Really? You don't eat cabbage?

Use the cabbage to make coleslaw. Great green food for tomorrow. :-)

I put it in salads. Cabbage is yummy.

I throw it in a skillet with lots of different things, it really takes on other flavors well. Fried cabbage with a little butter and salt and pepper is really good. I chop it up and throw it in the food processor with my homemade salsa. It also goes good boiled with all the cheap corned beef this month (and we LOVE corned beef brisket). Make coleslaw for leftover corned beef sandwiches too.

I just saved this recipe to try -

1/2 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise or salad dressing
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 medium head cabbage, finely shredded or chopped (4 cups)
1 small carrot, shredded (1/2 cup)
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)

I shread it and cook it with hamburger and then put it in sloppy joes or spagetti. No one ever knows. My favorite is cabbage cooked with bacon. Cook the bacon, take it out of the pan and then cook the cabbage with the bacon grease and then add the bacon again. Not the healthiest but it sure is good!

Carol said...

Sheena is right. Cabbage is great in the skillet. You just take some chopped cabbage, plus whatever leftovers you have in the fridge, cook it up in a skillet and roll it up in a tortilla. It's how we get through little league season, because tortillas travel well to ball games, which always start exactly at dinner time.

I like to fry cabbage in a bit of olive oil and butter then add sliced onions. Don't forget the salt and pepper and some garlic powder. Cook on med heat until cabbage is wilted (it will wilt down to about 1/2 of the original size) then turn up the heat a bit to get a nice browning. Yummy we have it a couple times a month here.

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound so rude. I was just surprised because cabbage is often one of the cheapest veggies, especially in winter. We eat it all kinds of ways. You can saute it in butter, salt, pepper, and lemon juice which is fine on its own, or you can then add some egg noodles and poppy seeds and maybe a little white wine and you have a great side dish. It's also great as a basic stir-fry veggies, with almost any kind of Asian sauce you want on it, and of course, it's usually the main veg in egg rolls. You can also make cole slaw, of course, and the topping for fish tacos (I mix cabbage, mayonnaise, and my home-canned corn relish for a quick, very easy and healthy Mexican-ish side dish or topping for tacos). Cabbage rolls are good, although a little more time-consuming than I'm usually willing to do. You can also make cabbage pie, which is sauteed cabbage and other things topped with a biscuit-sort of dough. If you want a recipe for that, I can give you one. That's especially good with bacon in it, perhaps some of the cheap Oscar Meyer bacon this week. We also chop it up and add it to ramen or any kind of instant noodles, since it can cook in the same time as the noodles and adds a least a little something healthful to them. I could go on and on...we almost always have cabbage in our crisper.

Cathy said...

Julie - I laughed when I read your first comment! I didn't think you were rude at all!

I love all these ideas and recipes! I have never purchased cabbage in my married life! So I think I should give it a try! Crossing fingers that my family will like it!

Thanks everyone!

One way my mom got us to eat cabbage as kids was in Cabbage and Cheese Soup...has carrots, onion, cabbage, potatoes, all in a thick creamy cheesy base... and whatever I don't use, I chop up and freeze till I make it again (probably would only work to freeze it as long as you planned on cooking the tar out of it. May not be good to freeze and then try to use in stir-fry, I've never tried though. I would think it would loose the ideal "tender-crisp" stir-fry texture:)---anyway
My kids love cabbage cheese soup and ask for it by request sometimes :)

Rachel said...

sorry, I just realized that comment didn't make much sense, I was jabbering on about freezing the cabbage---not the soup...sorry :)

Julie said...

Oh, I make a beef-and-vegetable soup with cabbage, too, and a tomato base. It's one of my favorite soups.

I do a lot of canning in the summers, too, and I use cabbage for some things then (chowchow and homemade sauerkraut, both of which are seriously delicious) but I grow the cabbage for those rather than buy it.

Just wanted to let you know that at Fred Meyer in Meridian today they had Challenge butter 2/$4 (coupon from escb) and a 75 cent off blinkie! Also they had a blinkie machine for the kraft cheese. :)
