I slice up my cabbage and then I throw it into a super hot wok with bok choy, freshly ground pepper, a little bit of olive oil, baby spinach and a finely slivered jalapeno! And voila! After a few minutes you have stir-fry! Add some jasmine rice and throw in some chopped, grilled-til-it's-crispy pork, yum!

When you really live, there's just no time to be bored.

That sounds really interesting and wouldn't make the kitchen hot in the summer.

I am new to this team, but I couldn't resist this topic! I recently tried out GRILLED cabbage. You just cut a head into quarters, rub lightly with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and throw on the grill until it cooks through. Slice up, add a little more S&P and enjoy! Sounds so simple, but it is super delicious!

It's so good! I make a big batch and serve it as a side for dinner for a few days.

I put in under cold water so I can take off whole leaves at a time without breaking them. Then I set the leaves into hot water that was boiled then turned off. As soon as it is a little wilted, I take them out.

I fill the leaves with cooked TVP (textured vegetable protein) mixed with tomatoes, peppers, onions that are cooked.

The rolled cabbage leaves are placed seam side down in a baking dish that has a layer of tomato sauce in the bottom. Then I place some of the sauce on top.

Bake at 375 for 45 minutes and you have a great vegetarian treat!!

I love cabbage as well. I've done it with little olive oil and saute it until tender and add salt, pepper. I've also steamed it and have used it for a cabbage salad. You can also use it in wraps. You can do the same with red cabbage.

I love cabbage. I have stir fried it in a little olive oil, I then mix a one tablespoon of brown sugar, soy sauce and another one table spoon of olive oil. Pour on the stir fry and sprinkle sesame seed on. I would say any sauce you would like would work. emoticon

LOVE this topic. Cabbage is one of my favorite foods, but I don't make it enough.

I had a roommate from Poland and she used cabbage the we I use lettuce, so, salads for me are a switch up between different lettuces or shredded/chopped cabbage. She also simmered it in Italian salad dressing until it was soft but still had a bit of bite. She would drain it, so, the flavor was there but not a ton of empty calroies or anything.

I make slaw that is a vinegar base, not mayo, with lime juice and jalapenos. Zippy and a kick of spice. You can find the recipe on from Cooking Light.

I boil it and then eat it with salt, pepper, little grated parmesean cheese.

Love your recipe ideas!!!

Can I add that I love, love, love brussel sprouts? Roasted with a bit of bacon and apples and pears... oh my gosh. Or just roasted by themselves. A bit of olive oil, salt, pepper... heaven on a plate. My husband swore he hated them, and now, this is a holiday staple. We've convinced our families, too!!! I make them pretty often. YUM! And they are cheap, cheap, cheap at our famrer's market, too.

One of my goals is to not eat in the car. This means packing my lunch to avoid fast food when I am running errands. The other day I had a hair appointment during the noon hour, and all I had handy was some cabbage and pre cooked shrimp. I took a few large cabbage leaves and steamed them for about 1 minute so they were pliable but still crunchy. I filled the center with the shrimp and some leftover rice, then rolled them up, stuck them in a ziploc, grabbed a Granny Smith apple and ran out the door. I ate them while I was under the dryer and it was the best lunch I'd had all week!

I do something similar. I dice cabbage, had fire roasted crushed tomatoes and sauted onions. Then I also add some diced sauteed peppers sometimes and always chopped cilantro. Then I serve over rice.

Since cabbage is so low in calories, I've been trying to incorporate it more into my life.

An easy thing I do with it, I chop up a head of cabbage. I put the cabbage & 2 cans of diced tomatoes into a large pot & cook it until its nice & soft, a good 1/2 hour to hour. Any kind of spices can be added, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic.
