I freeze them cooked. What I do is let them cool, put them in plastic dishes I saved from mico-meals, vacuum-seal them and freeze. To prepare I let them defrost, take them out of the bag and dish, put them in a baking dish with more sauce and bake. You can also just take them out of the bag and reheat in the microwave if you are in a hurry.

No problem freezing them, though I do not guarantee that cabbage will taste particularly great afterwards. Though for me personally cabbage never tastes great so no big loss. I'd defrost before cooking though.

Cook the eggies and the sell walls are softened so that freezing doesn't degrade the quality of the thawed product. I suspect that the frozen veggies you purchase in a store have been blanched, or pre-cooked prior to freezing.
