It’s super easy, less cooking time, less expensive, and more Vitamin K compared to Cauliflower.

The texture of the riced cabbage is awesome and goes well with all Indian curries/gravies.

Cabbage is such a versatile and affordable vegetable, with the right spices and flavors, even your non-keto friends will have a blast consuming this!

Riced Cabbage Recipe

This recipe is for one serving although you can very easily double it to make two.


  • ½ cabbage medium
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • ½ tbsp. bouillon powder
  • 1 scallion
  • ½ tsp. salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. black pepper


  • Firstly, wash the whole cabbage thoroughly and pat dry well with a paper towel.
  • Secondly, chop them roughly and transfer to the electric chopper (works best) or food processor.
  • Also use the chop function to shred it into smaller pieces until it is in the size of rice (coarse chop, do not make it as a paste).
  • Similarly, chop the red bell pepper and scallions into small pieces.
  • Then, heat the olive oil in a pan and when it hot, add the bell pepper and scallions and then stir for a minute or two on medium-low heat.
  • After that, add the cabbage, salt, black pepper, and bouillon powder on medium heat, and mix everything until it begins to soften.
  • Close the pan with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes (stir in between as it gets burnt on the bottom layer quickly).
  • Lastly, once the raw flavor of the cabbage completely goes, switch off the flame and serve hot
