I interrupt my normal breakfast posts to bring you a hearty, healthy and comforting cool weather dish! I know, you are thinking, “Thank goodness!” Maybe we will be seeing more now that it is officially frigid here in Arizona! Walking out the door to 43 degrees in the morning is quite a difference from our summer highs over 120 degrees F. 

I don’t know about you, but when the cold weather rolls in my appetite for warm, hearty and comforting foods kicks into overdrive! Forget the salads; it’s soup,  pasta, pizza and any other dish that will warm me up! I feel like I am hungry 24/7, which is why a hearty Whole30 Pumpkin Mustard Stuffed Cabbage recipe was just what was in order last week!

I was sitting down one day thinking about some of the yummy homemade meals my mom used to make as a kid, and I remembered her stuffed cabbage recipe! Wow! It has been ages since I have had that! And since I have been following a (mostly) whole30 style of eating I made a few simple swaps like using cauliflower rice in place of white rice, sweetening it up with a few warm spices like nutmeg and cinnamon and finishing it off with a seasonal pumpkin mustard! Let me tell you this turned out spot on! 

Serves 6-8 large stuffed cabbage
