I admit it, I’m a cabbage roll newbie. So I welcomed the challenge of coming up with a vegetarian stuffed cabbage roll recipe, especially one made in a slow cooker. I would learn the ropes of cabbage-roll-making while–hopefully–also cranking out a decent recipe for them!
It took a few tries to get it right, but I’m pretty happy with these Slow Cooker Mushroom-Lentil Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Based off of this recipe from Real Simple, my version swaps out the meat for lentils and mushrooms. I also opted for brown rice over white, and regular green cabbage (you know, the big round heads we’ve all seen) instead of Savoy cabbage. Green cabbage was, for me, easier to find–and sturdy enough to hold up well.
