What To Serve With Your Vegan Southern Fried Cabbage?
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!

THIS RECIPE IS DELICIOUS!!
Thank you Kim for your feedback.
I tried your southern fried cabbage with the coconut bacon, very good twist with the coconut,I give it a thumbs up. Cathleen
Cathleen, thank you very much for your feedback, I really appreciate it. I’m so happy you enjoyed it.
Can you make this with any type of cabbage?
Helen, yes you can.
My husband and I got back from a hike and we were starving. I had a cabbage and found this recipe. It’s the fastest I’ve ever made cabbage and it’s delicious! I didn’t use the oil or the coconut bacon, but I’d love to try the bacon sometime.
SO GOOD and flavorful. I’ve never made sautéed cabbage before so I halved the recipe in case I wasn’t a fan, but in hindsight, I wish I made more!
Lindsay, I’m really happy you tried it and you are satisfied with the outcome. Thank you for sharing your feedback.
Nice! Will modify this without oil adding a spoon of tahini and 2 Tbs. of shredded coconut. Looks Great!
Robyn, you don’t need to add the tahini unless you want extra calcium, I recommend you saute the onion and garlic with vegetable broth and leave out the shredded coconut. It will taste great.
Made this last night but left out the coconut bacon. I’m not vegan or vegetarian but have been on a low carb diet for about a year and am am always looking out for exciting things to do with veg. This is simply amazing. It’s so easy to make and really tasty. It’s now firmly on my list of new sides for my BBQ meals.
5stars from me. Sorry but my iPad won’t allow me to use the star rating.
Laurence, I’m so happy you have found my recipe. I’m happy you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.
Thank you for this recipe! I used it New Year’s Day and it was easy and delish!
Yvonne that’s awesome, I’m so happy you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing your feedback.
This recipe was SO delicious. I realized I did not have vegetable broth and used 1.5 to 2 tablespoon of acv instead. Also I didn’t have coconut bacon so I sauteed Sweet Earth Hickory & Sage Flavored Benevolent Baconalong with the onions prior to adding the cabbage….DELISH! This is my new go to cabbage recipe!!!
Tiff I’m so happy you enjoyed it, even with your adjustments. Thank you for sharing!
Yes, the benevolent and the ingredients from the coconut bacon, minus the coconut made it work perfect for me.
