I absolutely love this recipe! I have made this multiple times, and I am a terrible cook but it worked out every time and tasted delicious! I actually found that there were leftovers when made for only 2 people (thats 3 cups of cabbage, 3 mushrooms, etc. for just 1 person).

The other night I didnt have all the ingredients/I dont like eggs, so I tweeked it a little and it ended up being 208 calories. I added onions and used honey instead of sugar, as well as used brown rice instead of eggs. I made a half recipe with these substitutions, but the rice ended up filling me up so I only had half of the recipe, which ended up being 208 cals.

Anyways, have fun with it and ENJOY!
