Stuffed Cabbage

INGREDIENTS
10-12 large cabbage leaves
½ small onion diced
1 clove of garlic chopped
1 tbs olive oil
1 pound ground turkey
1 cup hulled barley (soaked at least 5 hours)
2 cups marinara sauce
2 tbs fresh basil chopped
METHOD: Bring a large pot of water to boil. Drop in the cabbage leaves and blanche for a minute or two, just enough to make them wilt. Remove and drain, set aside. Saute the onion and garlic in large pan with olive oil over low heat. When softened, add the ground turkey to the pan and cook until cooked through. Add the barley (feel free to add any cooked vegetables you may have, I added some leftover fiddleheads), 1 cup of the marinara sauce , the basil and salt and pepper to your taste. Remove from heat. Take a cabbage leaf and lay out onto work surface. Put a couple of tablespoons of the filling in the center of the leaf (the amount will vary dependent upon the size of the leaves). Fold in all sides and place into a baking pan, folded side down. Continue until all filling is used up. Pour the remaining marinara sauce over the rolled leaves. Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake for 25 mins until heated through.
