Are you ready to switch gears? Holiday eating can be a little rough and I know I’m ready to get back on track. My Slow Cooker Cabbage Steaks from my new cookbook, The Vegan Slow Cooker Revised, are here to add an easy and healthy meal into your week.
This easy slow cooker recipe pairs cabbage steaks with potatoes that are cooked at the same time. Then you top with some unsweetened nondairy yogurt and some fresh dill. You can also salt and pepper to taste or even add a pinch of smoked paprika if you want.
This is probably the easiest way to make a meal of veggies and get started on your goals for the new year!
In case you didn’t know already, my latest book, The Vegan Slow Cooker, is actually a revised and expanded edition of my very first book. There are at least 20 new recipes and tweaks have been made on many of the originals.
There are all new photos by Kate Lewis and I like the new design of the book so much better. I also have added a slow cooker size for each of the recipes. If you only want one slow cooker then I recommend this Hamilton Beach model that lets you cook recipes for 2, 4, or 6 quart right in the same slow cooker!

How Do You Cut Cabbage into Cabbage Steaks?
It’s important to slice from the middle, where the core is. This helps the cabbage slices stay together when you move them to and from the slow cooker. Of course if you only have end pieces left just cook them on the side that’s contained in the single leaf.
What Else Can You Cook with the Cabbage Steaks?
In the recipe I use baby potatoes, but you could cook any root vegetable you like. You will need to cut them up into medium pieces, all about the size.
