New Year's Day Garlic Parmesan Cabbage Recipe (20 Minutes)

Cabbage was served often when I was growing up. My mom made fried cabbage, which is a southern thing. For a long time, that was the only way I prepared cabbage. Then I moved on to cabbage steaks, cheat day cabbage and cabbage curry, to name a few.

My latest cabbage recipe discovery is garlic Parmesan cabbage. To make this easy cabbage dish you need olive oil, garlic, onion, cabbage, Parmesan cheese and heavy cream or evaporated milk. 

I served this easy vegetable side dish recipe with pork steaks and roasted carrots.

Recipe Notes

  • The original recipe didn't call for cream, but I added a splash to make it creamier.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onion and garlic. Cook until soft, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add the cabbage and continue to cook, stirring often, until soft and wilted, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Add the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until melted. Add a splash of cream, if desired. Stir.
