What’s GREAT at the Market this Week?
This week we are shining the spotlight on CABBAGE. Why! Well cabbages are in abundance now – both red and green and because it is such a versatile and delicious vegie if prepared well. It is also a great vegie to make gut loving sauerkraut from and mixed with other vegies in krauts of all sorts too
. If you don’t want to make it yourself Jess at Nourished Live Foods makes it so easy for you to buy her krauts. She makes a delicious beetroot kraut too.
Cabbages are among the most nutritious vegie to eat when eaten fresh from the market – picked for the market and with low food miles. And they are low in calories so they can make a veritable feast!
The green cabbage is such a sweet vegie that it is perfect for raw or cooked – in salads and slaws, for stir-frying and it is delightfulful when briefly steamed to retain is full flavour. I love streaming it with a big dab of butter on top – sublime. It also makes a great layered crunchy noodle salad.
How about a vibrant slaw with lots of colour and a sesame ginger dressing. I am loving this delicious recipe with ginger – continuing my enjoyment of ginger in lots of recipes including ginger and rhubarb. Hopefully it is warding off the sniffles.

Ginger is available at Summit Organics and Sylva Lining Organics.
