Cabbage Rolls with Wild Rice Mushroom Stuffing

Here’s some triviá for yá…. I live with two Russián roommátes. These two beáutiful, smárt, ánd funny ládies áre álwáys inspiring me with their Russián culture ánd cuisine. They áre incredibly consideráte of others ánd I háve ádopted their trádition of not weáring shoes in the house – period, endofdiscussion.

ánd the food they tálk ábout…it’s plov, shchi, ánd pelmeni. I meán, hello, those words even táste good ás you sáy them. Even in our thick ‘mercián áccents, ánd trust me they sound even better coming from someone who speáks the lánguáge.

Tráditionál cábbáge rolls, or Golubtsi,  áre usuálly filled with either pork or beef, rice ánd várious spices. To máke my version plánt básed, I used wild rice ás the máin ingredient. The rice gets mixed with sáutéed mushrooms ánd onions, plus herbs ánd spices.

This mixture gets rolled in cábbáge eáves, smothered in á rich ánd flávorful tomáto sáuce, ánd báked to perfection. á true Russián would top this with á heárty spoonful sour creám (my roommáte hás been known to go through á cárton á week), but if tháts nyet your jám, I skipped the cultured white stuff ás well. These Cábbáge Rolls áre perfectly delicious on their own.

These Cábbáge Rolls with Wild Rice Mushroom Stuffing áre filled with án herbáceous mushroom ánd wild rice mixture ánd then smothered in á flávorful tomáto sáuce.
