Mmmmm Cabbage Rolls!

Melissa’s Healthy Cabbage Rolls

1 can whole pealed tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
1 good-sized head of cabbage or 2 small heads (I used a small green and a small purple)
     *reserve the best 12 leaves from the outside of the cabbage trying not to tear or damage them they will be wrapped around the rolls
1lbs ground turkey
1 egg (beaten)
1 small white onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 ½ tsp ground white pepper
1-2 Tbsp ground chilli powder
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 ½ C cooked rice (I prefer Lundberg Mahogany Blend, it adds a great nutty flavor and is a raw food)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Preheat Oven to 375

Cook the rice as directed on package. While the rice is cooking boil the reserved leaves of cabbage until soft, remove from water and let drain. Place the tomatoes, tomato paste, chilli powder, and nutmeg in blender and blend till smooth. Chop the remaining cabbage and blend with the chopped onion, chopped garlic, white pepper and salt to taste. Mix together by hand the beaten egg and ground turkey and add the seasoned veggie mix and rice to the meat and egg. Form the meat mixture into balls that are a bit smaller than a baseball. Wrap the meat balls with the 2 cabbage leaves place in greased pan. Once all of the meat is used pour over the tomato sauce from the blender.

Bake 45mins @ 375

I hope that everyone enjoys this as much as my family did. This recipe works great if you need to prep it the day before you want to bake it.
