Frizzled Cabbage

Frizzled Cabbage – Easy & Delicious Side Dish

Frizzled Cabbage is super simple and super delicious. I just love the natural flavor this recipe brings out of the cabbage, plus it’s so quick to prepare.


It raises the lowly cabbage to something extraordinary!

This technique of sauteing brings out a wonderful sweetness you never knew existed in cabbage.

You can add different spices to this recipe: curry, caraway seeds, or hot pepper sauce are just suggestions. It’s also nice with slivered carrots. But try it plain first!

What a good recipe for us cabbage lovers!
