Wash and prep your cabbage.
Chop your head on cabbage into 1″ squares. Remove and discard the stalky heart.
Pour (up to) 2 cups of seasoned filtered water or broth in a crockpot or large sauté pan or stock pot. You want about 50% to 75% of the cabbage submerged in the liquid base.
Add your spices. (Season suggestions are listed below)
Stir, cover, and slow cook over low heat for up to 2 hours.
Check and stir every 30 minutes for up to 2 hours until it’s done. Stirring helps prevent browning.
The cabbage is done when it’s soft – not mushy.
Remove from the liquid. Shake, spin, or blot off excess liquid before serving.
I love this with some hummus and hot sauce. I have it as a snack all the time!
