12 Healthy Cabbage Recipes

03.04.15 by Jackie

Cabbage is good for you so why not eat it up! It's also inexpensive, packed with flavor and easy to prepare. Whether it's slow baked, sautéed, roasted, stuffed or shredded, I'm sure you'll find some inspiration into the list of these 12 trusted cabbage recipes I've gathered for you. 

I just bought 1 head of Chinese cabbage and a red one and I'm ready to get fit and pretty for our next summer vacation. I have 12 weeks until our family getaway to Cancun, Mexico (we first spent our 5th wedding anniversary there). Controlling your diet can be fun too; this doesn't mean food should taste bland without great texture. I'm excited to create more nutritious dishes with the humble cabbage!

Balsamic-Braised Red Cabbage Recipe Recipe

I love red cabbage, and I find that some of the best product is available around this time of the year. Its deep ruby color is so appealing. It's very inexpensive and it lasts for a long time. You can either braise, boil, pickle or even purée it.

This evening, I shredded the cabbage and braised it with a balsamic reduction and peanut butter. The result is a lightly sweet and rich side dish. I topped it with shaved sweet Nabulsi cheese for a nice contrast in color.

If you haven’t already, take advantage of this beautiful vegetable at its peak quality. Your taste buds will thank you!

Chinese Cabbage and Lotus Salad Recipe Recipe

When writing my second cookbook, Banh Mi, which by the way is already available for preview and pre-order, I tried to share authentic and traditional recipes for Vietnamese sandwiches, condiments and sides. If you've ever tasted a bánh mì, you probably are familiar with the standard condiment of pickled carrots and daikon. It takes the place of cornichon-based pickles (tiny French gherkin pickles) found in Western sandwiches.

You can of course vary the ingredients to your liking, and in this recipe I prepared a modified version of the bánh mì condiment with shredded Chinese cabbage, pickled lotus and freshly-picked satsuma mandarins that baby Aria helped me gather from our garden --follow me on Twitter and Facebook to see more pictures-- (sadly it was our very last batch). With a few peanuts and a nice dressing, it makes a great salad. Though it isn't strictly speaking a traditional pickle, you could also use it in your own bánh mì sandwich. The flavors are mellow enough to let the meat or tofu of your choice shine.

Chinese Cabbage Salad Recipe

This salad course is simple and very easy. I shredded a head of Chinese cabbage and mixed it with pickled onions, Vietnamese mint and pickled garlic. The mint enhances the flavor of the cabbage and gives it a fresh taste.

The best part is that this type of gơi (Vietnamese pickled salad) can be done very quickly and it's very low in calories. I'm attending a yoga class today, and this salad will keep me in a Zen state of mind long after the class is over.

Red Cabbage and Bean Sprout Salad Recipe Recipe

I had leftover bean sprouts from a large pot of phở over the weekend, and I decided to make a salad with it. The color of the bean sprouts needed a little oomph, so I added shredded red cabbage. In addition to the red cabbage, I also used diced Fuji apples.

Given the Asian flair of the salad, I made a peanut, lime and condensed milk vinaigrette. This is a very quick and easy first course, which gave me some time to work on a delicious dessert to satisfy my husband's sweet tooth for Valentine’s Day.
