Yes, you can spiralize cabbage! While you won’t get cabbage “noodles,” spiralizing cabbage is an efficient way to slice and shred.

By using the Inspiralizer, you can effortlessly shred cabbage in under 30 seconds!

Want to learn how?

Shredding cabbage can be messy and tough to do with a knife – I’ve never fully succesfully shredded a cabbage that way, I always end up with thicker chunks and tossing part of the cabbage.

Spiralizing a cabbage is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Select Blade A,
  2. Align the top of the cabbage with the central coring blade and the bottom of the cabbage onto the teeth of the handle, and then
  3. Spin the handle to spiralize!

Now, watch this video to learn exactly how to spiralize red cabbage:

  1. Well, if this isn’t just brilliant! I think your written instructions are the opposite of what the video shows (as far as “top” vs “bottom” of the cabbage.) But, boy! Does this ever simplify a messy job! I love red cabbage – in a simple slaw, in stir fries, in a salad! Thank you!!

    • Mary Beth – the bottom of the cabbage is what goes on the central coring blade, as in the video! The bottom is where the stem used to be attached! Hope that helps.

    • I totally see that the Core/Bottom of the cabbage is placed on the handle/spikes part of the machine, Mary Beth. ;)

    • Wow, that’s what you get for responding BEFORE your first cup of coffee – yes, you are totally right! I adjusted the verbiage in the blog post. Thanks for catching that!

  2. Wow! I hate chopping cabbage but this makes it so easy. My daughter loves red cabbage and I think we will be eating more of it now :-D

  3. This makes it look so easy! Thank you for sharing!

  4. This technique would be perfect for making cole slaw. A lot faster and less messy than doing it with a knife. Techniques like this will make me use my Inspiralizer more.

    Wish there was a recipe right after the instructions. I’m lazy

  6. Wow you made my day. Going out to get some cabbage and carrots and make some delish cole slaw. Yummy. Thanks for the amazing video.

  7. I just got my spiralizer ~ I’m having some issues with it though ~ the other day working with jicama! instead of getting noodles I was getting flat spirals! Any suggestions, also the prongs had a hard time holding on, it kept falling off, almost think my prongs are bent!

  8. I just got a Paderno spiralizer. Got it for mothers day from my daughter. Used it tonight for the first time. Loved doing it just have difficulty figuring out what blade to use. There are no A B C D. Do have four blades.I will figure it out. I really excited with this new chapter in my life.

  9. I have just started to spiralize and live in the uk so some ingredients are not available to me (I have your cookbook). In your beetroot superfood bowl and other beetroot recipes, you do not state if beetroot is raw or cooked. Can you give me a better know how on whether the beetroots should be cooked or raw ? Thank you

  10. I bought a red cabbage for the first time yesterday and can’t wait to try it out in a recipe this week. You’re videos are so helpful!!! Thanks Ali!

  11. I am loving this! Can I do a head of lettuce like you did the cabbage….shredded lettuce for tacos?
    I love the cabbage idea for cole slaw salads and I guess this will be my next piece of kitchen equipment!

  12. This looks fantastic! I have been looking for something to shred cabbage for making sauerkraut. This looks like it would totally work. Any suggestions?
