Dana’s Stir Fry Cabbage

by Dana S on January 31, 2013

Cabbage is an often overlooked veggie. But at less than 50 cents per #, it is a wonderful, inexpensive option to add to your vegetable rotation. Cabbage is rich in fiber and vitamin C.

One of my favorite ways to prepare cabbage is to stir fry it with onions. Stir frying it allows it to slightly caramelize which really makes it yummy! This recipe is a very simple but delicious way to add more cabbage into your menu plan.

I served the cabbage with my Citrus Teriyaki Chicken over white rice. Enjoy!

For a FAST complete meal, stir fry diced potatoes (to make it even faster nuke them first, or use leftover baked potatoes) onions, shredded cabbage, and diced smoked sausage or kielbasa. YUMMY!

I don’t know where you shop, but I’ve NEVER bought green onions for 35 cents….

You can get fairly affordable produce from your local Asian supermarket. I’ve seen great prices for green onions and cabbage :)
