I guess so - it's been the ingredient of several dishes that I've eaten. However, it's prepared in such a way that it doesn't taste like school dinners :P

I love cabbage, especially sauerkraut.

I like in in bigos, in salad, in pierogi and in kapuśniak (sauerkraut soup).

This thread made me want some bigos. I'm going to the kitchen to warm some up ;-)

Popular cabbage dishes in Poland are:
1. Bigos (made from sauerkraut and fresh cabbage).
2. Kapuśniak soup
3. Pierogis stuffed with cabbage and mushrooms.
4. Gołąbki rolls
5. Boiled cabbage salad

And my favourite
4. Sauerkraut carrot salad, often served in our school canteen.

If I skipped some dish, correct me.

Mmmmmm... Cabbage. It's cabbage's evil little brother, the brussels sprout that you have to be careful with.

I'm afraid your boyfriend went to the cabbage in disguise of pierogi, in order to make you less worried about his cabbade-addiction :)

3. Pierogis stuffed with cabbage and mushrooms.

Cabbage cooked nicely - steamed, then served with a butter and a dash of salt and pepper is a fine way to keep up your vegetable intake. However, I have a jar of sauerkraut in my fridge and I need more ideas of what I can do with it.

The best use of cabbage is in gołąbki. Or soup. :)

This is very ambiguous as in Polish there is a slang for a girl or girlfriend - "kapusta" (cabage). So you might say Polish males eat even more cabage than Polish females do.

They think cabbage is healthy.

I have been here for 3 months

hotdog has cabbage
hambuger has cabbage
kebab has cabbage

if you order a meal it usually has cabbage on the plate somewhere.

I think if they could find a way to put cabbage on pizza they would.

Never heard of that...

But in other slangs "kapusta" means money. So who's got more cabbage? ;)

Neither have I.

Probably Z darius meant sth else.

But in other slangs "kapusta" means money.

Yes, that`s it.

I have been here for 3 months

hotdog has cabbage
hambuger has cabbage
kebab has cabbage

Hmm, are you sure you don`t mistake fried onion for cabbage??????

No, I didn't.
While certainly not mainstream, the slang use of the word stems form one of regional answers to the question:

"mommy, where do children come from?"
'they are found in a cabbage field, dear".

I heard it from a few dozen people, mostly in Western Poland (lubuskie)
pawian 155 | 8,534

But cabbage field is literal here. An old superstition, or rather a politically correct reply to the question where children come from, is that they are found by parents in cabbage or are brought by a stork.

So, kapusta still has nothing to do with girls, girlfriends, even in slangish meaning.

:):) I get this attempt of a joke here. Children are found in cabbage which metaphorically means they are found in girls. That`s what you mean?

However, I may assure you that kapusta has never been used as a slang expression for a girl or girlfriend in Poland. Google "kapusta dziewczyna" and you will see zero results.

Sorry, someone has misinformed you.

Bravo!

You have never heard it. I did numerous times and first hand. I needed no information from anyone.

Instead of contradicting, why don`t you admit you are wrong on this? :):):) No Pole here will corroborate your stance...

Me saying I never heard it would be lying.
You saying you never heard it is true.
You saying I never heard it is lying.

No Pole here will corroborate your stance..

So what?

see and look for this text:

A teraz przez Was moja kapusta nie rozumie, co do niej mówię, nooby!

# Polish girlfriend for which you have no longer feelings for

Finally someone who knows Polish :)

You are right and that is how the Cabbage Patch dolls were born..........You Poles think the stork still brought you.........LOL

Maybe he is thinking of "Pusta glowa" as in Blond
