We love cabbage. This is something I created using Splenda so keep within the South Beach Diet. Amount of seasonings are to be added per your personal taste. I recently made it with the addition of spinach which was also delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop cabbage.
  2. Saute in olive oil, adding more oil when (and if) necessary, till cabbage begins to wilt and brown a bit.
  3. Add the garlic (more if you like).
  4. Mix to combine.
  5. Season with salt, pepper, Splenda and red pepper flakes.
  6. Top with spinach.
  7. Cover to allow spinach to wilt.
  8. Serve immediately -- but delicious cold, as well.

This was such an easy and so good recipe! I added sliced red onion and deglazed with some white wine just because I had to use the onion and I was already drinking the wine:). Would be great as is too! I added four packets of Splenda because I used a large head of cabbage plus another half. Wasn't too sweet but these are all adjustable. I'm keeping this one for sure! Thanks! Oh, use the spinach, it's a huge plus.

I didn't add the red pepper or the optional spinach. I also added a tablespoon of butter. I liked the sweetness the splenda added to this but my husband didn't like it as much.

This was a really good recipe and I served it along with Honey Roasted Pork Loin #29493. I left out the red pepper flakes, splenda, and spinach. I just used a little bit of salt and spice right before I put it the serving bowl. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe.
