Uses for cabbage leaves

Does anyone have any recipes for using the leaves of cabbages besides rolls. This will be our 2nd year of growing our own cabbage and we hate the waste of the leaves. Thank you so much.

KW can’t wait to hear from you I know you’ll have something good to make out them.

Have you considered chopping it up and make sauerkraut? Chopped cabbage is also excellent stir fried.

you could also try making soup with it. A vegetable soup or a stuffed cabbage soup.

Try thinly slicing both green and purple cabbage together to make a salad.

You can fry some diced bacon, then fry chopped onion and then the chopped cabbage leaves. Salt and pepper and Voila!

Haluski is also a yummy option…


1 stick butter
1 head green cabbage, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1 package of egg noodles, cooked

  • Melt butter in a pot. Add cabbage and onion. Cook until cabbage has shrunken and is cooked through. This usually takes about 30 minutes.

  • Mix in the noodles. Add salt to taste. I usually add the salt liberally because that is the key to this dish.
