As kale continues its reign as green superfood extraordinaire, we’ve been working on new and delicious ways to make it a regular part of our everyday lives—including this recipe for Vegan Kale “Cabbage” Rolls. Kale rolls—a play on cabbage rolls—feature a delicious combination of seeds and brown rice as the filling, all topped off with a homemade tomato sauce. Enjoy!
In a food processor, add onion, carrot, celery and garlic. Process to a coarse consistency.
In a large sauté pan, melt oil. Add vegetable mixture. Sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, or until tender.
In the food processor, add hemp, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds. Process to a coarse consistency.
In a large bowl, combine cooked vegetable mixture, seed mixture, brown rice, chili flakes, salt and pepper. Mix. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
Preheat oven to 375 ° F.
Cut all the kale leaves in half lengthwise, and then in half widthwise. You should have a rectangle about 4-inches by 2 or 3 inches. (It does not need to be exact and they do not all need to be the same size.) Keep any kale scraps.
In a rectangle cake pan or casserole dish, pour 1/3 of the tomato sauce on the bottom of the pan.
Take 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling and line the bottom of each kale rectangle with it. Roll into a kale tube.
Place each roll on the tomato sauce in the pan. Line the whole pan with rolls, making a second layer of rolls if needed.
Chop any kale scraps up into bite size pieces and layer them on top of the vegan kale rolls.
Pour the rest of the tomato sauce on the kale rolls, spreading it around to cover everything.
Bake for 1 hour. Let cool for 15 minutes before serving.
