    Here's a host of cabbage recipies - and info that February 17th is world cabbage day

    Parboil it, then stuff with rice, toasted pine nuts and spring onion - braise this on top of stove with tight fitting lid (no oven) in vegetable stock.

    Hope this helps.

    Not sure all of those recipes are entirely serious:

    http://discworld.atuin.net/lpc/links/cabbage/recipies/boiledc.html

    but that suggestion sounds very good!

    ETA: sorry to sound stupid but do you mean somehow parboil the whole cabbage and stuff it, or do leaves individually like dolmas?

    Now you've got me thinking - originally meant individual leaves but no reason why you couldn't do whole cabbage and either separate after par-boiling which might make it easier.

    Hope this helps.

    sneaks over with a pointed cabbage and hits crana999 with it, as requested!

    The only thing I can think of .... I was once served a dessert in a very posh place (it was a prize!) chocolate coated cabbage leaves - but I think that was white cabbage because it was crisp. :confused:

    Cabbage soup?
    Coleslaw?

    oi!
    I had some of it in a curry.

    The cabbage rolls sound good, but perhaps a little time-consuming.. I might give them a try anyway

    Bubble and squeak is the obvious suggestion - so obvious that I expect it's on one of the links above that I haven't opened! I know you can't do the proper fried recipe but just boil it up with and onion, then mash it all together with cooked mashed potato and top with grated cheese.
    I haven't bogged off yet, and I ain't no babe

    Oh, now that does appeal! Thanks for taking account of not being able to fry things too

    I think I will make that tomorrow!

    that also sounds good, apart from the lack of fresh ginger and garlic. I do have a fresh lemon though! A lecturer brought a load of citrus fruits to a lecture and told us to take some home

    I think he has a thing about citrus fruits. He started juggling lemons today.

    Quarter it and cook in mince for AGES till the cabbage is cooked, the mince gets inside the layers of leaves and it is yum!
  • aliasojo
    The curry thing sounds ok crana, at least then you wouldn't taste the cabbage.

    Well not fry, but steamed cabbage is nice.

    He fries up with onions, peppers and a little black pepper and salt.

    Then steam cooks it, yummy.

    I stir fry cabbage. Depending on the variety you have, it takes no time at all.
  • strontianjohn
    of course you can - do it with onions and sliced peppers and mushrooms then add soy sauce - good with chinese

    I stir fry it too, shredded savoy is particularly nice

    if it's a bit wilted, use the best bits & add a chinese-style sauce after brief frying
  • crossleydd42
    You can and a lot more besides, especially to try and get the children to eat it! Here are some other recipes:
