Keto Slow-Cooker Cabbage Casserole

Keto Slow-Cooker Cabbage Casserole

If you are seeking to streamline dinners, become ultra-efficient in the kitchen, yet at the same time wish to remain the awesome cook that you are, do we have the latest and greatest recipe for you!? Some call it a slow cooker cabbage casserole, we like to think of it as unstuffed cabbage rolls. In goes the ground beef, topped up by riced cauliflower and sliced cabbage; toss in some chopped tomatoes, onion and garlic, a pinch of spice, and all is nice. Now you have the honor of sitting and waiting while time does the work for you. It may lack the traditional flair, though all of the mouthwatering flavor will be packed in there, you still have to cut up your cabbage rolls to eat them, right?

Saving time, besides saving money, is one thing that all cooks strive for. We are here to tell you, that you don’t always save time by cooking fast. You read that right. There is much to be said for slow food and slow cooking. Time gives the ingredients the pleasure of melding and infusing together, plus it gives you unquantifiable time to converse and bond with family and friends while the scent of food slowly, but surely fills your home.

Speaking of slow, you may also find that lacto-fermentation suits your slower pace of cooking. Start with a simple sauerkraut, and work your way up to peach chutney and salsa – slow food that is ready to eat with the opening of a jar.
