Un-Stuffed Cabbage Roll Casserole

Yield: 6 servings


1.5 Pound Extra Lean Ground Beef or Morningstar Crumbles

2 Medium Onions, chopped

6 Cloves Garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Pepper

16 oz. Tomato Sauce

1 Cup Water

1/2 Cup Uncooked Long Grain Rice

1 (16 oz.) Bag Dole Classic Coleslaw Mix


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown the beef until no longer pink. Drain if necessary. Add the onions, garlic, salt, pepper, tomato sauce, water, uncooked rice, and Morningstar crumbles. Bring to a simmer and cook until the rice is partially cooked (about 10-15 minutes). Spray a 9X13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Layer half of the coleslaw mix into the bottom, then spread half of the meat mixture on top of that. Repeat layers. Do not stir. Cover tightly with a piece of foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until the cabbage is tender.


Notes: If you use brown rice, you will probably have to double the tomato sauce.

Mexican Meatballs

Yield: 4 servings


2 tablespoons olive oil (or less or use Pam)

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped

1 pound ground meat (beef, chicken, sausage turkey, turkey sausage, etc)

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs (points or substitute oatmeal)

1 large egg or egg whites

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 16-ounce jar salsa


Heat oven to 400° F.


Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, preferably ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeño and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat; let cool.


In a large bowl, combine the meat, bread crumbs, egg, salt, pepper, cumin, and onion mixture. Shape into 12 meatballs.


Wipe out skillet, add the remaining oil or Pam, and heat over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, about 7 minutes total.


If not using an ovenproof skillet, transfer the meatballs to a baking dish. Pour the salsa over the top. Bake until cooked through, about 25 minutes.


Tip: If you're in the mood for soft tacos, set out light tortillas and shredded low fat cheese with the meatballs. Otherwise simply serve them over brown rice.
