Cabbage is one of the green vegetables that I loved as a kid and my mom made quite often. It was inexpensive and a quick side dish that could feed our large family. Now if you grew up mainly eating boiled cabbage like me, first, I totally understand, and second, you’ll be surprised how many more ways you can enjoy this extremely economical vegetable. From cabbage soup recipes and cabbage rolls, to cabbage stir-fries, coleslaws, and more; cabbage is a versatile and budget-friendly hero!!
