Braised Cabbage & Johnny Cakes | Indianapolis Food Blogger 4


I’m determined to turn my husband into a veggie lover. Growing up, we always had a green vegetable with dinner. If we didn’t something was wrong, very wrong. That said, I’m a lover of cabbage. The tasty veggie is a staple in my home, usually made with bacon and all its glory. This time, I’m sharing an #AlmostVegan recipe. Braised Cabbage & Johnny cakes. What are JohnnyCakes you ask? Cornbread cakes. Light, Fluffy, Buttery goodness.

Grab the recipe for this dynamic duo below:

    Yum yum yum! This looks so delicious. I’m also a huge fan of cabbage. I love how easy it is to cook, and how cheap it is. And most importantly I love its savory sweet taste and yummy texture 🙂 I’m a fan of Johnny cakes too, and can’t wait to try them like this!
