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.

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 not. However, that being said,we loved it. I would make a few modifications. I followed recipe exactly but found with the small head of cabbage I did not need all the spices. I used about 3/4 of mixed spices and would cut down to about half that or cut up more cabbage. I also liked the sauted onions and since the whole thing is cooked eventually anyway, I would used a larger onion with the same small head of cabbage. Otherwise, this was a great way to make something we don't eat alot of but like - cabbage. It's a nice change from the regular round of cooked veggies. I paired this with red beans and rice and center cut boneless pork chops rubbed with Creole seasoning (like Tony Chachere's)and it was like the Cajun version of a german pork and cabbage meal!

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 with garden fresh cabbage. For color may add red and yellow peppers

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 spicy and next time would not put in as much cayenne and chilli, and I didn't use all of the spice mix either. I used about 1/2 of it. To counter the over-spiciness, I added some cream at the end of cooking, and it made it lovely and creamy.
