Instead of cabbage, which is used to make cabbage rolls, you can use onions. The vegetable also needs to be steamed. The slices become soft, and you can easily wrap the minced meat in them.

The idea of making onion cabbage rolls was published on the Instagram page of the famous Ukrainian chef Hector Jimenez-Bravo (hectorjimenezbravo). Instead of frying vegetables, make a sauce with tomato puree and pomegranate juice.
