    Celiac.com 12/23/2014 - I confess to being a bit picky about cabbage. I like it, but I tend to be a bit finicky about how it is prepared. When I saw these at a party recently, I was reluctant to give them a try. Once I did, I realized I had been totally wrong. They were delicious, and they disappeared quickly, as people realized how good they were. 

    This recipe delivers about 8 tasty cabbage rolls, so scale accordingly.

    Ingredients:

    • ¼ cup chicken broth
    • ¼ cup uncooked white rice
    • 8 Savoy cabbage leaves
    • 1 pound lean ground beef
    • ¼ cup chopped onion
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 egg, slightly beaten
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1¼ cups creamy tomato soup (See recipe here)

    Directions:
    In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

    Bring a large, wide saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add cabbage leaves and cook for 2 to 4 minutes or until softened; drain. 

    In a medium mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, 1 cup cooked rice, onion, egg, salt and pepper, along with 2 tablespoons of tomato soup. Mix thoroughly.

    Divide the beef mixture evenly among the cabbage leaves. Roll and secure them with toothpicks or string.

    In a large skillet over medium heat, place the cabbage rolls and pour the remaining tomato soup over the top.

    Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 40 minutes, stirring and basting with the liquid often.

    We use ground venison instead of beef. We do not cook the rice ahead of time. Because the venison is so lean we add an entire jar of gluten-free salsa to the rice/venison mixture before rolling the cabbage rolls. We stack the rolls in a dutch oven and pour in a large can of tomato juice.

    Just want to try something different, thank you for your recipe I hope it will turns out , now I need to see what to have with it.

    Go on YouTube and watch how to make cabbage rolls.  There are plenty of Grandmas who demonstrate.    Everyone has a different method or recipe.  For example, I would never use toothpicks or tie them up.  I also bake them in the oven.

    I layer all the ingredients like lasagna and get "unrolled" cabbage roll casserole.  None of that fiddling with toothpicks or string, just coarsely chop the cabbage, layer, pop in the oven.  Much quicker and just as tasty!

    I do this with enchiladas.  I have yet to do this with cabbage rolls, but I am going for it!!!!

    Celiac.com 05/23/2013 - Mention fresh spring rolls to any number of people who've enjoyed the pleasures of Vietnamese cuisine, and you'll likely hear words of joyful praise in reply.
    The fresh spring roll possesses a certain pull over those who love them, and rarely fail to make an appearance when I'm doing the ordering.
    Some like to eat them with peanut sauce, but I prefer them with this very simple dipping sauce of vinegar, fish sauce, sugar, lime juice, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
    This recipe makes 4 spring rolls, and yields 8 pieces, enough for 4-6 people as an appetizer. Scale as needed. Also, add thin slices of cooked meat, or substitute...

    Celiac.com 12/15/2017 - Something I definitely miss since going gluten-free are spring rolls. Rarely can I find a good gluten-free spring roll. I was definitely feeling lucky when I recently tried Original Gluten-Free Spring Rolls by Lucky Foods.
    The rolls are super easy to prepare—mine were ready in around 10 minutes at 375F in a toaster oven. The rolls far exceeded my expectations, and were crispy and delicious. They are an outstanding cross-over product, and you would never know that they are gluten-free.
    The dipping sauce that came with them is also fantastic, and the rolls are vegan as well.
    If you miss spring rolls and want t...
