If you’re looking for an easy way to cook cabbage and not have it turn out mushy, you found it! This recipe is simple, so even novices in the kitchen can prepare this with ease. Below is a video demonstration of making the recipe. Following the video link is a scaled down recipe from what I made in the video. (The recipe can EASILY be increased or decreased.)
Easy Sautéed Cabbage
Makes About 4 Servings
1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil*
½ cup chopped yellow onion
4 cups chopped green cabbage
1/3 cup vegetable broth or water
Salt and pepper, to taste
Briefly warm the extra virgin olive oil in a skillet that has a lid. Add the onions and sauté briefly until they start to soften, about 1 or 2 minutes. Add the chopped cabbage and stir to combine. Add the vegetable broth or water and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cover the skillet with a lid, and allow the vegetables to steam, stirring occasionally, until they are crisp tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and serve.
*If preferred, a tablespoon or two of the vegetable stock can be used to sauté the onions in place of the oil.

That love of food blossomed into a quest to learn more and more about health and wellness as related to nutrition. She went on to earn a BS Degree in Food and Nutrition, then an MS Degree in Nutrition. She has taught nutrition and related courses at the college level to pre-nursing and exercise science students. Her hunger to learn didn’t stop upon graduation from college. She continues to research on a regular basis about nutrition as it relates to health. Her hope is to help as many people as possible to enjoy foods that promote health and wellness.
