Have you ever seen one of these beauties? It is my favorite cabbage- crisp, striking, and slightly sweet. Not the sulfurous bitterness you can get from some leafy greens.
Savoy cabbage is a storehouse of vitamins- Vitamin K and C being the big ones, even Omega-3 fatty acids, folate, vitamin B6 and potassium can be found here.
At the farmer’s market this weekend one of these lovelies caught my eye, and I had to have it. They are huge, so be prepared for a number of cabbage recipes in the near future. Chinese chicken salad being the first. They are mild and sweet and can be eaten raw, braised, roasted, even in soups. Here is a picture of my farmer’s market bounty this weekend.
If you happen to get your hands on one yourself, here are some ideas for ways to use savoy cabbage…
- Chinese Chicken Salad
- Saute with garlic and olive oil
- Add to minestrone and other soups
- Make sauerkraut
- Make this amazing charred savoy cabbage salad
