Quite often, I find that the simple things in life are the best – especially when it comes to food. This Cabbage Creole is one of those things. It’s easy, quick and is packed with flavor. It’s a great way to use up some garden fresh veggies, too.
It puts a flavorful spin on the classic fried cabbage dish by adding onions, peppers, and tomatoes.
For even more flavor you could start with bacon grease rather than the butter that’s called for and even add in some creole seasoning instead of the salt and pepper.
It’s pretty versatile, and its crazy delicious! If you’re looking for a flavor-packed way to get your veggies in, this might be just the ticket!
