Question about cabbage
« on: August 24, 2014, 01:31:38 PM »
OK.... i cant seem to find an anwer online... maybe you can help me.
I love cooked cabbage... and i love it raw as a salad.....
my question is.... which way is best to take best advantage of the nutrients it has to offer.... cooed or raw ?

some vegtables are better cooked for the body to absorb the nutrition.  some are better raw.... whats the story on cabbage.... and which kind is best.... red green or savoy ?

thanks

Lightly cooked, raw and fermented are all excellent.  There isn't any best or more nutritious way.  Any cooking should be quick and just allowing the cabbage to wilt.  Baking should be in temperatures as low as the dish requires.

It really depends on the nutrients you are after.

i have been eating it raw lately.... in a salad cut up like lettuce with tomatoes   i love it but i was thinking maybe it would be better to eat it cooked.  i guess a mix of both ways is best.

I love cabbage fixed any way! When I make coleslaw I always munch on the part near the core. Yummy!!
