The Beauty of Cabbage

I can never seem to use up a whole head of cabbage no matter how hard I try. The layers of this leafy green plant are unending and I am in desperate need of new ways to cook with this gem.

This is, in fact, one of the main reasons why cabbage is so popular across Ireland: it’s cost effectiveness. Cabbage is nutrient dense and grows exceptionally well in the Irish countryside. During the great potato famine, poor farmers in rural Ireland relied on this plant for sustenance as their major crop was drastically depleted. Colcannon, a traditional Irish favorite, combines cabbage (or kale) with the beloved potato – the best of both worlds.

This article suggests that the average Irish person of this time ate upwards of 65 pounds of cabbage per year. That is A LOT of heads of cabbage!!

And the love of cabbage doesn’t stop there. It spreads to Europe with sauerkraut, coleslaw, stuffed cabbage in Hungary, and continues to Asian cultures in egg rolls, kimchi, steam dumplings, and more.

I can’t think of a better day out of the year to celebrate Ireland and honor their history by making dishes filled to the brim with cabbage. Dive into this list of St. Patrick’s Day Cabbage Recipes for inspiration!

  2. So many great ways to use cabbage in recipes. I tend to mostly eat cabbage in the form of coleslaw, but I think giving these recipes a try would be a great way to add more cabbage into our meal plan. They sure do look tasty and easy to make.

  3. These look GREAT! I was all ready to try the Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls next week, but now I may need to rethink that…so many other delicious corned beef ideas. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Now, cabbage is not something I would have thought of for St. Patrick’s day. Interesting! I suppose I’m just used to Irish stew being the norm over here. Definitely some I’ll need to try.

  5. I believe I eat cabbage only a couple of times a year, one on St Patrick’s Day and the other in the fall when I make a choucroute garnie. Somehow never think of using it more often. All your recipes inspire me.
    Thank you for all the wonderful recipes that you put together for us.

  6. My husband and I have recently been discussing adding more cabbage to our diet. We both enjoy it, but are never quite sure what to make with it. So, this blog post is very helpful! A plethora of great ideas!

  7. What a lovely collection. Not just for St Patricks Day but every day. I saved a few recipes to give them a try. Thanks!
