“Kålpudding” is a traditional Swedish dish using the same ingredients as cabbage rolls (“kåldolmar”), but instead of wrapping the meat mixture in cabbage you layer it in an oven tray.
Original recipes often calls for rice and/or breadcrumbs to be added to the meat mixture, syrup to be added to the cabbage and is traditionally served with potatoes, brown gravy thickened with wheat flour and sugary lingonberry jam…
…however, in this version I’ve made it Paleo friendly.
I do use a little bit of honey though (about 1/2 – 1/4 of the amount of syrup often used), but you can absolutely skip it if it does not fit in your diet.
I served this together with a fresh salad and a gravy that’s only fine if you’re OK with dairy (fried onion, a little bit of beef stock, a cup (2.5 dl) smetana, a dash of coconut aminos, salt and pepper).
What’s also great to this dish is (non-sugary) lingonberry jam!
That’s it, hope you’ll enjoy! :)
