1 cup uncooked basmati rice
1-2/3 cups low-salt broth, divided
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds, crushed
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 garlic clove, minced
28-ounce can plum tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1/3 cup finely chopped pimento-stuffed green olives

Steam cabbage leaves, covered, 3 minutes; set aside. Heat oil in
a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leek, celery, carrot,
and garlic; saute 7 minutes. Add rice, 1 cup broth, and fennel
seeds; cover and cook 7 minutes or until the liquid is nearly
absorbed. Combine the rice mixture, 2 tablespoons parsley, and 1/2
teaspoon salt in a bowl; toss well, and set the rice mixture aside.

Add 1/3 cup broth to skillet; place over medium heat until hot.
Add onion; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add remaining
1/3 cup broth, parsley, and next 5 ingredients (parsley through
tomatoes); bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10
minutes. Remove from heat; stir in olives and pepper. Set sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spoon 1/3 cup rice mixture onto each cabbage leaf, and roll up
jelly-roll fashion. Place cabbage rolls in a 13 x 9-inch baking
dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon sauce over cabbage rolls.
Cover and bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour. Yield: 12 servings (serving
size: 1 cabbage roll and 1/3 cup sauce).

Reviewer: Donna Sanders from Schoharie, New York
I never did like stuffed cabbage till i tried this recipe. I think the fennel and leek added a lot of the flavor to this dish.
