While white cabbage is the popular variety, red cabbage offers more nutritional benefits as well as a bold and peppery flavor. Cabbages are a good source of vitamins C and K!
Store the whole head of cabbage in an airtight bag in a fridge for up to a week. It will lose freshness rapidly once the head is chopped. If you only need half a head, place the remaining half in an airtight bag and add a few drops of water onto the cut side and refrigerate. The cut half should last another few days.
Cabbages can be eaten raw or cooked. Make sure to remove outer leaves then either steam, boil, stir-fry or bake. Commonly used in salads and coleslaw and sliced thinly in soups and stir-fries.
