Instant Pot Cabbage (Low-Fat)

This recipe for Instant Pot Cabbage is so easy and delicious. Cooked cabbage makes a great side dish with no fat.

  • Total Time: 19 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 head green or red cabbage, chopped roughly
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano or dried thyme
  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Combine the cabbage, dried herbs, and broth to the bowl of an 6-quart or 8-quart electric pressure cooker.
  2. Lock the lid and set the time to 4 minutes at high pressure.
  3. When the cooking time is complete, carefully use the quick-release to get rid of the pressure. Remove the lid and use tongs to remove the cabbage to a serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. 
  4. Serve hot and refrigerate or freeze any leftovers.


  1. You can use water instead of broth to cook the cabbage, if you prefer.
  2. If you like the cooked cabbage to be slightly crunchy, decrease the time a minute or two and if you like the cabbage very soft add a minute or two.
  3. You can store the cooked cabbage in the refrigerator for 3 days in an airtight container.
  4. You can mix in cooked sausage, shredded chicken, or ground beef to the cooked cabbage to add protein and make this into a filling meal. For plant-based options, add in seasoned tempeh or black beans.
  5. The total cooking time includes approximately 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to come up to pressure.
