Zoe’s Savoy Cabbage Parcels
Prep time: 15 mins
Cook time: 25 mins
9 large Savoy cabbage leaves
1 leek, thinly sliced
1 butternut squash, peeled and diced
2 tsp dried thyme/fresh thyme
Ground black pepper
Veg Portions / Serving: 1
- Steam or boil the leek and butternut squash until soft.
- Mix the leek, butternut squash, thyme and black pepper together in a bowl.
- Boil the Savoy cabbage leaves for 5-8 minutes. It’s important that the veg remains fairly firm so that the cabbage leaves can hold the veg in the parcels.
- Lay the leaves on a chopping board and add 1 heaped tbsp of veg to the centre of one cabbage leaf. Fold the sides in first and then wrap into a parcel shape.
You can use whatever seasonal veg you have to put inside your Savoy cabbage parcels.
Kids in the kitchen:
The kids will love this one as it’s very hands-on, just make sure nothing is too hot to handle if using their hands! Get them to mixture the filling together, and let them have fun rolling and folding up the cabbage rolls.
