Today is my 2nd recipe entry for the RedPack Tomato contest I wrote about yesterday. This recipe is one of my dad’s favorite meals, and since we are trying to eat healthy, I decided to give it a healthy spin. Here’s the original, followed by my heart healthy adaptation. This might have to be something I pull together for a night at Grandma’s soon!
Easy Cabbage Rolls for Pappy adpated from “Lazy Day Cabbage Rolls”
2 cans tomato soup and 2 cans water
1 can tomato paste
1 head cabbage, cubed
1 lb. ground turkey
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 cup egg beaters
“No” Salt (light, to taste)
Heat tomato soup, water, and tomato paste in a large pan. Add cabbage cubes.
In a separate bowl, combine turkey, rice, onion, egg, and a pinch of salt.
Add the meat mixture to the heated tomato mixture and cook about an hour on medium heat (stove top).
This is similar to a casserole and includes a good amount of veggies and lean meat for your heart. Delicious!
