Low-carb Cabbage and Mince Rolls

Keto Cabbage Mince Rolls
Keto Cabbage Mince Rolls

Get a little creative with ground beef and savoy cabbage and spend some time making these attractive little parcels. I used the full yield of the Roasted Tomato Sauce recipe for this dish, so be sure to have that prepped and ready before beginning. (You could, alternatively use 500g / 18oz of passata, but I want to encourage you to make your own sauces so you know exactly what has gone into them.) One serving = 2 parcels (as pictured) so this recipe will happily feed a family of 4.

Instructions
  1. Assuming you have the FOL Roasted Tomato Sauce cooked and ready to use, prep all your remaining ingredients. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 355°F.

  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Working in two or three batches, plunge the cabbage leaves into the boiling water and cook until they have wilted sufficiently. (They need to be very pliable as you will be folding them later.)

  3. Place the leaves on a tray lined with kitchen paper and allow to cool.

  4. Toast the pine nuts in a dry, hot pan until golden.
  5. Keep a small handful of toasted nuts aside (we will use this as a garnish) and roughly chop the remainder. Set aside.

  6. Heat the olive oil (or melt the lard) in a large pan or wok, and gently fry the celery until completely softened. Use a wooden spoon to lightly smash them.

  7. Add the mushrooms and garlic and increase the heat. Stirring continuously, cook until the mushrooms have caramelised.

  8. Tip in the ground beef and mix in well. Cook until no longer pink.

  9. At this time, mix in 1/4 cup of the M&L Roasted Tomato Sauce and add the dried oregano. Stir in the chopped pine nuts and mix well to combine. Season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  10. Spoon a little Roasted Tomato Sauce on the bottom of a greased, suitable-sized roasting dish (like a lasagne casserole). Take one cooked cabbage leaf at a time and trim off the hard centre bit, as pictured (this makes it easier to fold.) Divide the mince mixture between the 8 leaves.

  11. Fold into little parcels, tucking in the mince mixture.

  14. Drizzle over a little olive oil and place into the oven for 30 minutes.
  15. After baking, season with Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper. Scatter over the reserved pine nuts, chopped parsley (or torn basil) just before serving.

Recipe Notes

Since olive oil is somewhat unstable when heated, I do advise you select lard to fry food. It's inexpensive and can be found in the same aisle as butter.

Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
