Stir Fry Cabbage

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!
