Cabbage has been cultivated for thousands of years and it is still a hit in the modern day. There are so many different cultures that incorporate this humble vegetable into their ethnic cuisine including those of the Caribbean Islands, Asia, and India . Cabbage is a fulfilling veggie being that with a single serving you can satisfy at least half of your daily Vitamin C requirement. Additionally, cabbage is sufficient in manganese, iron, and vitamin B6, and fiber. With its high nutritional value and low calories, cabbage is even the ideal food for those watching their weight (depending on how you prepare it).
