Cabbage and Dumplings

My father made this for us kids just as his mother made it for him and his brothers.

Now I pass on the tradition by making it for my children and husband.

Simple and delicious meal! Give it a try.


Cabbage, 1 head

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Dumplings (use your favorite recipe or 2 cans of biscuits as I did here)

Sea Salt grinder

Pepper grinder


  • Put a large pot of water on stove top to boil for dumplings.
  • Shred cabbage. I love using my new santoku knife for this!

  • Meanwhile, when water comes to boil cook dumplings for about 5 minutes. I used biscuits here. Just cut them into small pieces.
