Sukkot, a harvest holiday, and Simchat Torah, which concludes the annual Torah reading cycle, both feature stuffed cabbage rolls. Why? On Sukkot, as we bring in bounty from the fields, we consider ourselves “stuffed” or “wrapped” in God’s blessings. And because Simchat Torah centers on the Torah, people eat foods that resemble, you guessed it, a rolled Torah scroll.

No matter how you roll (pun intended!), these savory pouches are quintessential comfort food—try one of these 13 unique varieties this fall.
