Kapusta can be used for everything from soup to pierogi.

Kapusta (the polish word for “cabbage”) is a traditional Polish dish made from braised cabbage or sauerkraut (kapusta kiszona or “sour cabbage”). Some kapusta is served with an ample amount of liquid (like a soup) while other varieties are cooked for a longer period of time so that the liquids reduce and the dish thickens. Here are three of the best ways to cook kapusta.
