What do you do with a huge head of cabbage?

So, we got a huge head of cabbage from a neighbour recently and what am I going to do with a huge head of cabbage that could spoil and stink up the fridge if not cooked and eaten.

First, I used some of it, raw, with my pita dinner with baked chicken breast meat. Then I cooked it in three other ways.

Here’s one of it:

Easy Cabbage Soup


5 large leaves of cabbage, roughly chopped

1.3 ltr water

2 large carrots, cut into chunks

2 pods garlic

2 tomatoes, sliced

half cube chicken stock

7 peppercorn

dash of salt

5 pc bite-size chicken strips, seasoned with salt


1. Get your ingredients ready and heat up the water in a pot

2. Then you just dump everything into the pot of boiling water.

3. Lower the heat and let the soup simmer for about 30 minutes over low heat.

That’s it. It’s as simple and easy as it could get. Then you get a bowl of simple cabbage soup. Best of all, it is pretty healthy too.

Yeah, I am sure everyone has heard of the cabbage soup diet and all but really, as healthy as this is I can’t envision myself drinking this cabbage soup day in day out. That’s just darn weird. So, this soup took care of some of the cabbage.

Tomorrow, I’ll post up another way of disposing of the cabbage…errr…I mean cook the cabbage.
