Cabbage Rolls Michelle’s Way

I was craving cabbage rolls tonight – THANKS MISTY (we talked about it and I had to have it)!  Luckily they are easy to make!


1/2 cup cooked quinoa

1 head cabbage

1 lb ground turkey

2 green onions

2 cloves garlic

1 jalapeno pepper

2 tsp fresh rosemary

2 tsp fresh sage

2 tsp fresh oregano

1 tsp fresh thyme

2 tsp ground ginger (I didn’t have any fresh on hand)


First I toasted then cooked the quinoa.

Then I carefully peeled the  cabbage leaves (don’t beat yourself up when you tear almost each one unexpectedly)

I popped the leaves in the microwave for 2 minutes to make them more pliable While they were cooling…

I mixed them with the ground turkey.

Then mix in the cooked quinoa.

I cut each cabbage leaf in half (lengthwise) and I removed the thick stem part.

Put about a tbsp of turkey mixture in a cabbage leaf and rolled.

Don’t worry too much about them all not rolling up all pretty.

They will still taste good and that’s what is most important!

Steam them for about 10 minutes each (or until turkey is cooked through).

Serve warm and enjoy!  I like to eat mine with some soy sauce sometimes.
