How to Spiralize Cabbage

How to Spiralize Cabbage

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.

Third, spiralize!  How to Spiralize Cabbage

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!

  3. I love all the creative uses for this machine, I am going to have to get one!

  4. So many creative uses for this machine! Hmmm, I may need one!

  5. Wow, I never would have guessed that a cabbage would work,lol! I will be buying one to try it out! I just bought your e-book too! Can’t wait to look at it.

    Allisandra, we just tried the spiralized cabbage tonight with homemade spaghetti sauce. We’ve been following SCD for years and I’ve used thinly sliced cabbage as a “noodle” replacement for at least the last 4 years. However, tonight was the first time we were able to “twirl” our cabbage noodles around a fork! It was wonderful! Thank you for your site, ideas and recipes. So inspiring!

  7. Plaintains, onions, turnips and cabbage. You’re really outdoing yourself with finding ways to spiralize more vegetables. I’m going to try out the cabbage tuna and almond recipe tomorrow. I’d love for you to do a recipe with taro.

  8. Judy :

    I’m not sure how to identify the blades. Is there a mark on them somehwhere A,B,C? Love your recipes and ideas! The beet and roasted orange salad was delicious!
