How do you cook your cabbage? I have noticed most people especially kids don’t enjoy cabbage. It maybe the way you cook it. Today I’m sharing my cabbage recipe, a very simple way to cook tasty cabbage yet healthy. If you have ever tasted my cabbage you know what I’m taking about.

Cabbage is such a nice and nutritious vegetable. It’s Among vegetables which  boost the immune system.
Don’t abuse it by overcooking. I have seen people cooking cabbage by boiling, then adding spices cooking until it turns sweet.
No no no, don’t cook your cabbage this way. It looses all the nutrients.
I’m going to share with you my secrets for a  delicious cabbage.
My first secret is lots of chopped onion. I mean why putting a small onion? When I’m cooking my vegetables I give them my all. Putting lots of onion, garlic and spring onions, also bell peppers, if you have them put on your cabbage.

The other secret is green onions, or spring onions, you can also use fresh coriander, parsley or celery. But the spring onions just adds such a nice flavour to the cabbage. And wait until you are about to remove cabbage from the stove then put your chopped green onions.
Now the other secret is grated carrot, it give a nice colour and adds a nice flavour too. Then the last touch is aromatic herbs and salt. Coriander, fennel, bay leaves, cumin these 3 I put on my cabbage, it makes it smell and taste delicious and on top of that, it adds nutritional values to my cabbage. Now the smell and the look of your cabbage alone will attract your family. And that’s the trick with health food, yes it should taste nice but it’s not always about taste.

There you have it, my secret of a delicious cabbage.
