Healthy Cabbage Recipes

Lenka Pagan

As promised last week, here are some healthy ideas and recipes that use cabbage. 😊

Prepare cabbage according to your recipe. Generally, a good cabbage (red, white, green or hispi, the pointed cabbage) is great to eat raw in salads or coleslaw where you shred it or slice it as thinly as you can. Larger leaves (raw or cooked) can be used as wrappers for rice, grains and other vegetables. Read more about cooking methods, storing cabbage and one more cabbage recipeΒ here.
