Vegetarian Stuffed Cabbage

If you didn't enter my Nana's Vegan Cookie Giveaway, check it out. I will pick a winner on Friday at 9 am Eastern Time.

Last week we received a purple cabbage in our CSA box. My husband is a great cook and a couple years ago he modified his stuffed cabbage recipe to make it vegetarian.

We started by steaming the cabbage in boiling water and then cooling it down in a bowl of cold water.

While the cabbage is boiling, saute a large onion, Morningstar Farms Crumbles, salt and pepper in a little EVOO.

You also will need some brown rice. We used some minute rice that we picked up with a coupon. This is four servings of rice.

Once the onion and Morningstar mixture is done (the onion should be soft) mix it with the rice in a bowl. We tried to use a flax egg (ground flax and water) to bind the mixture, but it didn't quite work (maybe I need more of it), so Steve also added two egg whites to this mixture.
Then gently pull leaves of the cabbage off of the steamed cabbage, fill it with the mixture and roll it.

We use a slow cooker and cover the bottom with crushed tomatoes then place a layer of stuffed cabbage.

After you have a layer of cabbage, add some more crushed tomatoes and continue to layer until all the cabbage is rolled.

We cooked it on low for a couple hours and then just kept it warm until ready to eat. I topped mine with a little organic vegetarian cheese and had a 1/2 of food for life sprouted grain english muffin.

We enjoyed the left overs from this meal for several days.
Does anyone have any other good vegetarian cabbage recipes? We have another large cabbage from Tuesday's CSA!

mmmm that looks fantastic. I've made something similar before but used lentils instead of the morningstar. Lentils can have such a meaty texture!

I wish I could give this recipe to my G'ma so she could revamp her cabbage rolls. Hers are delicious but stuffed with tons and tons of meat. Also, she calls them, "Pigs in the Blanket."
