Cabbage Bowl

Cabbage Bowl {Grain, Gluten & Dairy Free}

Cabbage is not the most glamorized vegetable in the United States. However, cabbage is one of the most widely consumed vegetables world wide. And more than that — it is PACKED with nutrition! Cabbage is part of the Cruciferous Family. Eating healthy never tasted so good with this super easy and nutrient dense cabbage bowl!

I adapted this cabbage bowl recipe from something my mother used to make growing up. If you don’t like cabbage, you definitely need to try this recipe before you plug your nose. At my house, we rarely have cabbage bowl leftovers because nobody can stop this meal, even my kids!

Useful Tools For This Cabbage Bowl

My favorite tool to make this recipe is my mother’s Swissmar Borner mandoline from the 70’s. She swore it was the best tool in her kitchen. I was shocked to see that Cook’s Illustrated from America’s Test Kitchen agreed in their review of the same apparatus. I was able to purchase mine on Amazon

Another great product I like to order on Amazon is Organic Botanicals Stevia Liquid because it is free of erythritol. Dr. Axe explains erythritol well in this article.
