- 1 head cabbage
- 1 cup cooked brown lentils
- 1/2 cup cooked rice
- 1 onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp caraway seeds
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp dried dill
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Olive oil
- Creamy vegan dill sauce for serving (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
- Cut the cabbage into 8 wedges, leaving the core intact. Place the cabbage wedges in a large pot of boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the leaves are soft and pliable.
- In a large bowl, mix together the lentils, rice, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, caraway seeds, paprika, dill, salt, and pepper.
- Carefully remove the cabbage wedges from the pot and pat them dry. Divide the lentil mixture evenly among the cabbage wedges, placing it in the center of each one. Fold the cabbage leaves over the filling to enclose it.
- Place the cabbage rolls in a baking dish and drizzle with a little olive oil. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cabbage is tender and the filling is heated through.
- Serve the kåldolmar hot, with creamy vegan dill sauce on the side if desired. Enjoy!
