Spicy Cajun Cabbage

"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."

  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.


  • 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.

I loved the way these flavors sounded but I was looking for a cold side, so I mixed all the spices with a mayo/sour cream combo added a bit of sugar and vinegar and the result totally wow'd my B...

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...

Very, very good

This is a really, really good recipe. After reading the other reviews I cut down the cayenne to 1/4 tsp. I like spice but I can't have much. :) Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it ...

I love this! I added garlic powder and lime juice for some tang and it kicked it up a notch! Oh and more butter, can never have enough butter.
