Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. Give him ramen noodles, and you don’t have to teach him anything.

Thanks to Gloria for this one. I like veg recipes that have a lot of protein without resorting to faux meat (not that there's anything wrong with that...). I'm interested to see whether this tastes like my mother's, which had raisins in it, to my sister's chagrin.
1 large head of cabbage
1 C cooked bulgur
1 C cooked lentils
½ C chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
½ C mushrooms, chopped fine
2 T mild vinegar
½ C pineapple juice
1 medium can pureed tomatoes
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
1. Peel away largest cabbage leaves, parboil few minutes or until pliable.
2. While parboiling, make sauce with last three ingredients and put little in bottom of crockpot.
3. Mix lentils, bulgur, onions, mushrooms, and garlic with pineapple juice and vinegar. Roll into cabbage leaves, tucking in ends. Place rolls in crockpot and pour remaining sauce over cabbage rolls.
4. Can cook on low all day. Serve with fresh garden peas, mashed potatoes, and applesauce.
