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:

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!!
Ali Maffucci says:
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.
Brenda B says:
I totally see that the Core/Bottom of the cabbage is placed on the handle/spikes part of the machine, Mary Beth. ;)
Ali Maffucci says:
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!
Melissa says:
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
Ali Maffucci says:
Happy to hear that! Glad this video was helpful :)
This makes it look so easy! Thank you for sharing!

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.
Ali Maffucci says:
Thanks for the feedback!!
Sandy smith says:
Wish there was a recipe right after the instructions. I'm lazy
Alice says:
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.
Ali Maffucci says:
Thanks for the kind feedback!
Nancy says:
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!
Ali Maffucci says:
Nancy - what kind of spiralizer do you have?
Cookie says:
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.
Lorraine says:
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
Ali Maffucci says:
If I don't say to cook it, then it's raw! Hope that helps :)
Caroline says:
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!
Judy says:
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! Thanks! Judy
Ali Maffucci says:
Yes, you definitely can!
gail nagy says:
This looks fantastic! I have been looking for something to shred cabbage for making sauerkraut. This looks like it would totally work. Any suggestions?

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
