My favorite way to cook cabbage.

This is a simple, tasty and healthy recipe for cooking cabbage. This is also my favorite method. If you’ve never made cabbage before, you need to start. When the cabbage boils in the pan, it wilts and becomes tender and sweet. Cabbage might seem like a boring side dish, but it’s one of our favorite side dishes.


Cabbage is underrated and a powerhouse of nutrients. It’s good for you with a high vitamin C content, it’s high in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties.

We love cabbage in many forms, but our favorite way to cook it is in some fat on the stove. In this simple recipe, we keep it healthier and cook the cabbage in olive oil, but you can substitute other fats for olive oil.

Try butter, coconut oil, or nut oils like walnut. You can even cook some bacon bits before the cabbage and use the rendered bacon fat for extra flavor; We’re doing this for our easy Bacon Fried Cabbage recipe.

make the recipe

Preparing this cabbage recipe couldn’t be easier. Heat some fat in a pan, add the shredded cabbage (I’ve shared my tips for shredding cabbage below), a little salt and pepper, and cook until tender and sweet.

Simply sautéed cabbage cooked with olive oil, salt and a little pepper is delicious, but if you have some in the kitchen we like to add minced garlic and fresh lemon juice.

The garlic adds flavor and the lemon brightens the dish. If you don’t have lemon, apple cider vinegar is a great substitute.

If you like the combination of lemon and garlic, try our Brussels Sprouts Sauteed in Balsamic, Sauteed Green Beans in Garlic Butter, Lightly Sauteed Kale, or this Sauteed Lemon Spinach.

How to grate cabbage

I love the shredded cabbage in this recipe. Here’s how I do it:

  1. Remove torn or bruised outer leaves.
  2. Quarter the cabbage, cut out the stalk.
  3. Cut the cabbage wedges into thin strips. You can shred by hand with a knife (like the photos below), use a mandolin, or use the shredding attachment on your food processor.
Cutting the cabbage into quarters will make it easier to remove the core.
Quarter the cabbage into thin strips.

This easy and healthy sautéed cabbage recipe is delicious. When the cabbage boils in the pan, it wilts and becomes tender and sweet. Cabbage may sound boring, but it’s one of our favorite side dishes. White cabbage is our favorite for this, but other types of cabbage will do, too. However, keep in mind that napa cabbage releases more moisture and doesn’t brown as well in the pan.

2 pounds white cabbage, seeded and shredded (10 cups)

1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic

A pinch of crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt or more to taste

Half a lemon, cut into wedges


    Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cabbage, garlic, red pepper flakes and salt. It may seem like too much cabbage for the pan, but as it cooks, the cabbage will collapse.

    Cook, stirring occasionally, until cabbage is tender and some of the cabbage is beginning to brown lightly; 10 to 15 minutes.

    Squeeze the juice of 2 lemon slices over the cabbage. Taste and season with more salt, pepper and lemon juice as needed.
