In a round pot as per photo line the base with a little ghee or butter, leave some for the stuffing, then thinly slice a potato and layer it in the bottom of the pot.
Separately wash all the herbs well & drain, this is the time to use that salad spinner you’ve been storing 🙂 add all the above ingredients apart from the cabbage & broth, to a kitchen machine, and blitz till all combined and chopped finely, and thats your stuffing ready.
Boil some water in a separate pot and blanch the cabbage for a few seconds, then cut into pieces as per the photo and layer half on top the of the potato, add the stuffing in the middle, then finish layering with the rest of the cabbage.
Place over a medium heat, add the hot broth to the cabbage and cook for about 15 minutes till lost of the broth have been absorbed by the rice, then lower the heat and cook for further 20 minutes, checking occasionally to ensure cabbage is soft. Serve with either your choice of meat or chicken and salad. If you are vegan then replace the bone broth with organic MSG free vegetable stock and the ghee with coconut olive oil.
