Favorite Cabbage ideas

Hi have quite a bit of cabbage- any favorite ways to prepare it besides slaw?

  1. I LOVE cooked cabbage. Simplest is to just saute it but if you have time, cook it low uintil it turns nutty and brown in a bit of butter. So delicious on pasta or risotto or by itself!
    Then it is great tossed with pasta and goes well with bacon and salty flavours.

    I also recently made a soup with cabbage, potatoes, carrots and onions, simmered for 90 mins and stirred in some fresh herbs and it was delicious.

      Add a little chorizo to that soup and you have a pretty authentic Basque soup.

    2. Stir fry- thinly sliced red cabbage, splash of canola oil, salt, white pepper, raisins soaked in a combo of orange/lemon juice. I also added a dash of cinnamon.

      1. Same here, I love cabbage soup or stir frying cabbage with some sausage. Easy to make lunches. Either that or make salads with cabbage.

        1. Curried cabbage
          Sauteed with bacon and caraway seeds
          Sauteed with pork and spring vegetables for eggroll filling
          Stuffed cabbage
          Hungarian cabbage soup
