Cabbage in Mustard-Caraway Sauce

The distinct anise-like taste of caraway fuses perfectly with cabbage.  

Bill and I both like cooked cabbage and I was happy to see this recipe in the American Heart Association Cookbook.  The spicy mustard, yogurt and seasonings round out the sauce smoothly, making this cabbage a tasty side dish for most any meat.

Try this, if you’re a fan of cabbage too!

Cabbage in Mustard-Caraway Sauce


8 cups coarsely chopped cabbage

For the sauce:

2 cups fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
½ - 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
2 teaspoons cornstarch
½ teaspoon caraway seeds
¼ cup fat-free or light plain yogurt
¼ teaspoon grated lemon zest
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper


Steam the cabbage for 5 minutes, until tender-crisp, drain, set aside.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the sauce ingredients.
Cook for 2-3 minutes on low, until thickened.
Add cabbage and stir until well coated.
Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until heated through, don’t overcook.

  3. Pam, This is a great change of pace from the 'normal' cole slaw recipes! Sounds great...thanks for the recipe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Yum....cooked of my favs. The rest of this crew gives it a thumbs down, so I eat it ever chance I get when we go out to a country style kitchen.
    adding the yogurt is new for me, but sounds delish...

  5. I really enjoy cabbage. This is a really nice side dish. I have planted twenty green cabbage plants and look forward to the harvest. I have saved this recipe.

  6. I like cooked cabbage too, but Chris does not, so I don't get it very often. Might have to make this one night when he's not around :)

  7. I love cabbage! And have never cooked them with yoghurt before. Sounds good to me! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Apart from the distinctive smell of cabbage while it is cooked I really love it! This is a beautiful way to make it so full of aromas!

  13. That does sound good. I love Greek non-fat yogurt, I almost use it exclusively instead of sour cream now.

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
