Cabbage Recipes

So, I am posting exactly how I made these items. They are cooking right now so I will have to let you know later how they tasted.

Polish Cabbage Rolls
1/4 Large Green Cabbage
1/2 lb. Ground Beef, browned
1 C Cooked rice
1 egg beaten
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 carrot, minced
1 can tomato soup
1 tsp. worchestershire sauce
Pinch of Thyme
1/2 tsp. basil
salt & pepper

-- Boil water in a large pot, meanwhile cut around core of cabbage. Insert cabbage in boiling water. The leaves will loosen and you can remove. Remove 8 leaves and put rest of cabbage aside.
-- Mix together beef, onion, rice, 1/4 can tomato soup, carrot, egg, worchestershire sauce, and spices.
-- Fill each cabbage leaf with a large spoonful of meat mixture. Fill all 8 leaves. Roll each individually and insert them in a covered casserole dish (13x9 pan).
-- Mix remainder of soup with 1/2 can of water and pour over the cabbage rolls. Bake for 1.5 hours at 350 degrees.
-- Makes 4 servings (2 rolls per serving).

Weight Watchers Points (for those counting): 5.5 per serving

Cabbage Soup
2 C Bloody Mary Mix
2 C Water
3 C Cabbage
2 Ribs Celery
1 Can Mushrooms
1/2 Carrots, minced
1/2 Onion, minced
1 sq. Beef Bouillon
1 sq. Chicken Bouillon
1 Bay Leaf

-- Combine all ingredients and cook until cabbage is tender.

Apparently this recipes, as it is all vegetables is 0 points for Weight Watchers, so eat up and enjoy.

I use Bloody Mary mix, as I love the drink and always have mix around. If you just use tomato juice, you should increase the juice to 3 C and decrease the water to 1 C, plus you'll need to add spices as well.


  • The Cabbage rolls were excellent. 2 of them were pretty filling. Ate 2 of them with a small bowl of the soup. The soup was good, but not great. Also made Peach Cobbler. See the other posts on here.
