Unstuffed Cabbage


1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1/2 head of cabbage, roughly chopped

8 oz. can of tomato sauce

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt


Start the meat cooking in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. While it is browning, chop the onion and crush the garlic, stir them into the turkey. Cover the pan and let it continue cooking.

Meanwhile, chop the cabbage coarsely. Stir the cabbage into the turkey mixture a bit at a time – making sure to keep turning and stirring to keep it cooking evenly. Re-cover the pan.

Continue to stir the turkey mixture to keep it cooking evenly, covering in between stirrings. When the cabbage is starting to wilt (about 10 minutes), stir in the tomato sauce, lemon juice, and seasonings. Lower the heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes, then serve.
