16 delicious, healthy cabbage recipes

Cabbage is cheap. Like $.35 a pound cheap. Like I just got a really nice size cabbage for $1.25 cheap which will be used for many many meals. I pretty much constantly have cabbage in my house but I always sit there and stare and think “What am I going to make with this?” But cabbage can be treated in so many different ways! It’s amazing I ever get stuck. So here’s a list of some amazing cabbage recipes that I love. Whether you want it cooked, slawed, saladed, or just used as a crunch, there’s something for everything.

Roasted Cabbage

Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

Amish Ground Beef and Cabbage Skillet

amish-skilletThis is just a standby recipe for me now. It’s so easy and quick and it’s all in one pan so clean up is simple. Plus, it’s just absolutely delicious and requires very few ingredients. I tend to toss a bunch of spices in mine so don’t be afraid to pump up the flavor here.


Cabbage Mushroom Stir fry

Cabbage Fried Rice
