The question isn’t “What can I spiralize?” The question is, “What can’t I spiralize?”
Today, we’re spiralizing cabbage! While spiralizing a cabbage doesn’t yield cookable noodles, it is an easy and quick way to shred cabbage or make slaw. Let me warn you: there’s no recipe in this post, it’s just a pure “how to.” I’m saving the recipe for Monday (you’ll just have to wait!) The smaller the cabbage, the easier, but to prove that a large cabbage can be spiralized, I’ve done just that.
As a disclaimer, the last 1/4 of the cabbage got stuck and stopped spiralizing, but I just readjusted it on the spiralizer and continued. So, don’t be alarmed if you have some trouble towards the end. It took me less than a minute to spiralize this large head of cabbage – cheaper than buying bagged cabbage slaw and quicker (and safer!) than hand chopping it.
How to Spiralize Cabbage
First, chop off the bottom of the cabbage and remove the outer layer.
Second, load the cabbage into the spiralizer, bottom side first and use Blade A.
It’s easy as 1-2-3 and it yields perfectly shredded cabbage, ready to be used in slaws, braised, added to salads or pickled!
The world truly is your oyster: go experiment! What will you spiralize this weekend? Try something new!
