Pressure Cooker Lazy Cabbage Rolls (AIP, Paleo, Nightshade-Free)

I just love cabbage and cabbage rolls are no exception. And bonus, it’s all good for you.

Mine aren’t made with beef or pork, but with ground turkey and, of course, no tomatoes! A blogger friend of mine (at Food To Heal Ourselves) posted her Easy Nomato Sauce last week. I made it and am so impressed with it, I’ve included it in this recipe.

This is such an easy recipe to make, it only takes about 10 minutes to put together, and another 20-30 minutes from start to finish in the pressure cooker. Far easier than having to wrap up each leaf of cabbage and bake in the oven.

Recipe Notes

If you wish to bake this in the oven instead of a pressure cooker, set oven temp. to 350F and once all is together in your pot of choice (dutch oven would work well), bake for about an hour - check the cabbage to ensure it is cooked through.

* Ginger is good to help prevent that gas you get after eating cabbage, or any other cruciferous vegetables.
