  1. I just recently found your blog and have been enjoying some of the recipes. I have been going gluten, dairy and sugar free for the last 2 years (faithfully within the last 9 months). I can figure out how to substitute most of the dairy in your recipes but I have yet to figure out what to use in place of cottage cheese....maybe plain yogurt? But i'd hate to heat up would no longer benefit you. hmmmm. any suggestions?

    1. Hi Anne Marie!

      It can be tough to incorporate both gluten free and dairy free into your lifestyle.

      For this recipe, I would suggest substituting soy yogurt (regular yogurt is still considered dairy as is greek yogurt since it is made with milk). You could also substitute a non-dairy cheese for the cottage cheese like almond cheese, etc.

      I hope this helps and good luck with your lifestyle change!


    2. I love mashed cauliflower...and this is a little different way to make the recipe, not sure how "clean" greek yogurt is, but I used non fat, plain....

  2. How big are the servings?

    1. They are about 3/4 of a cup! A large head of cabbage will yield 6 servings.

  3. Hello! I recently found your site and I am IN LOVE! Can't wait to try this recipe (and many, many others!) to go with dinner tonight! Thank you!!

    1. Thank you so much Kelliann! It's great to hear that you are enjoying the blog. This is a wonderful recipe - enjoy it!

  4. Does this refrigerate/reheat well?

    1. It does! I haven't tried freezing it, but it works just fine in the frige!

  5. Ohh i have to make this too! Thanks for sharing!
