Separate 8 large cabbage leaves. Remove spines and wash leaves, then blanch them in boiling water 1 to 2 minutes. Cool in cold water and place on a cloth.

In a saucepan, sauté vegetables in butter and olive oil for 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and tarragon, season with salt and pepper.

Spread leaves on an oiled pastry sheet. Top with sautéed vegetables and Canadian Canadian-Swiss. Roll up and shape into baby cabbages and place in oven preheated to 350 °F (180 °C) for 5 to 6 minutes.
