Air frying cabbage is a quick and healthy way to enjoy this vegetable with a crispy texture. Here’s a simple recipe for air-fried cabbage:
- 1 medium-sized cabbage, shredded or chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or your favorite seasonings
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
- Prepare the Cabbage: Shred or chop the cabbage into bite-sized pieces. Make sure the pieces are relatively uniform in size for even cooking.
- Season the Cabbage: In a large bowl, toss the cabbage with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any optional seasonings you like. Mix well to ensure the cabbage is evenly coated.
- Air Fry: Place the seasoned cabbage in the air fryer basket in a single layer. If your air fryer is not large enough, you may need to cook the cabbage in batches.
- Cooking Time: Air fry the cabbage at 375°F (190°C) for about 10-15 minutes, shaking the basket or stirring the cabbage halfway through the cooking time. Keep an eye on it to prevent overcooking; cooking times may vary depending on the size of your cabbage pieces and the specific air fryer model.
- Check for Crispiness: Check the cabbage for crispiness. If it’s not as crispy as you’d like, you can continue cooking for an additional few minutes.
- Serve: Once the cabbage is crispy and golden brown, remove it from the air fryer and serve immediately. You can enjoy air-fried cabbage as a side dish or use it in other recipes.
Feel free to customize the seasonings to suit your taste preferences. This method works well for various types of cabbage, including green cabbage, Napa cabbage, or red cabbage. Enjoy your air-fried cabbage!
