Cabbage rolls with pumpkin and rice

We are glad to offer you the recipe of a vegetarian variant for cabbage rolls. They are light, soft and noncaloric. The stuffing contains only healthy and useful products such as pumpkin and rice. You can serve the rolls as a side dish or as an appetizer.


  • 2 glasses rice
  • 6 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • 2 tbsp chopped dill
  • 1,5 glass sour cream
  • 1 kg (2,2 lb) cabbage
  • 1 kg (2,2 lb) pumpkin
  • 1 glass mushroom broth
  • salt – to taste


Wash cabbage leaves and scald them. Drain and pat dry the leaves. Cut a thick vein from each cabbage leaf.

Peel a pumpkin, slice it and fry on the preheated margarine. Wash and boil rice. Combine the pumpkin, rice, sugar and salt. Mix everything thoroughly. Place the prepared stuffing into each cabbage leaf. Fold the edges over the vegetable mixture. Shape and roll the cabbage leaf and the stuffing to the bottom. Tuck in both edges of the roll. Repeat with the remaining leaves and filling.

Transfer the cabbage rolls to a pot. Pour them with mushroom broth. Add sour cream and stew the rolls for 15 minutes.

Put the cabbage rolls on serving plates top them with sour cream and chopped dill.
