What you will need

  • ½ a cup of rice
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp of olive oil
  • ½ an onion, roughly chopped
  • ½ an onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp of honey
  • 250g of mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp of tomato pasta
  • 1tsp each of fresh thyme, oregano and parsley
  • 1 tin of crushed tomatoes
  • 1tsp of Natural Herbs and Spices Vegetable & Savoury
  • 1tsp each of fresh thyme, oregano and parsley
  • Natural Herbs & Spices Black Peppercorns
  • 2tsp of Natural Herbs & Spices Vegetable & Savoury
  • 1 Tbsp of soya sauce
  • Natural Herbs & Spices Black Peppercorns
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp of ground flax seeds
  • For cabbage wraps - 6 large cabbage leaves


Let’s start off by making the filling. In a small pot cook rice according to package instructions. Now, in a separate pot drizzle in oil and fry onion and garlic until onions are translucent and garlic is fragrant. Scatter in mushrooms, sprinkle in herbs and season well with Natural Herbs & Spices Vegetable and Savoury Seasoning, Natural Herbs & Spices Black Pepper as well as soya sauce. Cook the mushroom mixture until mushrooms are tender and liquid has completely evaporated. By now the rice should be cooked. Strain the rice and add to your mushroom mixture. Allow the mixture to completely cool before mixing in the flax seeds and egg.

Time to make the tasty tomato sauce. In a shallow pot fry onion and garlic in olive oil. Spoon in honey and tomato pasta and cook for 1 minute, until tomato pasta has caramelised. Pour in crushed tomatoes, sprinkle in herbs and season well withNatural Herbs & Spices Vegetable and Savoury Seasoning and Natural Herbs & Spices Black Pepper. Before giving everything a good mix, pour in water and allow the sauce to simmer for 10 minutes.       

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Lower in cabbage leaves and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft.

Time for us to assemble the rolls. Evenly divide the mushroom filling mixture between your cabbage wraps. Roll the cabbage wraps, make sure to tuck in the sides while rolling and secure with toothpicks. Place the rolls in the simmering sauce, cover and cook for a further 10-15 minutes until sauce has thickened. We suggest serving the cabbage rolls on a bed of steamed or roasted veggies with a generous sprinkle of parsley.
