I'm preparing to make a pot of cabbage soup to freeze for the winter months. However, it only calls for half a cabbage -- and that makes plenty!

Anyone got good cabbage recipes to share?

Cabbage is good in stir-fry.  Or, you could make some coleslaw.  My favorite thing to do with cabbage is to have it with a pork roast in the crock pot.  Cook your pork roast  on low in the CP, along with some carrots, onions, and potatoes, then about 30 minutes before you want to serve dinner, add sliced cabbage to the top of the CP and cover, turn on high, and let it steam.  It's very good with the gravy that the pork roast makes.

you can use it as a veggie with your dinner.  Cut it up in whatever size you like, and add some butter to a frying pan, a little salt and pepper. yummo

You can make an "ASIAN SLAW."  Chop up the cabbage (about 1/4 inch-wide strips)  Shred some carrots, and add chopped up green onions and celery.  Break up a package of  ramon noodles and add it to the slaw mixture.  Toss it all with you favorite asian dressing or make a dressing

Dressing:  Mix 1/2 c. veggie oil, 2T. toasted sesame oil, 2 T. rice vinegar, 1 t. red peper flakes, 1 t. sugar and the flavor packet from the noodles.

Refrigerate the slaw for at least 1 hour.  Serve as a side dish.  For a main dish add shredded chicken or a can of tuna.

Happy eating and wishing you all the best!

well if you dont have any black-eyed peas and cornbread to it with it----   I love to eat my cooked cabbage with cheese dip. You know the velveeta cheese and Roi tel tomato dip. Just pour that cheese over it like you would cheese over broccoli,
