Whenever I have a craving for Cabbage Noodles this side dish recipe is what comes to mind. I would make this recipe often in our pre-keto days. Pasta was a favorite in our home, no matter how it was made.
Since we started the Keto Diet, I wanted to still enjoy this cabbage noodles recipe. So, I came back, made a few changes by adding some bacon for fat and flavor, and substituted the pasta with Shirataki Noodles.
What are Shirataki Noodles
Shirataki Noodles are a tofu product that is shaped in the form of a noodle. While we do not mind them at all, others do find them to have a texture and odor that is not pleasant. You will have to decide for yourself if it is a product you would like.
Grumpy and I don’t have any issues with this product. Yes, there is an odor, but I only notice it when I have the noodles in a bowl by themself. Not once has Grumpy ever indicated to me he smelled a bad odor from the noodles in the food I have served him. Once added to food, I no longer notice it. And, the noodles do have a toothsome texture that is a little different from pasta. But again, this does not seem to bother these two pasta loving fools!
How I came to make the original recipe
When I first wrote this post I was living near Potsdam, NY area and working at Clarkson University. I had several friends that would rave about a cabbage noodles dish they would eat at a local restaurant. Because we tended to not drive to Norfolk to eat dinner out, I decided to just make the recipe on my own!
Sabad’s is the name of the restaurant my friends used to get their cabbage noodles from. When I looked their menu up online, at first, I wasn’t able to find it on the menu! After more searching, I noticed that it was a staple side dish served with all dinners. According to my friends, it was made with cabbages, carrots, onions, and butter. So, with that information, I went on to make this recipe!
Adjustments I made to this Cabbage Noodles Recipe
I added 2 strips of bacon to the recipe.
I used the bacon fat for sauteing the vegetables instead of 1 tbsp of olive oil
Shirataki Noodles were substituted for Egg Noodles.
If you would like to eliminate more carbohydrates from this recipe, you can remove all noodles and reduce the amount of carrots and onions in the ingredients.
