Sprinkle with salt and pepper. When your cabbage is ready, delicately remove the largest leaves. Chop the rest and put it inside the pan with the rest of the veggies. Fill each cabbage leaf with 2 tbsp of the vegetable mixture and add some sour cream to taste (you can also add some precooked rice). Make at least 8 rolls. Wash your Instant Pot and pour in vegetable broth. Place the steaming basket and fill it with your rolls. Cook at high pressure for 3 minutes. Let the steam release naturally and serve.
