A Healthy St.Patrick’s Day – Honeyed Cabbage


Whether culturally accurate or not, one can hardly celebrate St. Patrick’s Day without corned beef, cabbage and a green-tinted brew. Unfortunately, most renditions of the presumed ‘Irish favorite’ have more to offer as decoration than nutrition. Rather than resort to another tasteless version of the old standard St. Paddy’s fare, we’ve created our own interpretation that’s sure to be a favorite for years to come.

1- head of cabbage 

1/2- onion

baked ham or bacon 

1 1/2 tsp honey (we used Dandelion)

salt + pepper, garlic powder 


Preheat oven to 450 

Slice Cabbage into disks and place on a lined baking sheet ( pre- sprayed ) 

Drizzle honey and olive oil, sprinkle garlic powder and salt + pepper

Bake for 15 minutes, turn over and continue for 10 minutes more

Slice onion + ham 

Heat a skillet with olive oil and add onion + ham, after 5 minutes drizzle with honey and allow to caramelize

Plate the ham + onion mixture onto each cabbage disk

You can also crumble up croutons or parmesan crisps on top with 1 tablespoon olive oil
