Keto Fried Cabbage Recipe

Here’s the fried cabbage, which is really easy to make. Just add coconut oil into a frying pan and then fry the shredded cabbage until it’s softened to your liking and then season with salt and/or pepper.

If you like your cabbage really soft, then add 1/4 cup of water into the frying pan and place a lid over it for 10 minutes. This will steam the cabbage and soften it.

Creamy meatballs are actually a pretty common dish in Sweden. These Swedish meatballs are made using soured cream, so could be an option for those who do include dairy in their diet.
