In Vietnam, cabbage rolls are served in a soup | casaveneracion.com

There are two cabbage rolls recipes in the archive. One has chicken filling, served with white sauce and topped with grated cheese. The other is the more well-known version, stuffed with ground pork and simmered in tomato sauce. Both are main dishes.

In Vietnam, cabbage rolls are served as a soup. Much as I like cabbage rolls served with sauce, red or white, I must say that as a soup, cabbage rolls are much, much better. The light broth makes you appreciate the subtle sweetness of the cabbage leaves more and the inclusion of cilantro in the filling gives the cabbage rolls a refreshing flavor that you really have to experience to understand.
