    This is a traditional Egyptian dish and so delicious! If you substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stock it is a vegetarian dish.

    1. Cut out the core of the cabbage and boil the cabbage in salted water for 10 minutes. Let cool and separate the leaves.

    The rice mixture was delicious before adding it to the cabbage. After rolling it up in the cabbage and simmering it in the chicken stock, it seemed to lose most of it's wonderful flavor. Overall okay, but could use some doctoring to salvage the flavor.  -  13 Oct 2014
