What To Do With Random Cabbages In Your Fridge (AKA Cabbage Recipes)

I’ve had this cabbage in my fridge for almost a month now, and we really, really need to eat it before it goes bad because I HATE throwing away food.

The problem is, I don’t really like cabbage. I’ve never cooked cabbage before. I don’t know what to DO with cabbage!

WHY do we have this cabbage in the first place, you ask? Well, I used to be part of a totally awesome local CSA in Oregon that send me all kinds of delicious produce. Yum!

I don't really like cabbage. I've never cooked cabbage before. I don't know what to DO with cabbage! So, here are some tasty looking cabbage recipes to try!

Over here in Texas we have Walmart. Ugh. (No offense if you love Walmart, but it’s totally overwhelming to me, and they try to bag every single item in it’s own individual plastic bag. Also, there is this nice local grocery chain, but the location near to my house is GHETTO. Seriously. It looks like a Vons from 1995.)

So, when I heard about a produce delivery box I JUMPED FOR JOY. Then I signed up and, tada! Thus we have cabbage.

Cabbage Recipes You (And I!) Should Try

Here are some cabbage recipes that don’t look half bad. Perhaps I can convince my husband to make them so I don’t have to cook.

(Yup, homesteader here who has a black thumb AND hates cooking. But I love chickens!)

Egg Roll Bowl

Eggs rolls are delicious. Weight gain from too many carbs, not so delicious. So, maybe this egg roll in a bowl from Delish will be the winning cabbage recipe for this week!

Peanut, Carrot, Cabbage Slaw

Coleslaw is good. Coleslaw uses cabbage. I’m also a huge fan of peanut butter AND peanuts are on sale at Costco this month. Should I make slaw from The Kitchn?  If it’s tasty enough, that’s a great reason to start growing your OWN cabbages.  Oh yeah.

Parmesan Garlic Cabbage

Real Housemoms promises even cabbage haters will like this recipe, so it has to be good. Right? RIGHT!?! I don’t think you can go wrong with Parmesan OR garlic. It seems pretty easy too, perfect for a reluctant cook like me.

I've made Cabbage with Thai Peanut Butter sauce, souerkraut, cabbage soup, lots of cabbage slaw recipes and cabbage rolls Romanian style. P.s. I'm used to live in San Antonio. I'm still near by and would love to chat via email in regards to gardening.

I oven roast them. Peel off the old leaves. Core it. Wash it well. Fill the place you cored with butter mixed with 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp black pepper. Wrap the whole head in foil. Place it in a baking dish. Bake 350 degrees for approximately 20 minute per lb. Remove it from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove the foil and cut the head into wedged serving size. Pour the liquid over each wedge and serve.
