Napa or savoy green cabbage are the best options for this recipe, though purple cabbage would work as well!


  • 5 cups shredded cabbage
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives, or 2 teaspoons dried parsley (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • Sour cream, for serving


  1. In a large bowl, mix cabbage, flour, eggs, chives (if using) and garlic powder together until just combined.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, ladle a 1/4 cup of batter into skillet for each pancake. Cook until golden-brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining batter and remaining oil.
  3. Serve with sour cream and enjoy.
