Spicy Cajun Cabbage

Spicy Cajun Cabbage

Carolyn Chieffe Perrine

"I threw this together one night when I was craving a Cajun chicken pasta dish I used to make. I've missed it since going low-carb. This dish was a perfect substitute! Great texture and a very, very mild vegetable flavor. Mostly just Cajun yumminess! Adjust the spices to your taste."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Combine chili powder, thyme, smoked paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, cumin, onion powder, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in hot butter until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until soft, about 2 minutes; stir shredded cabbage into onion and garlic. Cook and stir cabbage mixture until cabbage starts to soften, about 5 more minutes.
  3. Stir spices into cabbage mixture and cook, stirring often, until spices are evenly mixed in and cabbage is tender, 3 more minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The spice quantities are a guide. Add or subtract to your taste (and heat tolerance). The cabbage should be small. You need a yield of about 5 cups shredded cabbage.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Well, first off, my finished product looked nothing like the picture so don't expect it to. This is really spicy cooked cabbage and onions so don't think of it as a cold crunchy slaw. It's no...

Loved this as I love spicy foods, but next time will slightly turn down the heat by reducing amount of chili pepper. I didn't have cayenne so used red pepper flakes. Will be making this often wi...

This was delicious! My husband even said that it was the first time he'd ever had cabbage that he hadn't hated! Two of my three kids really liked it too. I found the spice mix to be a little spi...

having read the reviews before making this i figured i'd just halve the seasonings but unfortunately it was still too strong.. i started out by adding a dash or two of both worcestershire and wh...

This is a pretty solid side dish. A little spicy for some I imagine but the spice blend works well . I followed the directions very close (for me) and my dish looked like the photo pretty much,...

I made this but I changed it a little bit. I added sautéed celery, carrots,fresh garlic and onion. I added extra chili powder since I didn't have any other spicy ingredient. I also added soy...

Absolutely delicious! I love hot and spicy and I used hot Hungarian paprika but only 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. I also doubled the butter at 4 tablespoons. Came out with a slight crunch...
