You can use part of a head for vegetable soup. I love cabbage in Chinese stir fries and Pad Thai.
If you want to use up a whole head and have a quart sized mason jar, you can ferment your own sauerkraut easily enough. All it takes is the cabbage, some fennel seed, and sea salt. The cabbage will create it's own pro-biotics in about 4-6 days on your counter and then the sauerkraut will keep in the fridge for months in the jar on a basement shelf for a few months. This is a live sauerkraut so you would not cook it or you would kill the probiotics but you could cook it in a dish if you wanted to later. It would still taste good. Cultures originally made sauerkraut this way for storage reasons. I can send you a link to a video if you are interested. I am eating fermented veggies and sauerkraut now. Boy are they delicious. Plus I don't have to take pro-biotic pills, which are expensive, because I make my own.
