Cabbage tends to be an overlooked vegetable. Because it is part of the cruciferous family, it has anti-cancer properties and is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Making a slaw is a great way to utilize this nutritious vegetable to eat on its own or pair with a lean protein. Enjoy!
There are lots of ways to incorporate cabbage in your diet, even after St. Patrick’s Day. Roasting vegetables is a heart-healthy cooking technique that produces tasty results. The basic components are a lower-moisture vegetable, some olive oil for water retention and a very high heat. One of the ways to decrease the fat content is to use a brush or olive oil mister to distribute the oil evenly without using more than is needed.
