Stuffed cabbage rolls (golabki, holubki, töltött káposzta) perfect as a healthy and satisfying summer meal for your family.
Oh yeah, this dish definitely belongs to my most favorite ones 🙂 I just love it 🙂 Stuffed cabbage rolls are popular not only within my family but across all of the Central East and Eastern European countries. The recipes might be slightly different and some of the ingredients can be changed. But the core, which is the cabbage, rice and meat and the way of cooking them stays the same. In East Slovakia (Zemplín area), you can find them on weddings, after baptism ceremonies or even on burial feasts. They are also very popular in Hungary (töltött káposzta) and in Poland (golabki).
Although many people think that they are originally Hungarian, the truth is that they are coming from the Balkans. The first recipes were brought to our countries from Romania and Turkey during the Ottoman Empire times (between 15-17th century).
I am making them 2-3 times per year and still learning the perfect recipe 🙂 This time I have changed the white rice for a roasted buckwheat. To my surprise, there was no difference in taste. And thanks to this slight change, the dish got a bit healthier look. 🙂
