Make

  1. Heat oven to 400F (or 204C) degrees.
  2. Microwave marinara sauce for 1 1/2 minutes. Pour half the sauce into a 9” x 13” (or 22.5 cm x 32.5 cm) baking dish.
  3. Divide meat into cabbage leaves. Place at the bottom of the leaf and fold bottom over the meat. Fold over the sides and then roll up. Arrange in the dish.
  4. Pour rest of the marinara sauce over the cabbage rolls and bake in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. While cabbage rolls are baking, chop cauliflower and place into a microwave safe bowl with water and garlic cloves, and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave for 3 to 3 ½ minutes, until tender. Place cooked cauliflower in a food processor with butter and puree until it reaches a smooth consistency. Add more liquid or butter as needed. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Enjoy your pork cabbage rolls with pureed cauliflower!
