Total: 1 hr 25 min Prep: 15 min Cook: 1 hr 10 min

Yield: 6 servings

Level: Easy



  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen chopped onions, Ore-Ida
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped green apple
  • 1 box (6-ounce) long grain and wild rice mix, Near East
  • 2 1/2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth, Swanson
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, Diamond
  • 15 large green cabbage leaves
  • 1 jar (26-ounce) marinara sauce, Newmans Own


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup of the onions, the celery, and apple; saute for 5 minutes. Stir in rice, seasoning packet from rice mix, 3/4 cup of the broth, and garlic. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Rice should be al dente. Transfer to a medium bowl; stir in pecans. Set aside.

  • Place 12 to 15 large cabbage leaves in a large bowl. Cover with boiling water; let stand for 2 to 3 minutes or until wilted. Cut off thickest part of each cabbage leaf. Place 2 tablespoons of the rice mixture near the stem end of a leaf. Fold over sides and roll up. Do not roll too tightly as the rice will expand as it cooks. Repeat with remaining leaves and rice mixture.

  • Place cabbage rolls, seam sides down, in a shallow baking dish. Pour marinara sauce over the top and sprinkle with remaining onions. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Serve hot with sauce.

The ingredients call for 2.5 cups of broth but the directions only tell you what to do with 3/4cup of broth. I added the extra broth to the tomato sauce but wish the recipe was more carefully written. End result was ok See All Reviews Post Review
