I found a more complicated version of this recipe on Kitchn when I was searching for ideas to make cabbage taste good. This should say something about my thoughts about cabbage going into this experience. I didn’t have the spices they called for, so I decided to make my own version that’s much simpler, and surprise, surprise, it ended up tasting really, really good.
Here’s why curried cabbage is awesome:
- It’s super simple to make and ready in about 10 minutes
- It’s really inexpensive! A head of organic cabbage only costs about $2.50 and greek yogurt – about a buck.
- It’s a great source of protein (give or take 10 grams per serving) with lots of fiber.
- It’s the perfect alternative to take out. Cabbage will sit in your fridge for weeks before spoiling, so when you have nothing else – cabbage and yogurt to the rescue!
Which cabbage to use?
I used a standard green cabbage for this recipe. Red cabbage is much tougher and might to provide the same end result (but you can certainly try it!)
What kind of greek yogurt should you use?
I used 0% for this recipe which is lower in fat and higher in protein. I don’t think the fat count is as important as the texture and quality. With that, I recommend Fage. It’s by far my favorite. Trader Joe’s is a close 2nd.
Will it be spicy?
No. Flavorful, yes, but not spices with heat (at least I don’t think so).
