Cabbage is easy to grow, cheap to buy, and nourishing and tasty to eat – there’s little more you can ask from a plant.
This gut-friendly veggie is known for being high in fiber, and it serves as an excellent source of vitamins C and K. When eaten raw, cabbage has a cool, satisfying crunch and mild flavor. When roasted, the cabbage leaves tenderize, enhancing the vegetable’s natural sweetness. Cabbage can be fermented, at which point the vegetable transforms into the beloved tangy treat known as sauerkraut. Cabbage also serves as the base for kimchi, a fermented, spicy Korean delicacy.
