For as far as I can remember, my mom has always made delicious pork filled cabbage rolls that melted in your mouth. The insides were filling and flavorful, wrapped in a buttery crescent roll. Just thinking about them now makes my mouth water. While I am unable to replicate these while on Whole30, I was still craving that flavorful and hearty meal and this substitute hit the spot. A Family Feast is responsible for this meal, and you can find the recipe here!
The inside stuffing consists of pork sausage (I used turkey sausage), fennel seeds, prosciutto, and cauliflower. Top that off with the homemade sauce and the combination works perfectly. For those of you who do not like cauliflower, I was not able to taste the cauliflower at all after everything was cooked.
There are quite a few steps in this recipe, and it is one that takes a few different pans so be ready for some dishes afterwards. But the end result is worth it.
This week was one of the first weeks that I had officially gotten sick of cooking. Prior to preparing this, I had just gotten done doing the dishes from previous meals over the weekend. SO MANY DISHES! It probably doesn't help much that this is my least favorite chore, but still. Whole30 is a lot of hard work.
I have been feeling a little worn down from all of the temptations lately. I've been slightly stressed at work; combine that with my MBA class and keeping up with this blog and the extra effort to say no to my cravings has been wearing.
What is energizing, though, is the amount of people that have reached out to me about my blog and how much they enjoy reading it. It's so encouraging knowing that in just the few weeks that I have been doing this people have already been impacted! You are my support and I am so grateful for it. I appreciate you and any feedback that you may have - thanks so much!
