Creamy 5-Ingredient Cabbage Curry Recipe Is a Flavorful Side Dish

This creamy five-ingredient cabbage curry recipe is my new favorite way to cook cabbage. Chicken marinated in Thai tea was on the menu, and I needed a side dish. With a head of cabbage in the refrigerator, this easy cabbage curry recipe became the vegetable of choice. But it became so much more than that! This cabbage curry will now be a vegetarian (and vegan) main dish on Meatless Monday (or Tuesday or Wednesday...). The cabbage recipe is so easy, creamy, satisfying and loaded with Indian flavor.

To make this easy low-sodium cabbage recipe you will need olive oil, onion, garlic, green cabbage, curry powder and coconut milk. That's it! The gluten-free side dish cooks up in about 20 minutes. So quick and easy!

You can serve this flavorful vegan curry recipe as a side dish with your favorite protein, or over pasta, rice, quinoa, farro or grain of choice for a vegetarian main dish. This five-ingredient recipe is a keeper! When reheating, add a splash of coconut milk to loosen it up a bit.
