  • ¼ of a medium sized cabbage
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt or adjust as needed
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3 tablespoons oil


To cook the cabbage on the stove

  • Wash and shred the cabbage, keep this aside.
  • Heat two tablespoons of oil in a pan and add the shredded cabbage.
    You may also use a skillet or a large pot instead, whichever is convenient for you to cook the shredded cabbage on the stove.
  • Stir well and cook the contents in low to medium heat for about 5 to 6 minutes or until the cabbage is cooked and the water is almost evaporated.
    The cabbage just needs to be cooked and the excess water content need to be evaporated, we really do not have to stir fry the cabbage for a long time, as the cabbage with the eggs is more delicious when the cabbage is still crunchy in texture.
  • Add enough salt to taste, stir well, keep this cooked cabbage aside.

To make scrambled eggs

  • In a small bow, beat the eggs very well, add salt and mix well.
  • In another medium sized pan, add the remaining one spoon of oil and add the egg mixture and let it cook for a couple of minutes in low to medium heat or until the eggs start to set in.
  • Scramble the eggs gently into small or medium sized pieces (make sure not to scramble the eggs too much and make the pieces too small, as small to medium sized pieces will taste the best).

To make stir fried cabbage and egg scramble for breakfast

  • Once the eggs are scrambled add the cooked cabbage little by little so you can adjust the amount of cabbage you need in the dish.
    I used all of that in the dish, but you may add as much as you need and save the remaining for later use. Stir everything well.
  • Add garlic powder and black pepper powder, stir everything well and stir fry the egg cabbage mixture for another 2 to 3 minutes or until the eggs and cabbage are lightly browned.


Serve the stir fried cabbage and eggs for breakfast or you may also enjoy this as a side dish with rice or any flatbread or you may also use this as a sandwich filling (along with mayo) if you like.
