Cabbage is one of those veggies that is popular around St. Patrick’s day because of all the Irish Cabbage recipes. You can get pretty fancy with cabbage if you want, but for me, the best way to serve it is steamed with butter. Steaming is also one of the most simple preparations for this delicious vegetable.
Our recipe itself is simple, but some of the steps, like cutting the cabbage, are best for older kids or adults to do. However, there is still plenty for younger kids to help with if they want. They can assist with cleaning and placing the cut cabbage into the pan, as well as pouring the water in. There’s always a job for everyone who wants to help!
As far as eating the cabbage, I love it. But, to be honest, my picky eaters, Alex and Soph are not huge fans. They do eat it though and with continued trying, I’m hoping someday they love it like I do. It is a vegetable that really has some great health benefits–from fighting cancer to regulating blood sugar and more. I will continue serving it to my little fussy eaters, not just on St. Patrick’s day, but year round. It’s delicious and healthy!
