Nourish, Sequim’s new garden-to-plate restaurant and gathering place, is featuring a series of meals created using items from Nash’s farm share boxes each week.
According to Nourish co-owner Tanya, red and green cabbage are both super-healthy vegetables. But what are the differences?
Red cabbage has 10 times more vitamin A. One cup of red cabbage has about 33% of the recommended daily intake, whereas green has only 3%. Great for vision and keeping your skin and your immune system healthy.
But don’t turn away the green cabbage — it has twice the vitamin K than red cabbage, which is good for bone density.
So the best solution is buy both red and green and eat them both!
In the meantime, here’s a fantastic recipe courtesy of Nourish using Nash’s beautiful red cabbage.
1 onion, sliced
1 1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 cup green apple, sliced
2 tablespoon butter
1 two-pound red cabbage, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons honey
Black pepper & hot sauce
Place butter cabbage apples, honey and cinnamon in a large pot. Pour in vinegar and water, season with salt and pepper.
Bring to a boil and lower to a simmer, covered for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
