Hello my lovelies! I wanted to challenge myself this month with dishes that are common home-cooked meals for many Swedish households. Cabbage rolls is one of those meals and I have honestly never been fond of this dish which really motivated me to make a recipe that works for me and I am happy to state that it turned out delicious!



Serves 4-6 people.


What you need for filling:


350g vegan mince

3 dl (1.2 cup) boiled rice

1 1/2 dl (0.6 cup) vegan milk

2 tbsp umami spice

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp salt



What you need for the cabbage:


1 Whole cabbage

Water for boiling

1 tsp salt


What you need for gravy:


2 dl (0.8 cup) water

2 dl (0.8 cup) food cream

2 tbsp flour

1 vegetable stock cube

1 tsp soy for colour

Salt and pepper to taste


For lingonberry jam:


225g lingonberries

1/2 dl (0.2 cup) water

1 1/4 dl (0.5 cup) sugar


For frying:


2 tbsp vegan butter

3 tbsp maple syrup


Makes about 10-12 cabbage rolls.


Follow along with my video down below.



If you don't have leftover mince and rice we will begin with boiling rice and frying off vegan mice. Once they are cooked add it into a bowl along with milk, umami, salt, pepper and fold together. Set aside for now.


In a large pot add enough water to cover the cabbage, add salt and bring it to a boil while we remove the stem of the cabbage. Add the cabbage into the pot with the bottom facing up little by little the leaves will soften which allows you to release the leaves from the cabbage. Once they are soft enough drain the leaves and remove the leaf vein.


Now we are going to create our cabbage packages, add a large tablespoon of the filling onto a cabbage leaf. Fold in the sides of the leaves and then roll into a cylindrical shape. Rinse and repeat until you run out of filling.


Now we are going to fry our cabbage rolls bring a pan to medium high heat and add butter. Place the cabbage rolls with the fold down into the pan, drizzle maple syrup on the rolls and fry for a couple of minutes for a couple of minutes the cabbage should have a golden surface.


Remove the cabbage rolls and set aside on a baking tray while we get onto making our gravy, add the water and flour into the frying pan while whisking. Once it looks thicker add the cream, vegetable stock, soy, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until it thickens up and pour it over cabbage rolls and pop them into the oven at 200℃ (390℉) and for 30 minutes.


In a pot add lingonberries and water, bring it to a boil on medium high heat for 10 minutes. Now add the sugar little by little while folding the berries. Once the sugar has dissolved it's good to cool down. If you want to preserve the jam pour it into sterilized jars tighten the lid and keep refrigerated.


Serve with boiled potatoes.
