High Protein Cabbage Roll Casserole

This recipe is a staple around our house. It is easy to make and a nice alternative to rolling cabbage rolls. It can be made a ahead of time and put in the fridge until you are ready to bake it. It has a high protein count and you could substitute tempeh or diced portabellos if you would prefer a vegetarian option. Serve with shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream. It also makes a great left over or lunch the next day.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
