5 Ways with Cabbage

Cabbage is a nutritious, affordable vegetable enjoyed since 1000 BC. It stores well in the fridge and can be used as a main dish, side dish or filler in recipes from around the globe. Make the most of your cabbage with these five ways to use any extras.

1. Add To Your Stir Fry

Any type of cabbage makes a great addition to a stir fry. Add it towards the end of cooking for a satisfying crunch. Replace the broccoli stalk with cabbage in this Speedy Beef Stir Fry.

2. Use As A Topping

Enjoy crunchy cabbage as a topping on tacos, sandwiches or power bowls. It’s also great in these Rice Paper Rolls. If your cabbage is missing its crunch, soak in ice cold water for 15 minutes.

3. Ferment Or Pickle

Make Sauerkraut or this Simple Kimchi recipe to ferment your cabbage. For a quicker alternative, substitute cabbage for lettuce in this Pickled Lettuce recipe from Bob Blumer.

4. Sauté To Maximize Flavour

Sauté chopped cabbage with various herbs and spices and add to meatloaf, perogies, dumplings, casseroles, curries, dahl, or this Versatile Lasagna.

5. Make A Soup

Add grated or cabbage pieces to your favourite soup or stew. Try it in this Tomato Bean Soup

The core of cabbage is edible too. It’s every bit as tasty, it just takes a little longer to cook. Use it like you would broccoli stalks.
