15 Awesome Paleo Cabbage Recipes You Have To Try

These paleo cabbage recipes include dishes such as sauerkraut, coleslaw, slaw, kimchi, pickles, and much more.

Cabbage is often considered a boring vegetable, but it has tons of health benefits.

Cabbage contains high levels of vitamin K, folate, fiber, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, and manganese.

1. Paleo Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls

This recipe is easy enough to make even if you don’t have much experience cooking. If you’re looking for something delicious and healthy, try making these paleo cabbage rolls.

There’s no stuffing involved, just filling the cabbages with sauerkraut and meat.

If you’re looking for something quick and easy to make, look no further than stuffing cabbage leaves into a pan.

This method saves time because you don’t have to stuff each leaf individually.

Plus, you can use leftover meat, veggies, and spices to fill up your stuffed cabbage rolls.

Sauté the cabbage and onions first, since they take the longest to cook. Add the mushrooms and the cooked sausages (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Sausage Recipes You Have To Try‘).

Finally, heat the mixture thoroughly and serve. This dish is perfectly served with pasta or rice.

2. Chicken Cabbage Stir Fry

This keto chicken cabbage stir-fry is one of our favorite meals. When we do it, we like to use a cast iron pan because it heats up really fast and keeps the food warm throughout the meal.

If you don’t have a cast iron pan, just use whatever pan you prefer. You can even use a regular pan, but you’ll probably want to add some extra oil to keep the temperature consistent.

We always serve this dish with rice. We like brown jasmine rice, but white basmati rice works too. Just make sure you rinse off the excess starch that might remain in the pan.

You can also eat this dish with cauliflower rice. Simply cut out the core of the head of broccoli and steam it until tender. Then chop it into small pieces.

3. Sauteed Cabbage Recipe

Cut the cabbage into quarters. Remove the core. Separate the leaves and slice each leaf very thin. Place shredded leaves evenly over the bottom half of the pan.

Sweet, caramelized, and creamy cabbage is one of those things you just don’t see often enough. But it’s easy to make.

And it goes great with pork chops (see also ‘15 Awesome Paleo Pork Chop Recipes For Paleo Lovers‘), chicken, steak, fish, pasta…pretty much anything. 

4. Instant Pot Cabbage Beef Soup Recipe (Paleo)

Cabbage soup is a classic dish that originated in Eastern Europe. While there are countless variations, the most common version includes shredded cabbage, onions, carrots, celery, and spices.

Some people prefer adding meat such as ham or bacon. However, if you want to make it healthier, you can simply omit the meat altogether and just use vegetable broth.

This recipe for instant pot cabbage soup with ground beef is one of our favorite soups because it’s packed full of good stuff like superfood kale and cauliflower, plus tons of flavor thanks to the spices and herbs. 

5. Greek Lamb And Cabbage Bowls {Paleo, Keto, Gluten-Free)

We are always looking for quick and easy recipes that don’t take too long to make and are packed full of flavor.

When we came across this recipe for Lamb and Cabbage bowls, we knew we wanted to try it out.

We love cabbage, especially in soups and stews, and we had some leftover lamb from another recipe we had been working on.

So we combined those ingredients together and voilà! A hearty and flavorful bowl that makes us think of Greece every time.

The base of this soup is a creamy cauliflower purée that is flavored with olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaves.

You could easily use cauliflower rice here instead, but we prefer the taste of whole florets and the texture of the purée.

This recipe is perfect for busy weeknights because it takes less than 30 minutes to put together and cook and requires minimal cleanup. Plus, it tastes like something straight out of Greece!

6. World’s Best Braised Green Cabbage

This is one of those recipes you’ll want to make again and again because it’s just too darn good. These simple braises turn out tender cabbage leaves that are full of flavor and packed with nutrients.

The secret to getting great results is to use high-quality ingredients. You can find green cabbage at farmers’ markets or grocery stores.

If you don’t see it there, ask around; chances are someone knows where to buy it. And if you’re lucky enough to live near a farmer, he might even sell it to you directly.

7. Sautéed Taiwanese Cabbage (gluten-free, Paleo)

Most of us are familiar with Chinese cabbage, but did you know there’s actually a different type of cabbage called “Taiwanese Cabbage?”

This one is crunchier and sweeter than regular green cabbage, just like our favorite dish – Taiwanese Sautéed Vegetables.

The secret behind the deliciousness lies in the combination of the ingredients used – it’s simply amazing.

8. Whole Stuffed Cabbage

This recipe for stuffed cabbage is one of our favorites because it takes us straight back to childhood memories of stuffing cabbage leaves with ground beef, cheese, and spices.

This version uses cauliflower florets rather than cabbage leaves, but we think you’ll find the flavor just as delicious. 

You could easily use broccoli stems here, too, and even add some finely chopped zucchini to give the dish a little extra texture.

9. Easy Sausage And Cabbage Skillet

This easy skillet recipe features delicious sausages and hearty cabbage slaw. This meal is perfect for busy weeknights or lazy weekends. You’ll love how fast it cooks up, too!

This easy skillet recipe features a delicious combination of sausages and cabbage slaw. This meal is perfect for those days you don’t want to spend much time cooking.

You’ll enjoy it even better knowing how healthy it is.

10. Paleo Asian Chicken Cabbage Salad

This Asian chicken cabbage salad is perfect for lunch or dinner. It’s full of flavor and nutrients, and it makes a great side dish or main course.

Plus, it’s super easy to make. You just mix up some ingredients and toss them together. This recipe is also gluten-free, paleo, vegan, dairy-free, and healthy.

This dish uses gluten-free rice noodles, which are usually labeled “gluten-free.” If you don’t want to use gluten-free noodles, you can substitute regular wheat pasta. 

11. Caramelized Cabbage And Bacon

This recipe features crispy bacon bits added to a traditional side dish of sautéed cabbage and onions. 

Make sure that you reduce the heat to low when cooking and stir in the bacon, salt, and pepper to taste.

Cook, stirring often until the cabbage is tender and lightly browned, about 15 minutes longer. 

12. Braised Bratwurst And Cabbage

This dish is perfect for those looking to eat healthy while still enjoying some hearty food. A few simple ingredients are used to make this meal complete.

For example, bacon adds flavor and texture to the meat. Cabbage provides nutrients and vitamins, and it helps keep you full.

Finally, mustard gives the meat a kick. Altogether, this makes for a filling meal that won’t weigh you down.

13. Oven Roasted Cabbage Wedge

We love roasted vegetables. We especially like to toss them with some olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and whatever else sounds good to me.

This recipe is perfect because it takes just 20 minutes to make, and you don’t even have to turn on the oven.

You can use your favorite seasoning combinations, too. Just keep in mind that the longer you cook this vegetable, the less crunchy it becomes.

This recipe takes a different approach, roasting cabbage wedges in avocado olive oil and seasoning with garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. 

Roasting cabbage brings out its natural sweetness while keeping some crunchiness intact. Plus, the flavors are infused throughout the entire vegetable.

14. Roasted Red Cabbage

Roasting cabbage brings out its sweetness and makes it tender. This recipe calls for red cabbage because it has a sweeter flavor than green cabbage.

If you don’t like red cabbage, use green cabbage. You can cut the size of the head into pieces according to how many people are eating.

15. Dutch Stamppot Recipe With Sausage

Creamy mashed potatoes are usually associated with Thanksgiving dinner, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t enjoy them every day.

This recipe calls for Dutch Rookworst sausages, which are very similar to Italian salami, except they’re smoked.

They’re often served alongside stamppot, a traditional Dutch side dish consisting of mashed potatoes and vegetables like carrots and turnips.

The ingredients are easy enough to find at most grocery stores, and they make a hearty vegetarian main course.

If you want to add some meat, try serving it over a bed of greens like kale or collards.

Final Thoughts

There are so many ways to prepare cabbage. It’s an excellent source of fiber, vitamin K, folate, and potassium. It also contains antioxidants and phytochemicals.

So whether you’re looking for a quick snack or a full meal, cabbage will always be a great addition to your diet.
