    Directions

    01

    Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, ginger, and garlic; heat until mushrooms have softened, about 3 minutes.

    02

    Place mushroom mixture in large bowl. Add chicken, rice, carrot, green onion, cilantro, soy sauce or tamari, chili sauce or chili flakes, and 2 tsp (10 mL) rice vinegar to bowl and gently mix together.

    03

    Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).

    04

    Slice off tough white stems of cabbage leaves and use sharp knife to carefully fillet off thick ribs running along backsides of leaves.

    05

    Lay a cabbage leaf on work surface with stem end closest to you. Place heaping 1/4 cup (60 mL) chicken mixture near stem end, fold stem end over filling, fold both sides toward the middle, and roll leaf up tightly around filling. Place roll, seam side down, on large baking dish. Repeat rolling cabbage leaves until all filling is used.

    06

    In small bowl, stir together hoisin sauce and remaining 2 tsp (10 mL) vinegar. Brush sauce over rolls. Bake until chicken is cooked through, about 30 minutes. To test for doneness, carefully unwrap a bundle and check that chicken is cooked through.

    07

    Remove from oven and serve garnished with sesame seeds.
