Filling: Precook grains in water until done. Crush tofu. Saute remaining ingredients in oil until cooked and add cooked grains.

Sauce: Season tomato sauce with remaining ingredients.

Cabbage: Core cabbage and cook in boiling water for several minutes.

Pull leaves away as they soften. Cut out hard core of leaf. Cut largest leaves in half.

Preheat oven to 300. Oil 9"x13" casserole. Place enough tomato sauce to cover bottom. Fill cabbage leaves with cooked filling and wrap, tucking sides and ends in to form neat rolls. Place rolls snugly in casserole against each other. Spoon remaining sauce over.

Cover tightly and bake 2 hours. Leave in oven until serving time.

Sylvia's comments: I thought the original filling looked way too bland, so I modified it quite heavily and stirred in some sauce as well. I also doubled the recipe (thank goodness for Meal Master!) and now have a large amount of filling tucked in the freezer for future use. I made the sauce up in small batches, since I didn't have a huge kitchen; the "remaining batches" header is so the amounts on the MM shopping list will be correct. And I used part of the filling for stuffed peppers, which were pronounced absolutely delicious by a non-vegetarian. (He didn't ask what the ingredients were, and I didn't tell him it was vegetarian. <g>) Heavily modified from _Favorite Vegetarian Recipes_, Society for Texas Animal Rights
