this is going to sound disgusting. Really I do.
I have had this recipe sitting around for a while and finally tried it last night. I was really curious what it tasted like and since it’s easy and inexpensive to make I did! I figured if I hated it I would be out 20 minutes and $1.50. Tops.
Fried Cabbage, Southern Style
Ingredients (use vegan versions):
2 tablespoons oil
5 cups cabbage, coarsely shredded
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
cayenne pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons vinegar
1. Heat oil in large skillet. Add cabbage, onion, salt and nutmeg.
2. Cover and cook slowly about 20 minutes. Add vegan sugar and cayenne pepper to vinegar and mix well.
3. Pour over cabbage and cook 5 minutes longer.
Serves: 2-3, Preparation time: 15 min. or less
I made half the recipe, or at least I used a half a cabbage and about half of everything else, I didn’t really measure anything. This come out to maybe 50 calories for a huge mound of it.
IT WAS GOOD! Tasted like sweet and sour something.
That was yesterday, I had half left over so tonight I cut up a quarter of a package of the Trader Joes Tempeh and fried it up with this leftover Southern Fried Cabbage. It was So So So Good! It tasted different than when it was fresh. Fresh you could really taste distinctive Sweet, Salty and Sour. Reheated with the chopped up Tempeh it was mellower. I want more.
AND as a bonus, it’s really healthy and low fat, and low calories. Maybe 200 calories for six inch round serving piled up a little.
