Raw Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Raw Stuffed Cabbage Rolls


In my experiments with raw food, I came up with this recipe of stuffed cabbage, one of the traditional foods from Romania. This recipe is easy to make, budget friendly and tasty. Word of caution to all of those who would expect the taste of “sarmale”, it is not. It looks like sarmale, some of the ingredients are the same but it doesn’t taste like it and the texture is different. Yet tastes delicious.





1 cup buckwheat soaked in water overnight

1 cup nuts soaked in water overnight

1 cup carrots finely shredded

1 medium onion finely chopped

10-11 leaves of sauerkraut sliced in half

1 cup tomatoes diced

salt, pepper to taste

1 tsp nutmeg

3-4 tbsps cold pressed olive oil


Soak the cabbage leaves in water for half hour to take away dome of the saltiness.

When you are ready to roll the cabbage, drain the water form the buckwheat and nuts and rinse well.  Mix with the shredded carrots, diced onion, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

In the prepared leaves, start to spoon about one spoon of the mix and roll.  I’ve got 24 rolls from my leaves.

From the leftover leaves and the tomatoes make a salad, sprinkle it with the oil and serve with the cabbage rolls. It can be saved in the fridge for 2-3 days.
