About Crispy Stuffed Cabbage Rolls Recipe

While I was in Toronto a few years ago, I went to a farm-to-table restaurant and had the most delicious Thanksgiving meal. Our Thanksgiving Dinner included delicious kale, onion, tofu, chicken, herbs, and cheese pierogis, in addition to turkey and stuffing.

These packages were nestled in a shallow broth along with wild mushrooms, carrots, parsnips, and herbs. Brussels sprouts were grilled and served with mashed potatoes, gravy, and homemade sourdough bread.

The first recipe I came across that made the holiday table festive and memorable was Crispy Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Even though they take a little bit of time and effort and involve a few ingredients, these veggie cabbage rolls are well worth the effort to make the holiday season special.

What is your favorite pierogi?

For me, Not until Thanksgiving that year. Essentially, they’re semicircular dumplings filled with sweet or savory stuffing, boiled, then pan-fried to impart a bit of a golden color and texture. It’s a traditional recipe for holiday celebrations.

A couple of days ago I bought a large head of cabbage from the vegetable vendor and decided to make those cabbage rolls with stuffed vegetables. It makes me happy to imagine little packages of deliciousness that, when opened, reveal the most flavorful fillings.

This vegetarian holiday main makes such a delightful dish for all special occasions and holidays.

Ingredients 

  • 6 – Cabbage leaves
  • 1 1/2 cup – Besan/ chickpea flour batter
  • 1 cup – Onion chopped
  • 1 cup – Coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tbsp – Green chilly chopped
  • 1 cup – Potato mashed
  • 1 tsp – Red chilly powder
  • 1 tbsp – Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 cup – Paneer grated
  • 1 tsp – Garam masala powder
  • Salt
  • Oil

Cabbage – This vegetable is available all year round, so you can easily pick this up at a nearby vegetable stand.

Besan or Chickpea Flour – This recipe is made from Besan flour. This dish is gluten-free due to the chickpea flour. It can also be made crispier by adding 1 tablespoon of rice flour.

Vegetables – I have used onions, green chili, and coriander leaves. You can also add some other grated vegetables you like for the stuffing.

Potato –  Yukon gold, red, and white potatoes can be used as per your choice. Anything, they will be just as tasty! It’s best to buy organic potatoes because regular potatoes often contain a high level of pesticide residue. However, you can use any large-sized potato that you can find easily.

Paneer or Tofu – If the tofu is soft or silken, it will crumble easily when pressed, so extra-firm tofu will be necessary for this recipe. But if using paneer then for this recipe, homemade paneer works best because it can be crumbled easily. Store-bought paneer should be soaked in warm water for five to ten minutes to make it soft and crumbly. 

Seasoning – Very few ingredients like red chili powder, garam masala powder, and salt to taste have been used here.

Oil – Use any vegetable oil for this recipe.

    Notes

    • It is best to buy a large head of cabbage so there are plenty of large leaves to work with as well as extra leaves in case something happens.
    • You can use whatever combination of mashed potatoes, tofu, or panner your family prefers. Often I make it with 100% paneer and peas because my family loves paneer and peas.
    • Boiling the cabbage is an important step. Rolling these guys is much easier once it has boiled. Unboiled cabbage leaves are almost impossible to roll because they are stiff as aboard.
    • Chop the roots of the cabbage about a 1/2 to 3/4 inch above the surface after boiling. It will be easier to peel the leaves this way.
