The Best Vegan Cabbage Recipes
The moment you find out there’s way more to cabbage than boiled or blanched, you’re in for a very, very delicious ride. Here are our favourite vegan cabbage recipes for you to broaden your horizons.
This Filipino-style dish is zingy and bright, packed with crunchy cabbage and carrots, as well as glazed mushrooms and springy rice noodles. A stir fry perfect for summer evenings, this dish is vibrant and citrus, thanks to a lemon soy sauce that coats the noodles and veg for maximum flavour and depth in every bite.
Poke made plant-based is the summery, bright dinner you need to make this week. It is a medley of textures and flavours, with sticky, nutty tempeh, crunchy fresh vegetables and creamy avocado. Stay cool on warm summer evenings with this dish, as the majority of cooking time is in prepping the veg rather than staying over the stove. If you’ve had a go fermenting your cabbage to make your own kimchi, this poke bowl recipe is exactly what you should make to celebrate your success.
Got a half a head of cabbage you’re not sure what to do with? These tofu and mushroom gyozas are here to save the day, providing some amazing, deeply savoury dumplings that are always a crowd-pleaser. Served with a tangy soy-vinegar dipping sauce, these dim sum darlings may start out as a means to use up veg but will end as a work of art when you get the crimping style down.
Yes, it’s called a kale and leek gratin, but our Development Kitchen Assistant and creator of this dish, Iona, has gone on record to say that this is just as delicious with savoy cabbage. It’s creamy, comforting, and decadent, which is amazing when considering that this dish relies on stale bread and greens that you may need to use up. The perfect weeknight vegan dinner.
