Cabbage Recipes: Soup, Curry And Salad Dishes For The Week

It may have a slight funky odour when it's boiled or be a pain in the butt to chop, but when it comes to health, cabbage is your vegetable. About 100 grams of cabbage has 25 calories, 60 per cent of your daily vitamin C and 2.5 grams of fibre. Not only does it come in several varieties (red, Napa and even Brussels sprouts), but it can be mashed, fried, boiled and roasted.

Cabbage will also do your body a favour. The cruciferous vegetable is known for its cancer preventing properties and health experts say you can gain most of its benefits by eating it raw or lightly cooked. According to Zester Daily, you should also eat large pieces, not let it sit out for a long time and avoid overcooking it.

Here's what you need to buy this week, while the other necessary ingredients (like pepper, salt and oils) are likely already in your kitchen.
