Cabbage recipes?

I got a beautiful head of cabbage in my CSA share this week, but I have no idea what to do with it. Roast it? I saw an Ina recipe to sauté it, so I may try that but wondering what other success you have had?

  1. Marcella Hazan; not what we would call a soup, though.

    Jamie Oliver pasta dish; I use pancetta:


    More ideas here:

    1. It's really good just roasted with a little oil and salt. You could drizzle some red wine vinegar on it when it's done if you want.

        When roasting i slice slim wedges with a bit of the core to keep it together- otherwise the individual leaves can burn. Just flip halfway thru

        1. re: Ttrockwood

          I've done it that way and also cut into about 8 thicker wedges (yes, with the core attached). I did the flip halfway on the wedges as well. I liked how I got some nice crispy outer leaves and soft insides...

            Adding another recipe idea- ribolitta! I made this a while back and loved it- even better the next day

      2. I love it shredded in stir fries but my absolute favorite way is a riff on stuffed cabbage. I really like the Barefoot Contessa stuffed cabbage recipe but most of the time am too lazy to stuff individual little cabbage rolls. I basically make the original recipe but instead of stuffing the cabbage, I shred it, saute it to wilt, simmer it in the tomato sauce with cooked ground meat, then serve over rice.

        Original recipe:

          1. We just braise it, it's delicious.

            Slice an onion thinly, and sauté in a pan w a cover in some hot oil or butter. Add the thinly sliced cabbage, some salt. Cover and let wilt down a bit. Then add some apple cider or chicken stock, about a cup, and let simmer. You can keep it covered or not, but just cook down until it's soft. Becomes velvety and sweet, delicious with pork chops or pork roast. We just had it this weekend.

              Throw in some bacon, onions, vinegar and hot sauce and this is how we do it as well.

                Yes, it's great sprinkled with apple cider vinegar & garnished with crispy bacon bits, yum!
