Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with cabbage. It is seriously such an underrated vegetable that serves so many purposes! You can use it in a ridiculous amount of dishes. It is always on my grocery list because it is so versatile. I think it deserves all the glory cauliflower and broccoli are getting these days. But then again, I wouldn’t want to start a veggie war. 

One of my absolute favorite things to do with it makes this incredible braised cabbage dish. It is so tasty! It combines shredded cabbage, onions, carrots, tomato paste, and butter. 

So what can you do/ make with braised cabbage?

You can eat it as is. On the side or like a salad. Seriously, it is so good.

Make my famous Braised Cabbage Piroshki. It’s the ultimate Russian street food.

Homemade egg rolls. This would make an incredible filling! 

Top your burgers with it. Instead of adding coleslaw into your sandwich/burger next time, try adding this braised cabbage.

Want to know my favorite part of this dish?

It comes together in less than 15 minutes, start to finish. After you chop and cut your vegetables, you saute everything in butter for only 10 minutes. I’m all about quick recipes that require little effort, and this is one of them.
