1 cabbage head
1 lb lean grass-fed ground beef
1 lb ground turkey
½ onion diced
½ carrots thinly sliced
1 cup Quinoa
2 eggs
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp salt

1 (15oz) can organic tomato sauce
1 (15oz) can organic tomato chunks
3 garlic cloves
½ onion diced
2 tbsp grape seed oil
½ tsp pepper
1 tsp salt


  1. Prepare the cabbage leaves. Carefully separate the leaves from the head. Blanch 16 large leaves in boiling water for about 1 minute, or until bright green and just softened. Immediately refresh the blanched leaves in ice water. Drain and reserve.
  2. Place all filling ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly (I use my hands).
  3. In a sauce pan put your grape seed oil, minced garlic and onions. Sauté on medium high heat until onions are golden. Place tomato sauce, tomato chunks, salt and pepper into the pan. Bring to boil for 1 minute and let simmer until ready to place on cabbage rolls.
  4. Divide this mixture into sixteen 2-ounce balls. Using moistened hands, form the balls into cylinders. Place a cylinder of filling near the bottom of a cabbage leaf. Begin to roll it up, folding both sides over the filling, and finish rolling to enclose the filling, like an eggroll. Continue, filling and rolling all the cabbage leaves. Place them, seam side down, on a tray or baking sheet.
  5. Pour sauce over rolls evenly and place in oven for 1 hour at 475 degrees.
