Lean cabbage rolls-ingredients:
- 200 g of rice;
- 1 small cabbage;
- 2-3 carrots;
- 1 bell pepper;
- 2 onions;
- 2 garlic cloves;
- 300 ml tomato juice;
- bay leaf;
- ground coriander;
- ground black pepper to taste;
- sugar to taste;
- salt to taste.
Lean cabbage rolls-recipe for cooking:
- In a large amount of salted water, boil the rice until ready. Rinse with cold running water through a colander.
- Separate the whole cabbage leaves, blanch in boiling water until soft. Take out the leaves and let them cool.
- Fry the finely chopped onion and grated carrot in vegetable oil.
- Add the bell pepper, cut into small cubes, and cook, stirring, until it becomes soft.
- At the end, throw the chopped garlic and spices into the pan.
- Separate about 1/3 of the roast and mix with the rice. Add salt to taste.
- Pour the rest of the tomato juice, add a little fire, and let the roast cook for 3-5 minutes. Add salt, add sugar to taste, mix and remove from heat. The gravy should be quite rich, so that the cabbage rolls do not turn out to be fresh.
- In each cabbage leaf, cut off the hard part of the root. Put the minced rice on a cabbage leaf and wrap it in an envelope.
- Put the cabbage rolls in a saucepan and pour the gravy so that it completely covers the cabbage rolls. If the gravy was not enough, you can add a little boiled water.
- Put the cabbage rolls in the oven for half an hour at 180 C.
