Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you will cook it by steaming. The fiber-related components in cabbage do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they’ve been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it’s easier for bile acids to be excreted, and the result is a lowering of your cholesterol levels. Raw cabbage still has cholesterol-lowering ability, just not as much as steamed cabbage.

I used fresh savoy cabbage leaves instead of the traditional pickled ones and simmered the filled rolls in an onion rich and paprika flavored sauce.
These little parcels are perfect comfort food on a chilly winter night.
