Not as popular as kale or as sexy as the Brussel sprout, cabbage is a veggie that is often overlooked. It's part of the cruciferous clan, which means the health benefits are pretty much as good as it gets. It's hearty in nature, helping it keep well in the fridge, and is relatively inexpensive to boot.
Skip the excessive boiling and try one of these inspiring recipes instead to start getting this vegetable on your weekly roster.
