Ingredients

  • 12 large cabbage leaves
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 cups black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 cup fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded 2% monterey jack cheese
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 2 13 x 9-inch baking pans with nonstick spray.

In a large saucepan, add 4 cups of water and bring to boil. Remove core from cabbage and carefully peel off 12 leaves. Remove from heat. Place cabbage leaves into water for 5-10 minutes or until soft. Remove cabbage leaves using tongs and place leaves on paper towels.

Spray a large skillet with nonstick spray. Sauté onions for about 5-6 minutes over medium heat. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin, black beans, and quinoa. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add cottage cheese and diced tomatoes and mix until well combined.

Add 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce to bottom of pan and spread evenly. Fill each cabbage leaf with an equal amount of filling, about 1/3 cup each. Fold enchilada and place seam-side down into baking pan. Repeat with all cabbage leaves. Pour remaining enchilada sauce evenly over enchiladas.

Top with shredded cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly on top. Serve hot.
