Mediterranean Couscous Cabbage Rolls

We love the subtle flavor of cinnamon with fresh mint in these vegetarian cabbage rolls stuffed with couscous, olives and feta cheese. Don’t worry if your cabbage leaves tear a little when you pull them off the head; they will wrap up just fine. As a precaution you can cook a couple extra leaves and roll two partly overlapping if needed. Serve with roasted butternut squash tossed with olive oil, cinnamon and garlic. To double this recipe, use 2 large skillets and prepare one 4-serving recipe in each.

I tried to cut the recipe in half but forgot to cut the cinnamon, sugar, and feta in half. I don't know if that was why I loved this recipe so much or if I would've like it the way it is written. I also didn't add the olives. I would definitely make this recipe again.

Did not enjoy this recipe - it was not favorful

Did not enjoy this recipe at all. Would not make again - not much flavor.


Being vegetarian for 12 years I love new recipes. This was easy low fat and high protein. I did make it with red quinoa, used an extra clove of garlic (because I love it) and added white pepper and served it with a slice of homemade rosemary bread, but other than that it was wonderful!

Easy to make
Very tasty

We cooked this dish with quinoa instead of couscous and loved the outcome. We will definitely make this again.

My husband and I loved the addition of cinnamon in the sauce.
Not worth the effort

Bland and lots of work to put together. I won't be making this again.
