Stuffed Cabbage

I've tried this recipe before but I changed it up a little bit so that it only makes about 2 servings and I have cut out a lot of the fat.

Stuffed cabbage is also a pretty traditional meal in Croatia so I always like making food like this!

Today is my 45th day on My Fitness Pal! Below the recipe you will find the nutritional value for the recipe and per serving. It only lets you follow 6 categories so I choose calories, carbs, fat, protein, fiber, and sugar.

This ended up being about 407 calories per serving but I actually think it's a little less. I found that you don't really eat half of the sauce portion.

Next time I am going to bake this recipe instead... I found that I was too impatient to wait an hour for the rice to cook inside of the meat.

Hope you like this recipe, we liked it and decided we were adding it to our regular meals.

Serves 2


cooking spray
4 cabbage leaves

For the filling:
1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/4 c. uncooked white rice

1. Boil a large pot of water. Core cabbage, making sure to leave the leaves intact. Place the head of cabbage into a large bowl, core side up. Carefully pour the boiling water over the cabbage. Let stand 15 minutes or until the leaves are pliable.
