Since switching over to a keto way of eating I find it difficult to have nutritious and delicious side dishes. Not really difficult, more work in the way of thinking. My go to used to be sweet peas, rice, potatoes, corn, mac n cheese, ALL carb loaded. Since I no longer eat those, I have to find something to eat besides a salad or green beans.
I was looking at the low carb list of vegetables and saw cabbage. I love cabbage and it is harvested here pretty much from April to October, so there are plentiful and FULL of nutrients. See this post Looking over my blog post I see I have 36 recipes that feature cabbage. Dang I had no idea. 😲
4-5 cups chopped cabbage
1 medium onion, I used Viadala
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup butter
salt and pepper
parsley flakes 1 TBSP
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
3/4 Mexican creme fraiche
1 TBSP ranch dressing POWDER mix
1/2 cup shredded cheese
*Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes*
First chop your cabbage, onion and mince the garlic.
I used a large cast iron skillet, melt the butter, toss in the cabbage, onion and garlic, add the salt, pepper and parsley. Stir well and cook until slightly tender, not mushy as it will be baked as well.
Stir in the cream, creme fraiche or sour cream, ranch mix and shredded cheese. Stir well and pour into a nonstick baking pan or spray a casserole dish.
Bake on 400 degrees for 20 minutes. You can also top the casserole with cheese. I sprinkled just a little on top.
Bake and enjoy!
Personally I loved it, D did not. Also the second night I thought it was even better, he still did not. Oh well, they can't all be 10 out of 10 for everyone.
