Product of the Week

Appearances can be deceiving when it comes to veggies! Cabbage is sometimes considered to be similar to lettuce because of its looks, but it’s actually a member of the cruciferous vegetable family, like kale and broccoli. These are loaded with healthful benefits and protect against radiation, prevent cancer and reduce heart disease risk.

And while cabbage is low in calories, it’s packed with a powerful punch of nutrients including: vitamin K and B6, manganese, potassium, calcium and magnesium. There’s also an astounding variety of cabbages out there, and untold numbers of way too prepare it. Here’s one of our favorites:

Stir-Fry Cabbage

What You’ll Need:

2 teaspoons canola oil
1 small onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 head napa cabbage, cleaned and sliced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

What To Do:

In a large saute pan over medium-high heat, add the canola oil and heat. Add the onion, garlic and ginger and saute, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the cabbage and cook until just starting to wilt, about 2 minutes. Add the soy sauce and rice vinegar and stir well and cook just until cabbage is wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and drizzle with the sesame oil.
