Humble Cabbage

Cool Hive Daily - Savory Saturday
The humble cabbage is widely available and a superfood in its own right as it is a very good source of manganese, dietary fiber, potassium, vitamin B1, folate, and copper. Additionally, cabbage is a good source of choline, phosphorus, vitamin B2, magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, pantothenic acid, protein, and niacin. The glutamine in cabbage is a strong Anti-inflammatory, it is also a rich source of beta-carotene benefitting vision. Quite filling since it has high levels of fiber can benefit weight loss. Best used raw in slaws to preserve the nutrient content. Photo by Monika GrabkowskaCookie and Kate's coleslaw recipe is super delicious.
Cookie and Kate's Coleslaw Recipe
2 cups finely sliced purple cabbage (one small cabbage will be more than plenty)
2 cups finely sliced green cabbage (one small cabbage will be more than plenty)
2 cups shredded carrots (I used store-bought shredded organic carrots, but you could also grate them on a box grater, in a food processor, or julienne the carrots with a sharp knife)
¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
Up to ¾ cup mixed seeds (I used mostly pepitas—AKA green pumpkin seeds—and sunflower seeds, with some sesame seeds and poppy seeds)
Lemon dressing
¼ cup olive oil
2 to 3 tablespoons lemon juice, to taste
1 clove garlic, pressed or minced
½ teaspoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon salt Photo by Monika Grabkowska
