Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 13 x 9" (33 x 23 cm) baking dish.
  2. Shred the green cabbage using a sharp knife, mandolin slicer, or a food processor.
  3. Melt the butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Fry the cabbage, onion, and garlic for 8-10 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened. Add the heavy cream, sour cream, cream cheese, and spices. Reduce heat to medium-low, stir together and simmer uncovered for 5-10 minutes, or until combined and creamy.
  4. Spread the mixture into the baking dish and sprinkle the cheese on top. Bake on the middle rack, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and is lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Tip!

These rich flavors pair beautifully with grilled - or fried - meat and fish. Whip up a double batch, and freeze the extra in small containers for a quick side dish any night of the week. Save even more time by using pre-shredded coleslaw – just avoid mixes with carrots if you can.

    Has anyone made this without onions to lower the carb count? I am doing that I write. We’ll see if the flavor is still good.

    Just use double cream instead of whipping cream and you can make your own cream cheese by adding lemon juice to cream, letting it curdle then leave to drain.

    Made this as part of my meal prepping for 5 lunches. Unfortunately I could not eat it and threw the entire thing out. The texture was awful and the taste was not good. If you're not a cabbage lover you prob won't like this.

    OMG - this is so good. Followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. Partner said "this is a keeper!"

    I must have done something wrong because I didn't like this dish at all. It's like coleslaw cooked, with too much mayo in it. I followed the directions, but there was way more cheese than cabbage. What happened?

    The words ranch seasoning hyperlink to a recipe on our website. It uses very common spices that you may already have on hand.

    Why are the carbs so high on this? Where are they coming from?

    Cabbage, onion, garlic, whipping cream, sour cream - they all have carbs and can add up quickly!

    💕this is a favorite! We have this all the time! My husband says "I never thought I would be asking for cabbage but this is awesome". I do add more cream cheese and sour cream and a little less heavy cream. Not sure what I did to the last one I made but I was told it was the best one I ever made! Thanks for the GREAT recipe!

    Substituted 12 oz can evaporated milk for the heavy cream, used 1 oz ranch powder mix, minced 10 cloves garlic, 4 oz sour cream,

    Fabulous dish—just made it and my husband can’t get enough of it. So I probably won’t have any for freezing—but I wondered if the sauce would separate out if I reheated after freezing? Anyone tried it?

    Hi Mary, so glad that you and your husband enjoyed! It mentions freezing a double portion in the tips, so you can certainly freeze and reheat this if you would like. It may change consistency slightly on reheat, but you may want to look through our freezer-friendly guide for some helpful hints https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/recipes/keto-meal-prepping-and-fr.... I hope that helps!
