Come the middle of winter, when the farmers market doesn't boast anywhere near the bounty of the summer months, it's easy to feel defeated. All isn't lost though. There's still one leafy vegetable in the small pool of February produce that's making up happy — cabbage!
From simple slaws and salads, to soup, stir-fry, and thick roasted wedges, here are 10 recipes to help you make the most of your cabbage bounty.
Cabbage is so versatile. It cooks relatively quickly and works in so many dishes, from Asian stir-fries to tuna salad. If you only think of it as a St. Patrick's Day side dish, you're missing out.
Salad, Slaw & Soup
- Roasted Cabbage Slaw with Hazelnuts & Lemon
- Crunchy Cabbage & Ramen Noodle Salad
- Apple Cabbage Salad with Brown Sugar Cider Vinaigrette
- Crisp Tuna-Cabbage Salad
- Hot and Sour Mushroom, Cabbage, and Rice Soup
Don't stop with slaws and salads, though. Cabbage has a place at the head of the table. Use it to change up your curries and stir-fry. Or, roasted it with thick slices of bacon.
