Notes

  • To save yourself some labor, use the grater disk on your food processor to shred the cabbage. With the food processor, you can grate up a cabbage in under 2 minutes.
  • If you grate the cabbage into really fine pieces, you may need to adjust the cooking time because it will become tender more quickly. This could also change the texture.
  • The creamy texture comes from a combination of cream of celery soup, mayonnaise and milk. The perfect cheesy flavor is a result of 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, not too much and not too little.
  • Feel free to swap out the cream of celery soup for another canned soup like cream of mushroom or cream of chicken if that's all you have on hand.
  • Cabbage is a great ingredient to use year round. It's usually inexpensive and one large head can go a long ways. During the summer months, it's easy to grow your own or can be found at reasonable prices at your local farmers' market.
  • Try our Sweet and Sour Coleslaw, Skillet Smoked Sausage and Cabbage or Low Calorie Cabbage Soup.
