Cabbage is wonderful! It has many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is a great source of fiber. It’s also on sale right now because cabbage is in season in November and December. Produce is always cheaper when it’s in season. Now is the time to try these cheap and tasty recipes that include lots of cabbage.
Delicious Cabbage Recipes
Fried Irish Cabbage With Bacon
This recipe is as simple as it sounds. I found this one at AllRecipes.com. All you need is one 12 ounce package of bacon, one small head of cabbage, and some ground black pepper. Save some of the bacon drippings after the bacon is cooked to saute the cabbage in. This recipe makes six servings.
Creamy Cabbage With Potatoes
Serious Eats has an inexpensive recipe that was inspired by Colcannon, an Irish cabbage and potato dish. The main ingredients include an onion, a pound of cabbage, 2 pounds of potatoes and a head of lettuce. You can substitute the potatoes with mashed potatoes if you want to use up leftovers. Add in a few more “pantry items”, and you have a tasty meal that serves 4 and costs less than $7.00.
Cabbage and Noodles
This recipe came from Mr. Food. It is a side dish that will serve six people. This super simple recipe includes bowtie noodles, chopped onion, and plenty of shredded cabbage. First, make the noodles (according to the directions on the package). Next, saute the onions and cabbage in a skillet until the cabbage is soft and light brown. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, and the noodles.
Italian Peasant Soup with Cabbage, Beans, & Cheese
Here is a healthy, hearty, cabbage recipe from Eating Well. It serves 8 people, and gives them each 1 cup of soup. The main ingredients you need for this recipe include 4 cups of Savoy cabbage, a can of reduced sodium chicken broth, some fontina cheese (or Parmesan cheese) a medium onion, beans, and some thick slices of day old whole wheat country bread. This recipe will take about 40 minutes. What could be better than hot soup on a cold day?
Some people have had a less than appetizing first taste of cabbage when they were children. If that is you, then it is time to give cabbage another try! Cabbage is good for you, it pairs nicely with so many other foods, and it is a very inexpensive ingredient to build a meal around. Even the picky eaters in your family will be tempted to try Fried Irish Cabbage with Bacon!
