Krautroulade, Cabbage Roll
Alpine cuisine is often so-called poor-people-cooking, which basically means a lot of vegetables and little meat. Many recipes are to be varied, consisting of mixtures, often called a "Restl-Essen" (eating up leftovers). Krautroulade can be found in different combinations with varying fillings or sauces, it is also known as "Krautwickel" oder "Kohlroulade".

Heads of Cabbage
10-15 cabbage leaves (green cabbage or savoy cabbage)
400g minced meat
1 cup cooked rice
1 tablespoon flour
1 teaspoon caraway
2 teaspoon chopped parsley
0.5 liter soup
1 tablespoon butter
Take outer leaves from cabbage head, cut out harder parts cut (stalks), and blanch.
Cut onion into small pieces and roast. Put minced meat into a bowl, add chopped tomato, rice, egg and flour. Add onion, caraway, parsley, salt and pepper. Use 1-3 cabbage leaves for each roll, depending on the size of the leaves. Fill each role with 3-4 tablespoons of the filling. Use toothpicks, clips or splits to fix a roll. Use a casserole to fill in roles closely together. When all roles are in the casserole, fill in the soup, use as much soup to nearly cover the roles. Put butter flakes on top of the roles. Leave the casserole for 45min at 180 degrees in the pipe. The rolls can be enjoyed in the soup or with potatoes.
