1 small-medium head of cabbage chopped small
3 or 4 diced green onions
2 small cans of sliced mushrooms
2 stems of celery chopped small
2 cans of all white chicken meat (I use 3 of the chicken breasts that I cooked in a big pot of water with some veggies. Then, I save the broth and strain out the veggies)
1 gallon of chicken stock or combination of water and stock to make about 1 gallon.
2 sticks (1/2#) of butter
In a large pot, saute the mushrooms in the 2 sticks of butter. Add in the celery and green onions and saute till a little tender. Add the head of cabbage and stir. Let it cook until the cabbage wilts and softens. Add in the chicken and stir. Finally, add the chicken stock and let simmer for about 1 hour. Season to your liking with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little thyme.

Beef Rouladen (Omas Recipe) made for low carb
"Oma, means Grandmother"
Preheat oven to 350
green onions,cut into 2 or 3 inch pieces
dill pickle spears
bacon, precooked soft, save bacon drippings
Pounding out the meats make the squares larger and easy to roll.
Cut round steak into four even squares ,I pound them out to tenderize, spread mustard on each piece, add green onion slices, add two bacon slices, may have to fold bacon. Then add dill spear.
Roll meat as tightly as you can,either tie meat or use toothpicks.
Brown in bacon drippings,transfer to baking pan, cover and bake 45 minutes to one hour. Meat will be tender.
This also can be simmered on the stove top in a covered frying pan.

1 to 1/2 pounds fish fillets, thawed and patted dry
1 10 ounce package frozen spinach, thawed and with all the excess water squished out (eeewww!)
2 teaspoons dried parsley (optional)
1/2 cups crushed pork rinds (optional)
4 - 5 cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Spread the spinach over the bottom of a casserole dish. (I find that an 8" or 9" casserole works well for 1 pound of fish.) Arrange the fish fillets over the spinach. Salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with crushed pork rinds, if desired. (Use a light touch.) Arrange sliced tomatoes over cheese. Shake dried parsley over all.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Serves 4 if they're not big eaters. Reheats reasonably well, but best when freshly baked.
Low Carb Spinach & Chicken Soup
1 whole chicken
1/2 green onion, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 - 1 package frozen spinach, thawed & with the water squeezed out
1 tablespoon garlic powder (optional)
1 teaspoon soy sauce (optional)
3-4 drops hot sauce (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Rinse chicken and put it in the crockpot. Cover with water and cook on high 4 to 6 hours, or until the meat is falling off the bone. Remove chicken from crockpot and bone, removing skin and all bones and icky stuff. Be sure to check through the remaining broth for small bones. Replace boned chicken in the crockpot and add all remaining ingredients. Stir to blend, then continue cooking on high until vegetables are tender.
Ladle into bowls.
