How to Prepare Cabbage

The humble cabbage may not seem like a superfood in the classic sense. But this everyday vegetable is packed with vitamins C and K and folate, and boasts immunity and digestion.


  1. Cut in half through the core.  
  2. Cut the halves into quarters. 
  3. Cut away the core. 
  4. Lay each quarter flat and slice into thin strips.

Here’s a delicious recipe you can try at home:
