Paleo Stuffed Cabbage

Rating: 4.5 stars 19
I love stuffed cabbage (galumpkis) and wanted to share my version of paleo stuffed cabbage. I also love zucchini so I find a way to incorporate it in many meals. I made this for a dinner party and everyone was commenting on how delicious and light they were but nobody realized that rice was omitted and I used cauliflower and zucchini. I was hoping for leftovers but that was not the case!

Chicken Stuffed Baked Avocados

This is a recipe that I hope gets passed down. Everyone seems to like it. We make it as a main dish when I make it with chicken. We also make it a side when omitting the chicken. We will then have grilled chicken with it.
