I’m still on the cabbage kick. No, not the silly soup diet. I’m fascinated with the plant and how goooooood it tastes boiled. I’m thinking my surprise with the veggie’s tastiness is part of what’s making me love it right now.
I’ve often sauteed it and worked it into my pastas, and that tastes pretty great. But feeling curious one night, I wanted to see how my Paleo friends eat this as a noodle.
Yes, a noodle.
Does it actually taste like a noodle? Is it good?
I tried it, and I will say that if you’re looking for a noodle substitute that has the same taste and texture as a noodle, look elsewhere.
Now that doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. No, I actually really liked it. A lot.
But curious reader, try it! It’s a fun little culinary experiment and a big heaping serving of veggies. Can’t beat that.
1/3 head of cabbage or 1.5 cups
Bring a pot of water to a boil.
Meanwhile, chop your cabbage into “noodles” by slicing lengthwise. I think the thinner the better.
Now add in your sauce, veggie, and meat favorites! I did a red sauce with onions, tomatoes, and ground turkey.
