Cabbage recipes?

We came home yesterday from a St. Patrick's Day parade with several heads of cabbage for our two-person household. Yes, in New Orleans, they throw vegetables, especially cabbage, at this parade. My recipes for this veggie are pretty much limited to coleslaw and corned beef and cabbage. Does anyone have any great recipes for our catches? I would hate to see this go to waste.

  1. Stuffed cabbage? Time consuming but so worth it! You can even stuff the leaves and put them in the crock pot to cook. Stuffing of your choice . . . I usually use lean ground beef mixed with a bit of italian sausage. Top it with a tomatoey sauce or chopped tomatoes and seasoning and you're good to go! Also fried cabbage with/in bacon is delicious!

    1. you can look through the results of this search for tons of ideas...many, many threads about cabbage!

      1. Kapustash-Hungarian Cabbage and Noodles...........

        Shread one head cabbage
        Saute until translucent (andvery soft) in a very little bit of oil and a few tablespoons of butter.
        Season with salt and pepper, toss with one pound cooked wide egg noodles.

        This is one of my wife and kids favorite suppers. I like to toss in pieces of leftover pot roast, roast beef, or roast chicken.

            Sounds like your grandma was called OMA, and was from the Austrian side of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

            I had one of those as well. Spaetzel is my favorite starch

        2. I just finished using up a 1/2 head of roughly shredded cabbage, 2 medium sliced onions and 4 carrots, cut into 1/4 inch slices on the diagonal. I cooked them over high heat until softened, in a cast iron skillet, added (off the heat) some salt, red pepper flakes, srichacha sauce, soy sauce and rice wine vinegar. Yum. Don't stint on the vinegar.

          1. Marcella Hazan's Minestrone. Delicious and uses a good amount of cabbage.
