Steamed Cabbage and Squash

Over the past few months, I’ve been working on incorporating more vegetables into our diet. As we’re trying new vegetables and cooking vegetables in different ways, I’m finding that I simply love vegetables!

Two of my favorites are cabbage and squash. I ate cabbage growing up, only in a stir fry though! The thought of cabbage any other way wasn’t exactly appealing. As far as squash goes, I just started eating it a little over a year ago. It’s delicious!

Steamed Cabbage and Squash is so simple to make!


Squash (1 medium/large, sliced)

Cabbage (about 2 cups worth diced up)

Butter (about 2 tablespoons)



1. Melt butter in large skillet.

2. Add in squash and cabbage, stir to mix with the butter. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

3. Cover and let steam for a few minutes or until the vegetables reach the tenderness you desire.

4. Serve and enjoy!

This makes a great side dish. I frequently fix this for an easy and yummy lunch. Paxton enjoys the steamed squash and I just love it!

  1. Sounds great! I love veggies, too and am trying to eat more, but they can get so boring! Thanks for the idea!

  2. Mmmm… when we make cabbage like this, we add orange zest/juice and poppy seeds, too. 🙂

  3. Glad you're enjoying eating more vegetables.
    Another simple idea is to just boil the cabbage and then add olive oil and lemon as a dressing plus salt and pepper. It's very tasty and healthy.
    It works as good with courgettes, cauliflower or broccoli.

  4. What a neat idea. I've steamed cabbage and onions before and I've steamed squash with onions before, but I've never steamed cabbage and squash together. I will have to try it. Thanks.

    1. I've never steamed cabbage and onions, that sounds fabulous! And I'm sure cabbage, squash and onions would be even better!!
