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.
