Turmeric White Cabbage Chicken Rolls
- 4 leaves of white cabbage
- 300 g chicken breast cutted into cubes
- 1 small chopped onion
- 200 g broccoli
- 2 carrots on thin sticks
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp curcumin
- 1 Tbsp coconut oil
- Chopped parsley
Start by soaking the cabbage leaves in boiled water, about 5 minutes.
Remove the leaves by draining the water and place them on a clean kitchen towel to absorb the excess.
In a frying pan or wok, add coconut oil with the chopped onion and let it cook about 4 minutes on low heat.
Add turmeric, lemon juice and cumin, mixing everything for about 2 minutes.
Add the broccoli cutted into small pieces and the carrot strips. Cook about 5 minutes.
Add the chicken, a little salt, stirring to coat. Let it cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Add chopped parsley at the end.
Remove the chicken mixture and, in the same frying pan, roast the cabbage leaves for 1 minute on both sides, so that they absorb some of the turmeric sauce.
Place the chicken mixture in the middle of the cabbage leaves, being careful not to overfill.
Roll the leaves, starting by the corners, until forms a "bag".
It's ready to serve!
