stuffed savoy cabbage and roasted vegetables

savoy cabbage is really the beauty of the cabbage world. so distinct and it has really lovely leaves. i found a recipe for stuffed cabbage here and had the chance to make it for a second time this weekend.

in making this dish twice i've discovered that the hardest part is finding savoy cabbage! usually not sold in regular markets i have narrowed markets that sell savoy to these three: henry's market in costa mesa on harbor blvd., h-mart in diamond jamboree, and ralph's on harvard ave. not all henry's or ralph's carry it and surprisingly whole foods didn't have it last time i checked.

these parcels are rolled by hand and arranged tightly in a pot. they're cooked in tomato sauce to fully cook the stuffing inside.

it's a really easy dish to make and i think it's pretty healthy if you use the leanest ground beef you can find. the stuffed cabbage was served with a side of roasted veggies: parsnips, sweet potato, carrots, and small potatoes. these were tossed in a little olive oil, maple syrup, herbs, and S&P and roasted on a baking sheet in the oven at 400 degrees for 45min., toss half way through.

i'm going to try to eat better this year and eat less. i used to like the feeling of being stuffed but nowadays i like the feeling of being satisfied. it's going to be really hard but i think it'll be a good habit to have.
