A fun and healthy, vegan twist to a classic American sandwich, this oil free Instant Pot Ruben Cabbage Wedges are easy to make and oh-so-delicious.




  • 1 green cabbage, cut into wedges *

Broth Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon hot sauce *
  • 2 Tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon reduced-sodium tamari *
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons dried minced onions
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground caraway seeds (+/-) *
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon sea salt (+/-) *
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper (+/-) 

Other Ingredients:


  1. Clean the cabbage head by removing any lose leaves. Cut the core stem off; however, leave the hard core intact.
  2. Turn the cabbage upside-down so you can visibly see the center hard core. Slice the green cabbage in half through the hard core, then take each half and slice it in half.There should be 4 cabbage wedges. Do not slice out the hard-inner core, this will help keep the wedge together.
  3. Arrange the 4 cabbage wedges into the Instant Pot, hard core side down with the cut wedges facing inward.
  4. Place all the Broth Ingredients into a bowl, whisk well to combine, then pour the broth mixture over top of the cabbage wedges making sure that each wedge was wet with the broth, allowing the broth to seep into the creases of the cabbage leaves.
  5. Set the Instant Pot to Manual Pressure High for 11 minutes. When finished, press Cancel, all to sit for 5 minutes, then do a Quick Release.  Unplug the Instant Pot.
  6. Once all the pressure is released from the Instant Pot, remove the lid, and carefully remove the cabbage wedges from the Instant Pot using two large-slotted spoons, arrange on a serving platter.
