What do I do with all this cabbage? Make a poser homestead mock egg roll one-pot meal!

Every fall we’re buried in cabbage. That’s a blessing. Also a blessing: cabbage is one of the best root cellar foods out there. It will last until the first leaves of spring salad come in.

There is only so much cabbage I can eat. Unless… I recycle and disguise it. I juiced it once. I don’t recommend this. It’s like liquid gas–not the kind you put in the lawn tractor or log splitter either.   This recipe’s great because you can one-pot up a meal and even freeze it. It’ll recycle many veggie and meat leftovers into a great meal.

  • cabbage. Napa or green are wonderful, but whatever you grew is fine.
  • soy sauce
  • onion
  • ginger
  • garlic
  • meat (optional)
  • eggs
  1. Stir fry the cabbage and onion in a bit of peanut or canola oil.
  2. Add garlic, ginger, and soy sauce toward the end.
  3. Add scrambled eggs (pre-cooked in the style of stir-fried rice, or just scrambled and tossed in)
  4. Add any meats you want, too.

COST: $  It doesn’t get cheaper than cabbage. Especially since you’re probably buried in it.

GLUTEN FREE: Yes. Watch your soy sauce, though–some types have gluten.

VEGETARIAN: Yes. Skip the meat.

VEGAN: Yes.  Skip the meat.

KETO:  Yes.

INSTANT POT: You can, using sauté, but this’ll be easier with a big frying pan.

COOK AHEAD:  This can be frozen but is much better fresh.
