This Quick Pickled Cabbage recipe takes only 10 minutes! It completely transforms the pickles, and adds a divine pop of flavour to any recipe. Use them in sandwiches, tacos, burgers and any recipe you like!
There’s something completely satisfying about a simple recipe that’s done so beautifully well. A recipe that doesn’t need much effort or work, yet comes out so divine that you wonder, what was that flavour that made it so unique?
Often times this has happened to me in restaurants and I realised that the chef did something to a particular ingredient that I’ve never done, so of course I wouldn’t be able to figure it out. Case in point – using pickled vegetables.
On their own it’s obvious, but when in combination with other ingredients, what a beautiful medley of flavours it can create! This Quick Pickled Cabbage certainly does that.
Add this to an already delicious vegan burger with a creamy sauce. To a taco. To a slaw. It creates something close to perfection. A sweet, brine-y flavour that you almost NEED each time now!
Pickling vegetables is one of my favourite ways to enjoy them. You transform something that already works, and make it way better, with way more flavour, thanks to our lovely friend vinegar. The vegetable becomes softer. More delicate in shape. Adds such a burst of flavour. Plus, it’s so easy to do. I love that you can pretty much pickle anything, with any flavour too. Some of my favourites:
Use this simple recipe for any of the above and see the magic to come alive. Boil the vinegar, then add the veggies, then soak. It’s really that easy. Then of course, let the fridge do the rest of the work for you. The real work happens when the vegetables are cooling, and by the next day, it’s like a true masterpiece.
Apart from the divine flavour, one of my favourite things about this quick pickled cabbage is that beautiful pink hue! It makes any meal automatically prettier, which already makes you feel like it’s going to taste better, so win, win, right?
