Preparation steps

Step 1/7
Rinse the grains in a colander under cold running water. Place the grains in a large bowl and cover with warm water and soak overnight. Drain in a colander and set aside.

Rinse the thyme and shake dry; finely chop. Heat the oil in a large skillet, saute the onions until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, grains and tomato paste; saute for 3 to 4 minutes. Add canned tomatoes and vegetable stock; season lightly with salt and pepper. Simmer gently on low heat for about 30 minutes, until the grains are tender and the liquid is almost completely absorbed. Let cool.

Meanwhile, rinse the cabbage and trim the stalk that runs down the center. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, and blanch the leaves for 3 to 4 minutes or until the leaves are pliable. Plunge the leaves into ice cold water and place them on paper towels to dry.

Drizzle cream over the cabbage rolls and sprinkle with remaining cheese and cayenne pepper.
