Vegan Southern Fried Cabbage is a flavorful meatless version of the Southern Classic dish. It is easy to prepare using a combination of sauteing and stewing cabbage with onion, garlic, and herbs in a vegetable broth.
This Southern Fried Cabbage recipe is the perfect side for your New Year's menu because it not only tastes delicious but it is very easy to prepare. I decided to take this dish to another level by adding some homemade Coconut Bacon.
For many people who are transitioning to a vegan diet this New Year, I wanted to help make this transition as easy as possible with the same familiar tastes and textures and for them to see that it is quite easy to remain a vegan with all these delicious recipes that you won't even miss the meat.
I'm crazy about cabbage and I love to include it in my meal planning, it is not only nutritious but it is very economical and versatile, check out my Detox Cabbage Soup, Jamaican Steamed Cabbage, Curry Cabbage and Roasted Cabbage Steaks recipes. They are all so flavorful and will be a big hit when you serve these recipes to your family and friends.
How To Make Fried Cabbage

Add vegetable broth and cover and allow to cook for 10 minutes or until cabbage is tender, stir in coconut bacon and serve.
My vegan Southern fried cabbage turned out amazing and I served it with my Southern Black-Eyed Peas and Corn Muffins, what a mouthwatering treat it was. Most traditional recipes use Cajun seasoning, I basically made my own blend with a combination of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and thyme.
Cabbage has lots of nutrients, it is high in fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants. Check out the amazing health benefits of cabbage!
