Hello Lovelies, so here it comes, the most important dish of the day and the star of the dinner: the main dish (okay for some people dessert is more important:-). While I was doing some research on the internet looking for Christmas menu ideas I found lots of vegan roasts, with nuts or lentils or ideas with puff pastry. Lot of them really sounded delicious, but there have been lots of recipes already. So I wanted to do something else. I already had an idea with Savoy cabbage in my head for a long time, so I decided I had to use it.
Thats how I came up with the idea to make Savoy cabbage rolls. With a sophisticated filling with black rice, mushrooms and chestnuts. Served with a creamy white wine and mushroom sauce and oven roasted maple glazed Brussel sprouts with cranberries and hazelnuts. Do you need to her more?
Everyone really liked the dish and even Daddy Frei who usually isn’t too enthusiastic about Brussel sprouts loved it this way (even though he is not happy to admit it ;-). I’m pretty sure that these rolls are perfect for a family dinner and can convince meat lovers as well. We will enjoy it again on Christmas for sure. And if you can’t find black rice, then just use any other kind or even bulgur or quinoa would be a perfect fit.
Do you already know what you are serving on Christmas Eve? Do you have a special tradition in your family or are you open and happy to try new things every year? I would be super happy of course if some of you try the cabbage rolls.
