5 Creative Cabbage Recipes

We’ve all been there – you go to buy cabbage for one recipe (and it is massive), and then it sits in your fridge for a week. This post will go over 5 unique cabbage recipes to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck with each cabbage purchase!

Why we love Cabbage:

  • It is great value, cabbages are quite cheap for how many meals you can squeeze out of them
  • They keep for a while! Before cutting cabbage can last up to a month in your crisper drawer! After cutting a half or quarter head can last for about 3 days
  • They grow locally in BC and Alberta
  • It is rich in nutrients such as vitamins C, A, and E!

How to use Cabbage:
