The EASIEST Lazy Cabbage Rolls recipe because everything goes into the oven raw! All the good flavors minus all the labor of rolling! 

This is my mother-in-laws lazy cabbage rolls recipe. It’s the easiest lazy version that I’ve come to love. There is no need to pre-cook the rice or sauté anything! Everything is literally combined and baked to tenderness, super EASY!

Now don’t get me wrong I love my easy cabbage rolls recipe too but it’s not as easy as this unrolled version. If you’re looking for an easier alternative to prepping and want to satisfy that stuffed cabbage craving, then definitely give these a try!

    Wow it’s that easy??? Perfect!

    What if I cut the recipe in half? Will it still make a good amount?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      You could but keep in mind that the cabbage does cook down once stewed so it may not appear as full after baking.

    Alyona, Thank you for sharing your awesome recipes. I”ve made several and they all turned out very delicious. My family doesn’t like cabbage rolls, but likes the lazy cabbage rolls. Yes, I know, go figure. I like your spin on this recipe, bake instead of frying. I will be trying this soon. Thank you!
