IMO tightly-wrapped white/green cabbage is awesome, both chopped raw for coleslaw or steamed (NEVER boiled!). It's rarely mentioned, yet has a unique taste, texture and fibrous bulk. It's all kinds of awesome in its own way but IMO is vastly undervalued and unrecognised for its roughage, yet incredible for its health value and content... and so, so tasty after being steamed and coated with butter. And it takes just 1 minute to steam! It's like a food god all on its own... (although many suffer wind afterwards).

Rick…I am one who suffers wind afterwards🤭 but still enjoy it…I’ll have to try steaming it, I have chopped and used in salads, used in soup and as a wrap but never just steamed…thanks! Hope to see you around on the board more…

recently tried a cabbage combining cabbage and kale. a knock off of a chik-fil-et offering. and also my favorite over the long term for cabbage salad. an oldie from laurels kitchen. will post both shortly. never a fan of cooked cabbage... boiled, roasted, whatever. does not work for me. neither do mayo based dressings. but these two I like.

I had forgotten the exact name of the salad so maybe it can be found online. I went back to the book. It's always good, most people to like it. easy to have ready ahead of time with ingredients always available. I like cabbage salads but not cooked cabbage. the smell. a few scraps in vegetable soup is my limit. I've tried many times, but no.
I have been eating cabbage and noodles my entire life. It's a recipe my mom used to make.
finely slice cabbage whole onion sliced Butter
combine and slowly stir-fry until cabbage and onion are soft and almost carmelized. Then add in cooked noodles, and stir until combined and warm. You can also add bacon. I would fry the bacon and onions in butter, add in the cabbage and then the noodles. YUM~!
