Oven roasted red cabbage recipe
This is one of our favourite Yule recipes here at Chez Green.
And last week we had an enormous red cabbage in our Abel and Cole organic vegetable box so we pretended it was the festive season all over again!
Providing excellent sources of Vitamin K and C, cabbages are positive power houses when it comes to delivering anti oxidant nutrition. They are regarded by naturopaths as one of the greatest healers of the vegetable kingdom.
Cabbage improves digestion, can be used to expel worms and the vitamin U in cabbage can soothe and heal ulcers. It is used to treat the common cold, whooping cough and even helps treat mental depression and irritability.
Cabbage owes many of its healing properties to its abundant sulphur content which is warming, destroys parasites and purifies the blood.
If you suffer from cold extremities, cabbage is your friend! Our recipe is slow baked in the oven and uses warming spices of cinnamon and nutmeg so is prefect for thawing out fingers and toes. Read the recipe or check out our video!
