Cabbage for 9 Cents per Pound

One of our local chain groceries is selling cabbage for 9 cents per pound this week. I usually stay organic, but cabbage is listed on the "Clean Fifteen", and 9 cents is super-cheap! I plan to buy some (a lot) at lunchtime.

What's your fave cabbage recipe? We normally eat crack slaw, but sometimes I saute shredded cabbage, and eat it like pasta, with sauce and meatballs. If I know me, I'll probably come home with 50+ pounds of cabbage, so any ideas are more than welcome!

Thanks in advance!

Chow chow is another good use for cabbage - my recipe is on this board someplace, I can dig it up if you'd like it.

Cut it into wedges, salt and pepper, spritz with olive oil and roast it until it's browned.

I like to shed cabbage, add to SF lemon, lime or orange jello. Let chill, put on lettuce leaf & put a spoonful of mayo on top. Great salad that everyone will like.

Arthur Schwartz's "Smothered Cabbage". Essentially onion and cabbage sauteed in butter. Delish!

YUM! Thanks for the ideas...they are great! I went to the store at lunch yesterday, only to find out that they were out of cabbage, LOL! I did manage to pick up some pork rinds, though, so all was not lost. The store is getting a shipment today, so I will try, try again.

The cabbage in jello brings back Memories of my Mom. She always put a few shredded carrots in for color and a square of cream cheese on top, a dollop of mayo then put it on lettuce. Think I'll have to make some............ Ann

We love this. It's from one of Dana Carpender's books:

Sweet and Sour Cabbage

3 slices bacon
4 cups shredded cabbage
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 teaspoons sweetener

Cook the bacon in a large skillet until it is crisp. Remove and drain. Add the cabbage to the bacon grease and sauté until it is tender, but still a little crisp.

Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine the vinegar and sweetener. Add this to the cabbage, crumble in the bacon, and stir.

And this is one of buttoni's recipes. It doesn't use a lot of cabbage, but it is one of my favorite vegetable side dishes and everyone loves it.

Broccoli-Cabbage “Souffle”

2 c. broccoli, cut into big chunks, steamed or boiled until tender
1 c. chopped cabbage
2 oz. chopped onion
1 T. olive oil
½ c. drained, canned water chestnuts, sliced
2 jumbo eggs, beaten
Dash black pepper
¼ tsp. salt
4 T. Parmesan cheese, grated (optional, but included in stats below)

Steam or boil broccoli until just tender. Preheat oven to 350º. While that is cooking, heat the olive oil in non-stick skillet and saute cabbage and onion until wilted and tender. Remove from heat. Drain broccoli. Add all ingredients, veggies, eggs and seasonings to the bowl of a food processor (or blender), and process to a coarse chop. Pour into greased deep baking dish (I use a 7″ Corningware vegetable bowl for my souffles). Bake for about 20-30 minutes, just until it is dry in the center. Serve at once.

Cabbage sauteed in coconut oil has a silky mouthfeel. Cabbage and bratwurst has become a staple in my diet. It's also a good base for a thai stir fry with green curry sauce.

As it turns out, I only came home with about 10 pounds of cabbage. And a head cold. I ate a lot of cabbage soup (cabbage sauteed in bacon fat, chopped garlic, and hot pepper flakes in chicken bone broth). It was pretty good, from what I was able to taste, LOL.

Use the steamed cabbage leaves (al dente) for wraps. We prefer them to lettuce!

This is one of my favorites.

Mexican Coleslaw

Shredded cabbage – 3 cups
One bunch green onions, finely chopped, including some of the green tops
lime juice – 2-3 tbsp
olive oil – 2-3 tbsp
cumin – 1/4 tsp
cayenne pepper – a pinch
1 small chili or jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
Chopped fresh cilantro to taste

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded cabbage, green onions and cilantro.

2. In a smaller bowl or jar with tight fitting lid, whisk or shake the lime juice, olive oil, cumin, chili pepper and cayenne pepper until thoroughly combined.

3. Add dressing to coleslaw and toss well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.

Note: Allow coleslaw to marinate in the refrigerator for at least three hours, tossing occasionally.

All those recipes sound great!!! We eat a lot of cabbage and I'm really happy to see so many inventive recipes. Great thread!!

Also I'm green with envy, I usually have to pay $0.40 a pound.

Here's another one that I get asked to bring to BBQs all summer long.

Walnut and Ginger Slaw
SALAD
12 oz. white cabbage, shredded
4 oz. red cabbage, shredded
½ cup jicama, sliced (optional, but gives it extra crunch)
½ cup shelled walnuts, coarsely chopped

DRESSING
½ cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2/3 cup splenda
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
½ teaspoon ginger, freshly grated (or substitute ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg)

Mix cabbages, walnuts, and jicama in a large bowl. Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl until blended. Add dressing mixture to salad mixture, tossing to combine. Cover and chill for 2 hours before serving.

You might want to try Arthur Schwartz' "Smothered Cabbage", if you can handle the carbs from the onions. It is simple and delicious:

2T butter
1 medium onion thinly sliced (about 1C)
1lb. shredded cabbage

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat and saute onion till golden - about 8 minutes.

Add the cabbage and toss together to coat it lightly with the butter.

Cover the pot. reduce heat to low and let steam until just tender - about 8 to 10 minutes.

Note: You can cut the onion by half without too much loss of flavor.

My mother used to make something similar to this recipe, adding some raisins and sometimes some egg noodles (obviously I don't do that any more). If you are cooking for family members who do not eat low carb, you can try those variations with part of the recipe for them. Schwartz also has a noodle kugel variation for the high carb eaters.

Just wanted to report that I tried Buttoni's Spicy Indian Cabbage. It was awesome and worth tracking down those nigella seeds.
