ERB’s Red Cabbage: This vegetable belongs to the cruciferous family of vegetables and, much like its relatives, is brimming with antioxidants and health-promoting properties.
Nutrition Fact: Red cabbage has a good mix of vitamins and minerals, especially folate, which is essential during pregnancy and also helps the body to produce red blood cells. It also contains vitamin C, which helps protect our cells by acting as an antioxidant, and potassium, which we need for a healthy heart
How to use:Strip off the outer leaves, wash, then slice into quarters, cut out the hard central core on each, then chop or shred. Lock in the color by adding a touch of vinegar when cooking red cabbage in water. This stops the lovely deep purple hue from running. Don’t be too heavy-handed with red cabbage.
How to store:You can freeze raw cabbage and keep it for months.
