Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

I came across this recipe on Facebook yesterday and I immediately knew I had to try it out for dinner. I realize a lot of people don’t like cabbage, but I absolutely love it! I love Patty’s Day for one reason; corned beef and cabbage, oh and the excuse to drink a lot of beer.  Cabbage is amazing for you, it actually detoxifies your body. You can read more about the health benefits of cabbage here. This dish was easy to make, the hardest part was just dicing the peppers, onion and cabbage and the rest really just took care of itself. This recipe serves about 6-8 people, so needless to say this will be my lunch today! This dish can be served over brown rice or quinoa but in my opinion was amazing without any carbs. Enjoy! unnamed1
