Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home without using preservatives or artificial colors.
Cabbage Is an Excellent Source of Nutrients
Cabbage has many health benefits and nutrients. It is a rich source of vitamins K, B-6, and C. It has a good amount of fiber, protein, calcium, iron, and minerals. It retains some of its delightful crunchiness even after cooking, and it has a distinct aroma that complements many other dishes.
Cabbage tomato soup is an easy recipe that you can make in about 20 minutes. In this, you get to eat sautéed cabbage with a spiced-up tomato puree. This is a delicious winter soup.
