I wish I would have seen this over the summer! Hubs came home with the biggest cabbage in the world (really this thing was like 15 lbs). I ran out of ideas on what to do with it. I fried a lot of it and with some I added apple, it was YUM. I am going to keep this in mind for dinner sometime soon. I think my kids will really like this one. Also love that its GF!
