What Is Cabbage?

Is cabbage a vegetable? Is it a fruit? Botanically speaking, it’s both! Cabbage is (usually) green and leafy and grows in cool weather. It’s a staple of European cuisine but can be found worldwide.

Cabbage is a vegetable typically used in salads but can also be cooked. It is very low in calories, and a good source of vitamins C and K. Cabbage can be bought fresh or frozen and comes in several colors, including green, red, and white.

Air Fried Cabbage Ingredients

If you’re looking for an easy, delicious way to prepare cabbage, you need to try air frying it! This technique produces a light and crispy result, perfect for any meal. To make air-fried cabbage, you’ll need a few simple ingredients:

Cabbage: We recommend fried red cabbage, but you can also use green or white. If you want to make roasted air fryer cabbage steaks, slice them into steaks about 3/4″ thick; otherwise, you can shred them by cutting them into smaller pieces. Either will work with this recipe.

Oil: Any high heat oil will work in this recipe. You can use olive oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, or even coconut oil.

Seasonings: I added some simple seasonings, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes for some added flavor.
