  • In a large cooking pan, melt the butter, add the flour, and cook on a low flame, constantly incorporating the flour into the butter. Slowly, fold in the milk, and continuously keep whisking it into the flour. 
  • This must be done on a low flame, and keep working on incorporating the milk and flour into a smooth paste.
  • Add the cheese, salt and pepper, and cook for 5-7 minutes.
  • Once it is cooked, add the mushroom broth, the baby spinach, and simmer on a low flame for 2-3 minutes, making sure all the ingredients are smoothly blended together.


  • Cut the cabbage in 4 quarters. (Keep the topknot of the cabbage intact in all 4 quarters; this will keep the cabbage leaves together).

  • Place the cabbage in a deep dish serving plate, and generously pour the white sauce over the cabbage.
  • Garnish with grated cheese.
