I simply like cabbage in small pieces, on the order of coleslaw, mix with Marzetti coleslaw dressing with paprika on top.

I made a lasagna type dish using cabbage. I cored it and put it in a pot with some water and let it steam. As the leaves softened I could remove them and used them as the noodles. I also used thin sliced eggplant along with a ricotta cheese mixture and marinara sauce. It was quite good.

I cut it into wedges, add a little salt and pepper and sprinkle olive oil over top. Place under broiler and let it stay just until tender. Delicious!

low carb, so my favorite cabbage pancakes are out! but i do like it shredded and sauteed with mustard seeds, onion, salt/pepper, and a little lemon juice- sort of a sweet and sour thing going on. delicious! coleslaw is usually pretty low carb as well. you can make cabbage fritters as well- you would need to bind with egg and something like almond or garbanzo bean flour and then you could fry them off (or bake them perhaps).

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

This is nothing new, but I call it clean the refrigerator cabbage soup. . .

Ingredients:
• 1.5 T Olive Oil
• 1 t Salt (use to taste)
• 1 c Chopped Sweet Yellow Onion
• 1 c Chopped Carrots
• 1 c Chopped Celery
• 1 T Minced Garlic (from a jar)
• 1 Large Head of Cabbage (I used Napa), Chopped
• 1 Chopped Large Bell Pepper (Red, Yellow, Orange or Green)
• 1 Fresh Box/Pkg (8 oz) Mushrooms – Chopped
• 1 Can (14.5 oz) Petite Diced Tomatoes
• ½ Bag (16 oz) Frozen Cauliflower Florets – Chopped when thawed
• 1 C Fresh (or Frozen) Green Beans – Cut to bite-size
• 1 T Italian Seasoning
• 1 t Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
• 1 Qt. (32 oz) Vegetable Broth

Preparation:
1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat
2. Add to this pot, the chopped onion, carrots and celery and lightly salt
3. Add to this pot, the minced garlic and lower heat to continue to sauté and stir these vegetables to form a mirepoix (softened, lightly browned, rich in flavor)
4. While these fragrant vegetables sauté, chop the remaining fresh vegetables and add to the pot
5. Add the canned tomatoes to the pot first, on top of all the other veggies
6. Once all the vegetables have been added, sprinkle the seasonings (Italian Seasoning & Crushed Red Pepper Flakes) to the pot
7. Finally, pour the Vegetable Broth over the vegetable mixture, stir thoroughly, and cook on low heat slowly to reduce the volume of liquid by ½ to 1-inch depth (this step intensifies flavor, tenderizes and fully cooks the vegetables).
8. Allow to cool, refrigerate packaged as convenient (makes at least 10 servings)

I make this about every 8 weeks and it freezes well!

Enjoy.

Lemon-garlic sauteed cabbage. Easy, delicious, makes a great side dish for dinner. Sautee some cabbage in olive oil, then add minced garlic, lemon juice, and a dash of salt and pepper. I love putting this on some mashed potatoes next to some chicken breast or meatloaf.

As you hold on... as long as you do what's in your heart... I believe you can do the right thing.

At the grocery store today, I heard some other shoppers say: Buy cabbage and steam it tonight for dinner.

We make a one skillet recipe with cabbage, onion, and ground beef or turkey. Caraway seed is a good addition or spice it up with red pepper flakes. You can pretty much flavor to your liking. Cook meat first, put to side of skillet or on another plate, then cook onions and cabbage. Mix meat and cabbage/onion and season to taste.

Another good one is cabbage and apple soup. Google for recipes.

Homemade coleslaw with a non-mayonnaise based dressing.

I love cabbage

Once the cabbage is cored and any bad outer leaves removed, I cut it (either into "ribbon sized" so it can be a low-carb butter noodle substitute, or in wedges as a go-along side dish to any protein).

Next, I take a pan and put in bone broth and put in a bit to cover the bottom of the pan. Next I place in the "noodle" size or wedges of cabbage. Next I add celery salt and butter over the top. If carb counts for the day allow it, I also add some thinly sliced onions.

I cover this and steam it until done, adding a bit more bone broth at a time, if needed so the pan doesn't go dry. It will burn if it is allowed to go dry but its best flavor is just before that stage.

I serve this with what ever protein sounds good or is on hand. Beef cut into "tips" and gravy (also made from bone broth), fried hot-dogs, turkey cutlets, hamburger patty, etc.


Also like making it as cole slaw. I do a sugar free version using stevia.

Pintrest also tells me I've saved 140+ cabbage recipes on my "Veggies" board. Here is the link. I don't know if any/all are low carb but I generally do eat low carb and save low carb recipes.

Have you found any other low-carb recipes you enjoy?

Hi there!

The suggestions in this thread are not necessarily low carb, but can easily be made as such: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/messageboard.a

Sauerkraut is another cabbage option, and can be great mixed with cream cheese and bacon / ham for stuffed anything (I use with stuffed mushrooms, or chicken breasts, or pork loin chops).

Keep an open mind and you'll surely find a few different preparations for this awesomely versatile veggie that you will love. Have fun!

I don't usually buy cabbage, but I need something new.
Does anyone have a low-carb recipe using cabbage?
