Creamy Cabbage Sandwiches



I know what you’re thinking. Cabbage sandwich? That’s just bizarre. Not to mention the fact that it’s…purple. But if you like cabbage, you really need to give this sandwich a shot. It’s really tasty and the crushed red pepper gives it a nice little kick. Since my husband refuses to try this, I have four servings to myself so what I like to do is have the sandwich for the first serving and save the rest for packed lunches during the week. Just pack the cabbage mixture in a tupperware and bring the bread you want to top it with OR just eat it by itself (cold or hot!)!! Give it a try!! Here’s where I got the recipe (though mine is modified – this one looks just as delicious)!


1 small head of red cabbage

1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flake (more if you like it spicier)

1/2 cup greek yogurt (0%, 2%, whatever is available – you can also add more if you want it creamier)

Salt to taste

1-2 Tbsp olive oil

Enough bread for four sandwiches (highly recommend sour dough bread but whatever you have is fine)


  1. Assemble all the ingredients.
  2. Pour olive oil into a large skillet and turn burner on to medium heat.
  3. Chop red cabbage into bite size slivers (imagine trying to bite the pieces while they’re in a sandwich).
  4. Put cabbage and crushed red pepper flake in skillet and saute until cabbage is softened (but still retains a little crunch) – approximately 5 minutes. Add salt and mix completely.
  5. Pour cabbage into a large bowl and let cool for 5 minutes. In the mean time, toast your bread.
  6. Mix the greek yogurt in with the cabbage. You want every shred of cabbage to be lightly coated with yogurt so add more if necessary.
  7. Spoon enough of the cabbage mixture to cover one slice of bread and top with the other slice.
  8. Eat immediately – while the cabbage is still a little warm!

  1. I have to say I questioned how this would taste but it came out really good. I thing the sourdough bread made it perfect 🙂
