Un-Stuffed Cabbage

Hello Friends,

A few times I saw someone post a link for stuffed cabbage rolls and I used to eat them a lot while growing up from my Mom. I'm not sure if it was because I am Jewish. Is this a Jewish thing??

Then I saw Sandy - I think post Un-Stuffed cabbage. It looked like stuffed cabbage - but just in a pot.

Of course I couldn't find it or who so I got a craving today and made up my own.

This is what I put in it and it made a big pot:

a - 2 and 1/2 lb package of ground turkey
about 1/2-3/4 of a yellow onion cut up
(I would have put celery - but ran out)
1/2 pk of mushrooms sliced
1 zucchini cut up
1 small can of stewed tomatoes (its all I had in the cupboard)
so I added - 1 roma tomato cut up
 and 1/2 jar of Mont Bene pasta sauce (see fav products tab above)

1/2 cabbage cut up
and of course some Kale cut up (put this in at the end)
and a little sea salt

Usually stuffed cabbage has rice in it, so if you want you can add some brown rice (NEVER WHITE) - but I didn't feel the brown-rice love today. I wanted just meat and veggies.

This smells so good and I can't wait to eat some for dinner tonight.

Enjoy :-)


  1. Now that looks delish ! Thanks for sharing the recipe, sounds like a good fall time dish :)


  2. Is it ok if I contribute a recipe? If so, is there a certain place where I enter it on your blog? I am going to the grocery today and get some goodies to make some of your recipes, such as the spinach bread and chia seed pudding. I live in Bowling Green, KY where we do not have a selection of some of your "favs" that you have listed, but I am going to Nashville, TN tomorrow to visit my daughter & grandchildren and Nashville has lots of places!!!! Can't wait...I am going to stock up. My daughter wants to support me on my healthy eating and she is going to make a Kale, Brussel Sprout Power Salad for dinner. 0 carbs, 0 sugar!!!

    1. Hi Maggie, Just email me the details of your recipe and I will be happy to post it - BTW brussel sprouts and kale as with most veggies do have carbs and sugar. you can look up nutritional values on this website:

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
