Because during Lent people feel more stressed from eating, today we want to show you only a small part of what you can eat during Lent.

Although not cooked with meat, fasting dishes can be much healthier and tastier than those that contain meat. Today we will teach you how to prepare fasting cabbage rolls in cabbage leaves, cabbage rolls prepared by the nuns at Prislop Monastery, writes

1 large sauerkraut
450 g mushroom mushrooms
1 carrot maricel - grated through a fine grater
1 small slice of grated celery

300 ml tomato juice
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1-3 bay leaves
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 bunch finely chopped green parsley

freshly ground pepper
2 sprigs of thyme
1 oregano powder
2-3 tablespoons oil
boiled water

Finely chop the onion in 2-3 tablespoons of oil until it becomes glassy. Then put half of the grated carrot and cook them together for another 1 minute. Put the finely chopped mushrooms over them and continue to harden until they soften a little. At this point add the well-washed and drained rice, thyme, salt, pepper and finely chopped parsley.

Useful tips for hostesses

There are several ways to pickle a vegetable. Combinations with different spices, spices and additives give the finished dish a different taste. It can be spicy, slightly sour or sweeter. Therefore, salads with green and brown tomatoes and sauerkraut also differ in their taste.

Cabbage is preferable to choose late varieties, without signs of damage or rot.

To enhance the aroma and taste of garlic, use garlic, onions, dill seeds, herbs and spices, bell peppers and carrots. Sour cabbage gets a special personality in combination with green tomatoes. It's worth noting that you can't just cover white cabbage. From these recipes they become even more diverse.

Another way to increase the number of pickles - different options for handling cabbage forks. They can be usually cut, cut into slices or squares, fermented in halves or in a whole head of cabbage.

Also, tomatoes are used whole, cut in half, slices or rings.

Before cooking, the vegetables are sorted, washed and cleaned.

If the workpiece is enclosed in jars, they must be washed and sterilized.

Preparations for the winter are often made from already fermented cabbage, adding unripe tomatoes. Or you can tie the vegetables in the same container at the same time. Consider the recipes of the different options.


1. Wash the cabbage and unwrap it in sheets. Remove thick ribs and cut into rectangles, suitable for filling. Chop the rest of the cabbage.

2. In a saucepan with a thicker bottom, fry the finely chopped onion in 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Add diced rice, mushrooms and carrots. Stir gently, then quench with half a cup of water and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Cover, and when cool, add the tomato juice, diced bell pepper, finely chopped greens, a pinch of salt and pepper. (Pay attention to the amount of salt, because the cabbage leaves are salty!)

3. Fill the sarmales with this mixture and place in a saucepan with a thicker bottom, greased with oil, in which a thin layer of chopped cabbage and a few peppercorns was placed. Pour enough water to cover the sarmales, sprinkle a little dill and boil in the oven for about an hour.

What do you find in a cabbage?

This vegetable is a storehouse of vitamins and minerals, contains fiber, vitamins A, B, C, E, K and U, adequate amounts of potassium, iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium. Cabbage is low in calories and fat. Cabbage leaves can be slightly sweet or slightly bitter in taste.

Cabbage, like all vegetables, contains phytochemicals & # 8211 natural protective compounds with health-promoting properties. There are over 1000 known phytochemicals, and the most important contained in cabbage are isothiocyanates and indole-3-carbinol.

Isothiocyanates are antioxidants that help eliminate toxins. Indole-3-carbinol is anticancer. Red cabbage is a winner when it comes to antioxidants because it contains anthocyanin (not found in white cabbage). This phytochemical gives red cabbage its color and has strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial actions.

One of the reasons why kale is considered a superfood is the large number of vitamins and minerals. It is good to know that by boiling you lose a lot of nutrients & # 8211 to avoid this, choose to steam kale or mix it with other vegetables in the pan.

Sarmalute with rice, in cabbage leaves

The washed rice is kept in water to swell. Chop the onions and peppers small, cut the donuts also small and put them all in hot oil and on low heat, so that they soften well.

Peel a squash, grate it and chop it in a saucepan. When the tomatoes have drained, add the rice and mix everything until the rice has absorbed all the juice from this mixture. Remove from the heat, add the chopped green parsley, sprinkle with pepper and salt to taste and continue to mix.

From this paste, the cabbages are shaped into cabbage leaves, which can be made even tighter, so that they do not fall apart when boiled. Place in a saucepan, in overlapping rows, pour water, a little borscht, 3 tablespoons of oil adding thyme, bay leaves, a few celery leaves and put everything in the oven to boil well. When cooked, they can be served hot or cold.

1. For starters, we clean and wash the sheets cabbage. Leave in cold water for about 2 hours so as not to be too sour. We choose cabbages that have softer leaves.

2. In a frying pan, harden onion until it turns golden. It adds carrot chopped in a blender or put on a large grater, and when it has softened, add the 2 tablespoons of broth. Leave for another 3 minutes, remove the pan from the heat and leave the composition to cool.

3. In a large bowl, mix the sarmale mixture. It adds pepper chopped small cubes, parsley, minced meat, rice (after being left to soak for 5-10 minutes), the mixture onion and carrot cooled well, salt, pepper to taste thyme, dill and a teaspoon of sweet Boya. Optionally, 1-2 can be added eggs for a better bound composition, but not mandatory. Mix well and prepare the cabbage leaves to make the sarmales.

We know that there are very skilled housewives among us who do things exactly the right way, but for those who are not so experienced in the art of stuffing and need a little inspiration before they start folding, I asked my mother to show us step by step how he does them.

Patiently, we repeat the process with each one until our fingertips wrinkle and we get a large and beautiful platter with cabbage rolls ready to be put in the oven.

4. We are preparing the pot in which the sarmales will boil. We place it on the bottom of the vessel cabbage leaves and a few threads of thyme dry. The cabbage will take care that the sarmales do not catch or burn.

5. Put a layer of cabbage, a layer of cabbage chopped and another layer of sarmale. We put a few grains on top pepper, 3-4 Bay leaves, and in a bowl mix a cup & # 8211 two of the water, in which we dissolve 2 tablespoons of broth. The stuffing should be almost covered with water, about 3 fingers below. The rice needs water to boil. At the end we cover the sarmales with cabbage leaves and put the lid of the vessel (either aluminum foil).

6. Put the dish in the oven for about 2-3 hours at 160 degrees. It is good for the sarmales to boil for as long as possible at a lower temperature. This way the sarmales will not fall apart and will have much more flavor.

I served the cabbage rolls with greasy cream and garnished them with the chopped cabbage that I put to boil between the cabbage rolls. Good appetite and increase in cooking!
