Wooden Spoon– Use a regular wooden spoon to stir in the veggies.


Main Ingredients Of This Dish

Cabbage– I used a medium head of cabbage for this recipe.

Onion– I chopped a small onion to use in this dish.

Egg Noodles I used a pack of regular egg noodles, but feel free to use the broad ones or any type you like.



Vegan Butter– Ran out of butter? Don’t sweat it, just use oil as a sub! Use 1/2 cup of oil to replace the butter in this recipe.

Mafalada Pasta – Allergic to eggs? Use this vegan-friendly pasta as a replacement for the egg noodles or any other eggless noodle you prefer.


All The Ingredients

  • Egg Noodles– Cooked and added to the cook veggies.
  • Butter– Melted in a saucepan and used to the veggies.
  • Cabbage– Cored, chopped, and cooked with carrots and onion.
  • Onion– Chopped and cooked in butter.
  • Carrots– Peeled and chopped.
  • Salt and Pepper– Added to cabbage and noodles for flavor.
  • Sour Cream– Serve on top of the cabbage and noodles.


How Did We Make It?

  1. Cook the egg noodles according to the package instruction.
  2. To a skillet, add the butter and allow it to melt, then add in all the vegetables.
  3. Cook the veggies for 15 minutes and stir constantly.
  4. Once they are tender, add the egg noodles to the pot and stir to combine.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve warm with sour cream.


Cook The Veggies!

Once the butter had melted in the saucepan, I added the chopped vegetables and cooked them for about 15 minutes, stirring often until they were fork tender. Why did I stir constantly? I did this to ensure that all the veggies were evenly cooked and it also prevented them from sticking to the bottom of the pan and burning.  


Different Method, Same Dish

Making this dish was easy and took only a step to complete, all I had to do was cook the vegetables in the melted butter until tender. However, there are many other ways to make this dish, here’s one! Start by melting the butter in a skillet, then add the onions and cook until caramelized, next add the cabbage and carrots, and cook until tender, season to taste.   


Storing Chocolate Cabbage And Noodles

Due to the moisture content of haluski, leaving this dish out at room temperature after cooling is not recommended, as bacteria thrive on moist foods. So to be safe, store the leftovers in an airtight container and place them in the fridge for 3-5 days or up to a month in the freezer.


This delicious cabbage and noodle dish is a hearty one-pot meal and comfort food that will leave your hunger satisfied! It’s quick and easy to make and great if you’re on a budget, serve this to your family for dinner and I promised you, they will gobble it up!
