Cabbage is a low calorie nutritious cruciferous vegetable available in all grocery stores. They are always available and are easy to prepare! Some people may claim that they don’t like vegetables or cabbages in particular. But maybe they just haven’t tasted a good recipe yet!

And if you just love cabbage the way I do, you will always want your family and friends to have a taste of it! They may resist your attempts to make them eat cabbage, but don’t get discouraged. Be persistent! You can eventually show them how wonderful cabbages can be!

5 tips to make anyone love cabbage

Cabbage can be cooked in many different ways. Some people may not be familiar with them as they may have been exposed to instant meals and quick cook processed foods. A good tasting cabbage recipe can switch them to appreciate and have more greens in their lives! Here are some tasty tips on how you may like to prepare cabbage, to persuade your friends!


#1 Cabbage Chips

Potato chips are a thing of the past. The kitchen tools available today have permitted us to make everything crispy! Cook a large batch of air fried cabbage chips over a movie marathon and they will surely beg for more! They might not even notice that you are serving them cabbage!
Prepare some extra in case you sweep them off their feet with this incredible healthy snack. Did I mention it’s low in calories? Eat to your heart’s content and never worry about gaining weight. If you find plain chips a little boring, have your favorite dip ready.


#2 Slaw

Slaw is an age old recipe that is always served at dinner tables and parties. It goes well with almost anything! They are a hit with barbecues and steaks. In fact, I think it makes them better!

#3 Cabbage and Sausage

Nothing beats a nutritious and hearty bowl of cabbage and sausage, especially during cold nights! It’s packed with proteins, vitamins, minerals, and a good amount of dietary fiber. Your buff friends will be delighted with this recipe. This is an enjoyable meal that can help them bulk up without gaining a few extra pounds.

#4 Cabbage Pickles

Are you getting tired of eating too much instant and processed food? Some pickled cabbage can give you and your friends a breath of fresh air. They are easy to make, and they last a long time in the fridge! Make some so that you have a cabbage side dish available to offer whenever a friend comes over.

They are also a great combination with kebabs and grilled meat! Try it, and you will fall in love with it even more! Add some jalapeño to make it a little spicy and punchy.


#5 Cabbage Steak

Steaks can be green too! Maybe some people have a pushback with a vegetable steak. But once they get a taste of it, they would realize that veggies can be awesome too! These slices of goodness can be easily prepared at home. It would take only as much as 20 minutes to prepare! The trick to saving time is preheating your oven while preparing everything else!
Slice your cabbages vertically into about a third of an inch in thickness. Season and bake for 15 minutes! Add some more time if you want to char the outside and soften the middle. Chow like the way you would eat an Angus steak! (of course, without the guilt and the expensive bill!)


Final Words

I don’t know why anyone would ever have an ill feeling towards cabbage. It is heartbreaking!
These recipes can move them to switch their meat with cabbage! Or if that’s too much, they may mix cabbage to their selection!

Cabbage chips can easily fool your friends taste buds! It’s just like eating potato chips, but healthier! Slaws can give them that familiar, homey, and nostalgic taste. I’m sure that they have had this during one of their family dinners!

Pickles can introduce a new flavor to them! They should always be available in your fridge! For the ultimate, make them try cabbage steaks.

      Oh, lucky you! I tried that once but my garden is too small to plant enough cabbage to be worthwhile 🙂

    I admit that I did not learn to like cabbage until I was an adult. Now I love it and am always looking for new ways to cook it. I had never thought about cabbage chips so I’ll have to give that a try!

    My favourite way to eat cabbage is steamed, with a little vinegar, butter, & salt.
    Vegetable steak? THAT would not fly in this beef loving household, I’m afraid. In fact, Mr Shoes asked me one day why they (the food network) keeps using the word ‘steak’ pre-face by some type of vegetable ~ he actually got a little ‘steamed up’ over it. 😉

      I love cabbage in any shape of form. Just had some, traditional to my home country, stuffed cured cabbage leaves with smoked ribs today as a matter of fact.
      P.S. You tell Mr. Shoes the world is out to get him, lol. Typically, meat, fish or vegetable cut across into thick slices are referred to as steak. Ever heard of tuna steak? 😉
