5 Easy Ways To Use Up Cabbage (VIDEO)

If you got a leftover half head of cabbage after perhaps making corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s Days, no worries! I have 5 ideas that Serena and I often use when we have extra cabbage on hand (and I even buy an extra head specifically for these recipes.)

1) Make a Wedge Salad
Serena’s invention and my favorite way to enjoy leftover cabbage! Roasted cabbage wedges replace the traditional iceberg lettuce in this Roasted Cabbage Wedge Salad (via our guest post for Linsday @ The Lean Green Bean.)

2) Roast Your Cole Slaw
As with all veggies, roasting make cabbage sweet and caramelized. Roasted up your cabbage slaw (throw in some shredded carrots, too) and use it in place of your raw cabbage in your favorite slaw recipe. Or use in tacos or in fried rice (recipe below.)

3) Shred and Add to Soup
Give canned soup an extra punch of nutrients by adding in a cup or so of shredded cabbage and heat. Or try this quick Cabbage Soup with Asian Dumplings.

4) Mix Into Pasta
Sauteed with onions, shredded cabbage almost “melts’ down into a sauce. Toss with pasta and Parmesan cheese for an easy but hearty dish.

5) Add to Fried Rice
This is my other go-to, on-the-fly, quick dinner recipe. I use Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice and toss in shredded cabbage with carrots, eggs and soy sauce—->Cabbage Carrot Fried Rice.
