View Full Version : how to get a cooked cabbage texture
07-13-2006, 04:58 PM
I have always enjoyed cabbage sauteed with onions; I used to use it as a pasta substitute when i was doing Atkins. Is there a way to get the same texture? could it be dehydrated w/oil on it?

YOU GOT IT!!!
I dehydrate mine after lightly coating with a bit of olive oil, that way when you dehydrate it, it gets warm and wilts, but doesn't dry out.
see, you already KNOW how to do this, same with the onions, it tastes soooooo good that way, I like them mixed in my veggie wraps with a touch of almond butter, and some nama shoyu, and some mushrooms, and carrotts, and well... you get the idea, I just like them YUMMY!!!!

I get paid today so I think I'll stop by Alissa's store and do some shopping. I haven't seen raw olive oil or noma shoyu locally (in NJ).
How long do you dehydrate the cabbage and onions?
I would like to do some bulk uncooking - make a lot of cabbage, etc. so I have food prepped for the week. In the summer it's not a big deal because the pace slows down a bit, but from Sept to June it gets crazy.
Will it keep in the fridge? For 3 or 4 days, maybe?
I'm taking a level one class tomorrow, I will have lots of questions for my teacher. I'm very excited.

well congratulations on taking level 1, you're gonna' learn so much cool stuff, I can't wait to take my classes with Alissa in Sept.
I don't know if the cabbage will last 4 days or not, you might try it with a bit, I know you can't freeze it.
I usually just make up what I want at that moment, as far as veggies and stuff, but I have marinated cabbage in the fridge in nama shoyu, and it is excellent, then dehydrated to soft when I wanted it, so you might try that.
you can make it in serving size portions on little plates, (like TV dinners) and pop into the dehydrator when you get home, then it will be ready in an hour or so.
I often do this, I just put my food in the dehydrator about an hour before I think I'll be hungry, only problem is --- if I am hungry, I eat a piece of fruit, then I don't want the dehydrated stuff when it's done. LOL
so, I just leave it in, until I do want it, so I know it can stay in the dehydrator for a couple of hours, no problem.
