This week's featured green is cabbage. Red or green in color; it doesn't really matter. It's good stuff!! And although you may not believe it, there are actually better ways to eat it than soaked in mayo as a side dish to your fried chicken. In the nutrition world, cabbage gets some rave reviews. It's cheap to buy, freezes well, and contains a shit ton of protective vitamins. Also, you can eat an entire cup for 15 calories. Can I get a "Hell Yeah!" for cabbage??
This is NOT low calorie cabbage, just so we're on the same page...
I could spend all day spreading the cabbage love, but I won't bore you with those details. To sum it up, cabbage has loads of vitamins A, B, C and E, and its therapeutic value has been proven beyond a doubt. From infection to ulcers, cabbage has loads of healing properties.
So let's get on with the recipe! Just one tip, I've found that cabbage seems to have more of a "mellow" flavor after it's frozen so if you aren't big on the taste, try shoving a head in the freezer first. [Head of cabbage, not your head...just to clarify].
