Vegetable Spotlight: Cabbage
It’s warm outside and with most schools out for the year, it is feeling like summer is finally, officially here.
This long-awaited warm weather is bringing with it the return of farmers markets and abundant opportunities to try new vegetables, as well as prepare some of your standard favorites in new ways.
Each week this summer, we’re going to spotlight a vegetable and share some recipes from Pinterest that we hope will inspire you to either try the food or prepare it in a fun new way.
Today’s spotlight vegetable is CABBAGE!
Cabbage (Brassica oleracea) is a leafy green, white or purple multi-layered vegetable. It is closely related to broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. Cabbage is a good source of vitamin K, vitamin C and dietary fiber. It has extremely low glycemic index (10) and glycemic load (0.58) and cabbage – at least white cabbage – is also very economic as it is inexpensive and compact making it last for many meals.
