Add this hearty unstuffed cabbage roll skillet to your weekly dinner menu

An Affair From The Heart

If you like cabbage rolls but don’t have the time needed to make them, you need to check out the unstuffed cabbage roll skillet from An Affair from the Heart. This hearty, one-pot meal has all the flavors you love in a cabbage roll, without all the time and work involved. Plus, its ingredients are inexpensive and include some you may already have on hand. It’s also chock-full of fiber, thanks to the cabbage, tomatoes and brown rice.

If you want it to sound fancy, simply call it a “deconstructed” cabbage roll. And if you’re worried about your family rejecting it in favor of a real-deal roll, fear not. They may like the skillet even more, if the reaction of blogger Michaela’s husband is any indication (as documented on the recipe page). Sounds like a win!

The blend of lime juice, chili powder and jalapeno also makes the dish anything but boring. It will take you just 35 minutes to make — and with one pan, clean-up is a breeze.
