When I was young, I used to think that cabbage is a vegetable for the rich. I grew up in an island and we have no upland vegetables growing locally. Cabbage can only be bought at an exorbitant price back then. Once, when I was a teenager and was tasked to go to the market, I sneaked in a cabbage in the list. I wanted so much to taste this vegetable and see if it’s as amazing as it should be -given the price. (Forgive me if I have no understanding of economics back then)
So anyway, I ended up cooking it as Ginisa (just like this recipe) and I remember that I was not very impressed.
It’s good for you though. Its rich in all sorts of vitamins. It’s rich in fiber, and is extremely low in calories, only 33 calories in a cup of cooked cabbage. That’s why it’s so popular as a diet food!
