12 Super Yummy Cabbage Recipes

by Stepfanie Romine, Staff Writer

Cabbage is an extremely versatile veggie that gets far less attention than it deserves! You can eat it raw or cooked. You can steam it, ferment it, stir-fry it, bake it, boil it, stuff it, saute it, or braise it. This cruciferous vegetable is nutritious and affordable, plus it's available year-round. Read on for a dozen recipes celebrating cabbage.

Cheesy Cabbage Casserole

This gratin pairs cabbage, carrot and onions with rich Swiss cheese in a creamy egg custard. Fresh parsley and Parmesan finish the dish.

Easy Cabbage and Zucchini

Cabbage and zucchini turn into a versatile side dish with a few aromatic additions. Cook this dish low and slow to allow the flavors to meld.

Classic Cabbage Vegetable Soup

We love cabbage soup--just not when it's the star of a fad diet. This light soup laced with tomatoes is the perfect start to any meal.

Terrific Turkey Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage rolls are a time-consuming dish, but thankfully this recipe usually yields enough for at least two meals. These savory rolls are packed with beef and turkey, plus a rich tomato sauce. Top with feta for an extra flavor boost!

Hot & Sweet Rainbow Slaw

Creamy cole slaw is a favorite cabbage recipe, but who needs all that mayo? This version uses Greek yogurt and a healthier mayo, plus a few other secret ingredients.

Crunchy Cabbage Ramen Noodle Salad

Crunchy ramen noodle salad elevates cole slaw to a whole new level. You'll love the vibrant colors and crisp texture.

Comforting Baked Cabbage and Onions

A lighter take on a Slavic favorite, this not-too-buttery cabbage and onion casserole is pure comfort food.

Quick Kimchi Fried Rice

Kimchi is like sauerkraut with a fiery kick, and it's a staple in Korean cuisine. Fried rice tempers the bite of the pickled cabbage in this quick dinner.

Super Simple Sausage & Sauerkraut

Sausage and sauerkraut are a match made in heaven--or Eastern Europe. We love this simple combo, especially when served over boiled potatoes to soak up all the juices.

The Best Baja Fish Tacos

Authentic tacos are simple and need little to dress them up. These Baja-style fish tacos are no exception. Crunchy cabbage, juicy tomatoes and crisp onions offer a nice contrast to the fresh fish.

Sweet 'n' Sour Chicken and Cabbage Soup

This recipe turns cabbage soup into a hearty meal. Lean chicken bulks it up while apple cider vinegar and brown sugar add depth to the dish.

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Casserole

For all the flavor of cabbage rolls with far less work, turn to the slow cooker. This version requires a third of the work on your end, with a tasty, slow-cooker dish that will be ready when you are.

I can't wait to try some of these recipes. When I have cabbage in the garden I am always looking for new recipes to use them up. However we do make our own sauerkraut which is so good.

I made this tonight using pepper jack cheese since I didn't have any Swiss. It was delicious. I will make it again. Thanks for the recipe.

I love my red cabbage salad. Baby kale, shredded red cabbage, carrots, grape tomatoes, cucumbers and diced honeycrisp apples tossed with a lemon vinaigrette. Delish!

I use cabbage regularly as the base of a soup, casseroles, stir fry and salads. Very economical for those on a budget, and tasty.

I eat cabbage often, in fact had some tonight, made homemade coleslaw, was a family hit!
I also added cranberries and small bits of nuts to it, something different.
I have discovered thanks to my daughter, that you can grill vegetables on a George Foreman grill using a little PAM and seasoning! I also use spinach quite often, I make a killer, vegetarian omelet with just eggs, a little cheese, 1/2 an avocado, and other veggies, like peppers and red onion, top with spinach leaves and add a little cheese on the top. Then serve with 1/2 English Muffin and enjoy!
