St Patrick’s Day Stuffed Cabbage
Here’s a fun green idea for your St. Patrick’s Day celebration!
This vegan stuffed cabbage is the perfect hearty Irish feast. It’s stuffed with tempeh, a nutritious soy product similar to tofu but higher in protein, vitamins and fibre. Or you can use your favorite canned beans instead. The end result is a deliciously protein-packed, high fiber meal. Make it to share with your friends and family during festivities.
2 small green cabbages, halved & cored
3 Tbs olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 small zucchini, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 oz crumbled tempeh or your favorite canned beans
3 Tbs finely chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp dried thyme
2 cups cooked red quinoa or brown rice
salt & freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Remove inner leaves of cabbage halves, leaving 3 outer layers to form a bowl; thinly slice inner cabbage leaves.
Heat oil in large pot over medium heat; add cabbage, onion, and zucchini and cook, stirring often, until tender.
Add tomatoes, garlic, and tempeh; cook, stirring often, until tempeh is lightly browned (Note: if using canned beans
instead of tempeh, drain and add, same as tempeh).
Stir in parsley, thyme, and quinoa or rice; season with salt and pepper.
Fill cabbage halves with vegetable mixture.
Place in large baking dish and bake at 350F degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Serve hot.
