One of my favorite dishes that my dear departed granny used to make. Cabbage and Noodles.
1 package egg noodles
1 head of green cabbage
1 stick of butter
Dill, caraway, and salt (lots of salt) to taste.
Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Saute cabbage in butter until soft. Combine and season. Insanely good.
*EDITED TO ADD* …my grandmother used to add onions (I hate onions) and kielbasa (but I’m a vegetarian, LoL)

Vegetarian Cabbage and Noodles Delight


  • 1 package egg noodles
  • 1 head of green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 1 stick of butter
  • Dill, caraway, and salt to taste
  • Optional: 1 large onion, thinly sliced (skip if you don’t like onions)
  • Optional: Vegetarian kielbasa or your favorite meat substitute


  1. Prepare Egg Noodles:
    • Cook the egg noodles according to the package directions.
    • Drain and set aside.
  2. Sauté Cabbage:
    • In a large skillet, melt the stick of butter over medium heat.
    • If you’re using onions, add them to the skillet and sauté until translucent.
    • Add the thinly sliced cabbage to the skillet and sauté until the cabbage is soft and slightly caramelized.
  3. Combine and Season:
    • Add the cooked egg noodles to the skillet with the sautéed cabbage.
    • Sprinkle dill, caraway, and salt over the mixture according to your taste preferences. Be generous with the salt if you like it salty.
    • Optional: If you’re using vegetarian kielbasa or another meat substitute, add it to the skillet and toss everything together until well combined.
  4. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once the noodles, cabbage, and optional ingredients are well mixed and heated through, remove the skillet from the heat.
    • Serve the vegetarian cabbage and noodles hot, garnished with additional dill if desired.

This vegetarian twist on your granny’s classic cabbage and noodles retains the savory and comforting flavors without the onions or meat. It’s a hearty and satisfying dish that pays homage to your family tradition while accommodating your dietary preferences. Enjoy!
