Cabbage, like beets, is a vegetable that many people have negative childhood memories of eating, putting them off it for life. If this sounds like you, we invite you to give it another try using one of our favourite ways to prepare it.
A few of Jolianne's favourite ways to prepare it include simply steaming chopped cabbage and topping it with a drizzle of apple cider vinegar - it's one of Milo's favourite ways to eat it, believe it or not!
Another option is to slice up a head of cabbage and fry it along with ground meat and a drizzle of tamari or soy sauce as it cooks. One pan wonder!
Or why not try this cabbage stif-fry recipe - a great summer option to beat the heat!
