or millet)
  • 1 cup finely chopped fresh kale or spinach
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped, yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon dry dill


  1. Warm olive oil in pot, over medium-low heat. Saute the garlic then add remaining sauce ingredients (tomatoes through salt) and simmer for 10 minutes
  2. In a large bowl, combine beans, rice (or millet), onion, spinach and dill plus ¼ cup of the prepared tomato sauce
  3. Bring a large pot of water a boil. Separate 15 to 20 large cabbage leaves from the head, and place in boiling water. Boil until soft, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from water, and set aside to cool for approximately 5 minutes.
  4. Into the center of each leaf, place about 1/3 to ½ cup of the bean mixture. Fold in the sides, and roll up from the bottom.
  5. Place the cabbage rolls side by side in rows, seam-side down, in a 9X13 casserole pan.  Spread sauce evenly over the top. Bake at 350º for 50-60 minutes. Serve hot and garnish with additional dill if desired.
