Cabbage = Coleslaw

Cabbage was the pride and joy of Morris’ garden. Whenever someone asked him what was growing in his garden, he had one thing to say, and one thing only: “Cabbage.”

I’m not even sure if he ate it much before he decided to grow it, but he definitely knew he wanted to. And I’m not sure he even likes the taste of it very much because there are always leftover pieces whenever I add it to his dinner plate… There’s just something about it, I guess.

Tonight, he pulled a second one from his garden, and we chopped it up for coleslaw. As I was chopping, he was away playing toys… All I had to do was mention that I was ready to use his cabbage, and he ran right to me to help out. So, we made coleslaw together:

1 head of cabbage, finely chopped

½ cup diced onions

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup white or apple cider vinegar

¼ cup olive oil

¼ cup cilantro (because I love it in everything)

1 tbsp sugar

Morris was very proud of the bowl we placed on the dinner table. He was very proud he grew that cabbage.

  1. Yummy! My mom also loves cilantro in everything. 🙂 Hope you two enjoyed your cabbagy bounty in the form of coleslaw! Interesting fact: kol means cabbage in Dutch, and sla means lettuce. I’m assuming it’s the same in German.
