Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

I was wanting something a bit different…and remembered seeing this post on Facebook a while ago.  I didn’t get this from Facebook, however, I found a version on Skinny Taste.  I like this version the most, and decided to give it a try.

A couple of differences:

Ground turkey instead of ground beef, and currants instead of raisins, and I didn’t add in rice (David and Carmen had rice in their dinner but not mine).  There were some other differences, but I mainly used what we had.

Ground turkey, currants, Italian seasoning, cabbage, smoked paprika, purple onion and garlic.Shred the cabbage, chop the onion, and chop the garlic.I browned the ground turkey with black pepper (1 teaspoon).  Added the onion, garlic, Italian seasoning (2 tablespoons), and smoke paprika (2 teaspoons).

Then added the currents, 1 beef bouillon dissolved in 1 cup of warm water, and 8 ounces of tomato sauce.  Stir, and simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes.Add the cabbage and another cup of hot water…let simmer for another fifteen minutes or until the cabbage is wilted.My salad plate, and no rice.  I loved it.  

David’s plate with heated rice under the cabbage mixture.  The flavors were savory, sweet, and tangy.  We will have this again.  David didn’t add ketchup so I would say it was a win/win.  Carmen did add Tabasco for a little more of a bite.
