Unrolled Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage is a great source of fiber, vitamin C and some B vitamins. And though cabbage rolls are delish, you can get the same great cabbage roll flavour with half the work!

Ingredients
1 medium head of green cabbage
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 can no salt added plum tomatoes
1/2 package of smoked bacon
1/2 onion diced
Olive Oil
1 cup swiss cheese

I start by filling a large pot with water, shredding the cabbage and boiling it for 5 minutes until it is tender. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan heat a splash of olive oil over medium heat. Add onions and bacon and cook until bacon has rendered out some of the fat and begins to crisp up.

Add can tomatoes including liquid. Mash with potato masher or fork. Cook until liquid has reduced by half then add the brown rice and cook 5 minutes more.

When cabbage has finished cooking drain and transfer to a casserole dish. Make sure there is enough to cover the bottom. Top with tomato, rice and bacon mixture. Cover with tin foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove tin foil, grate swiss cheese lightly over the top and allow to melt. Serve warm.
