Richly Delicious Vegan Cabbage Extravaganza – The Perfect Summer Meal

With the rise of kale, cabbage seems to be a veggie that has been greatly overlooked over the last years.

Cabbage, however, boasts some amazing health benefits, too, as it’s a very good source of manganese, dietary fiber,  calcium, magnesium, and potassium. It is also rich in various vitamins including vitamin C, B6, A, K, and E. With a 100 gram serving of cabbage containing about 25 calories, it proudly takes the title of a healthy addition to your diet and the perfect summer dinner that will not weight you down. It is also high in antioxidants including flavonoid, zeaxanthin, lutein, choline, and beta-carotene.

I had a weird relationship with cabbage, as I would love to eat it raw in a salad with carrots, but eating it cooked would literally make me sick. The rest of my family loves to eat cooked cabbage, though, and I decided I have to re-think my relationship with this healthy veggie.

This is when I realized it all comes to cooking and spicing it up the right way! Never underestimate the power of the right spices! This potato cabbage recipe will not disappoint you! It’s super easy to prepare, yet it gives you a tasty dish that will satisfy the whole family!
