Braised Cabbage

Cabbage is one of the foods that made a regular appearance in our CSA boxes. And while I’m a big fan of homeamde coleslaw, Hubby is not. So we had to find another way to prepare our weekly head of cabbage.

Braised Cabbage

This recipe came from just trial and error, playing around until we found something that we liked. And it’s no wonder we liked it, it’s cabbage braised in bacon drippings. This recipes makes quite a bit of braised cabbage, but it reheats nicely, so we just eat the leftovers until they are gone.

    Finally, a picnic salad that goes with my low-carb diet that I keep cheating on! Hehe. Seriously, I am stuck with so many pasta or potato salads. One that’s totally veggie based is a godsend. And I love sugar snap peas!

      I try to eat low carb as much as possible and it can be so tough in the summer. With all the buns for grilled food and pasta/potato salads – it just gets to be too much.
