Buttery Sauteed Cabbage with garlic and onions

Cabbage is one of my all-time favourite vegetables and this buttery sautéed cabbage with garlic and onions is simply the best. So simple it only takes 5 minutes.

How Much We Love Cabbage

Cabbage is a delightful yet understated vegetable. It is super affordable and suits any diet you fancy be it keto, low fat or banting. I love it in as many ways as it comes. Sauteed, baked, quiched, gratinated, fried, raw slaw, salad, in spring rolls and the list goes on. I could eat it all day. I love it as a side to meat and sadza dishes, dumplings, stew and even chapati. It goes particularly well with Chinese style rice and chicken dishes and so many more.

The Best Way to Cook Buttery Sautéed Cabbage

Slice the cabbage as thinly as you can. You don’t have to. It will be delicious either way, however, thinly slicing it will make it quite delicate and quick cooking. Cabbage goes really well with the allium family of vegetables be it cabbage and leak, cabbage and onion, or a buttery garlicky cabbage dish. I see no reason to change this at all. My favourite way to make buttery sautéed cabbage is to pair it with plenty of onions and garlic. You can use a minimal amount of butter if you are fat conscious, or you could go as liberally as you like. It is such a simple dish that you can spruce up at a festive dinner table with a few slivers of flat beans (romano beans) for a bright green and fresh touch. Alternatively, you could sprinkle with spring onions or parsley.
