Helpful hints

  • Cabbage rolls can be cooked in a slow cooker on low setting for 6 to 8 hours instead of baked in the oven.
  • If you are following a low-potassium diet, be aware 2 cabbage rolls are equal to 2 vegetable servings. Consuming extra servings of fruits or vegetables can cause high potassium levels.
