These low-carb cabbage wraps are a healthier version of a traditional Irish dish. Cabbage leaves serve as a perfect vessel for fillings because, aside from being delicious, they’re strong enough to hold meat and veggies when cooked. Napa and savoy cabbage both have large leaves that make them ideal for rolling, and they’re paleo-friendly. Whether you’re a paleo-diet veteran, thinking about going paleo or just looking for a new and unique meal, this recipe is a great addition to your rotation.
